There is much confusion on Cannabis and the way Federal and state laws view this amazing plant. In the United States, the use and possession of Cannabis is illegal under federal law for any reason by the Control Substance Act of 1970. Cannabis is classified as a Schedule I substance.
Cannabis was supposed to be placed in the Schedule 1 category temporarily; however, it remained in Schedule I, along with heroin and PCP, since President Nixon signed the CSA into law. Because it is a federal law, the CSA, and the designation of Cannabis in Schedule I, has been and remains the supreme law of the land. The three criteria for Schedule I designation are that there is a lack of currently accepted medical use in treatment, a high risk of abuse, and a lack of accepted safety for the use of the drug under medical supervision.
Why this designation is a farce: There is medical proof that CBD works. What is the abuse? Acceptable use – rub it on and it works? CBD oil is made from Hemp and does not create any risk or degradation of health. It grows naturally on the earth and has no artificial ingredients added. Farming alone will be one of the largest growing industries when the Cannabis market takes off. Time to make this plant legal.
Make sure you are abiding by the laws of our state. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Legality_of_cannabis_by_U.S._jurisdiction
