Reimaging Cannabis Regulation: Rescheduling vs. Descheduling

Reimagining Cannabis Regulation Rescheduling vs. Descheduling_675

As the legal landscape surrounding cannabis continues to evolve, there is considerable debate and discussion regarding the classification of cannabis under federal law. Currently, cannabis is classified as a Schedule I controlled substance under the Controlled Substances Act, which presents various challenges and implications for individuals, businesses, and communities. The program explores the merits, drawbacks, and potential consequences of two distinct approaches: rescheduling cannabis to a lower schedule within the existing framework or descheduling cannabis entirely. We seek to delve into the legal, social, and economic implications of each approach, considering perspectives from experts in law, policy, and advocacy.
