For today's weed news we go to great Washington DC.
The United States Surgeon General, the nation's most important doctor, has just officially come out in support of reclassifying cannabis!
That's right, Jerome Adams, who, throughout his career as Surgeon General has been quite accepting of weed, made numerous statements recently explaining how the current classification of cannabis as a schedule 1 controlled substance, makes it extremely difficult for scientists and doctors to study. He believes that because of the lack of real data, the scientific community as well as the American people are not able to truly understand the plant and/or it's many benefits and possible side effects.
"Just as we need to look at criminal justice laws, rules and regulations, we need to look at health laws, rules and regulations, and that includes the scheduling system... I'll take it somewhere else, marijuana. We need to look at the way we schedule different medications across the board, because one of the concerns that I have with marijuana is the difficulty that folks have to do research on it, because of the scheduling system," said Adams during a speech at a recent drug recovery conference.
I totally agree with the Surgeon General. I'm convinced that keeping cannabis a schedule 1 substance, which is defined by having no medical uses and a high potential for abuse, is not motivated by trying to keep the public safe, but by greed and money from pharmaceutical and prison union lobbyists and others.
I feel like the minute that cannabis does get rescheduled will be the absolute tipping-point and after that it's all going to be much easier for cannabis to prosper in America and beyond.
But although it's really nice to hear someone in the federal government proposing a change to the scheduling system, the Surgeon General is mostly a ceremonial position. Therefore we shouldn't think that he himself is going to have much of an effect on the current laws.
But him being aware of the problem is yet again another clear sign that the Cannabis law reform movement is now reaching people that it never has before. And as long as we continue doing what we've been doing, and that's being vocal and taking action and trying to bring the truth about cannabis to light, we will see this shit be legal sooner than most people think. #SpinachStatus

And that's what's up with the Surgeon General!
