IPO of Rua Bioscience, a medical cannabis company, expected in October

Marijuana activists have recently filed a petition in the U.S Supreme Court with a plea to hear their case against DEA. Through this petition, cannabis activists are basically challenging constitutional laws prohibiting cannabis use and are hoping for its decriminalization at the federal level.

The odds that the Supreme Court will be acting on the petition this year are fairly low. But optimists like Michael Hiller think that due to excessive confusion surrounding marijuana laws and severe dependency of some patients on marijuana, Supreme Court will take up the case by next year if not any sooner.

What is DEA?

Why does it criminalize marijuana?

DEA or Drug Enforcement Administration is a drug enforcement organization in the United States.

This organization considers cannabis and marijuana as illegal substances because of their tendencies to create a psychoactive effect. These psychoactive effects cause sedation, confusion and impaired judgement among various other repercussions.

Despite of increasing pressure by marijuana activists, DEA has stood its ground. Recently, these activists have accused the agency for delaying actions or decisions surrounding petitions relating to marijuana legalization.

Due to continued petitions filed by marijuana activists, the court has now decided to use other judicial options in its power if this type of behavior continues by the agency.

According to Joseph A.Bondy, a pro bono counselor for marijuana activists, the court could compel the agency to act, sanction them or have a hearing with them if there is any further undue delay.

Plaintiff’s arguments in support of their appeal

The current lawsuit made against DEA by activists was first filed three years ago in 2017. It established that classifying marijuana as a Schedule 1 drug was a health risk to patients.

The court’s ruling to that initial petition came in the following words:

“Taking the facts as alleged, and, accordingly, taking the supposed benefits some plaintiffs have experienced from marijuana as true as well, we—like the District Court below—are struck by the transformative effects this drug has assertedly had on some Plaintiffs’ lives. As a result, we are troubled by the uncertainty under which Plaintiffs must currently live.”

In response to this ruling, Michael Hiller had tweetedThis case represents the first time in history that a lawsuit challenging the constitutionality of the CSA has survived dismissal. #TheFightGoesOn, as we continue to advocate for de-scheduling of Cannabis, patient liberation, & freedom for those wrongfully imprisoned.”

Why is Rescheduling important?

Schedule 1 of the Controlled Substance Act contains all those drugs that have no current medical use. This restrictive category includes drugs that have a high potential for abuse and can cause addiction.

Advocates for marijuana decriminalization argue that this criterion does not stand true for the drug. A large number of marijuana patients clearly imply marijuana’s medical purposes.

Plaintiffs who depended on medical marijuana were included in the petition to further assert this point. An Iraq-war veteran and a 14-year old epilepsy patient were among them.

According to advocates, decriminalization of marijuana in 33 states and DC, is proof that it must be meeting safety standards.  Supporters for rescheduling have argued that marijuana is considered tolerable and safe by a large number of physicians and legislative bodies.

So far, the DEA has established that cannabis cannot be rescheduled any lower than Schedule 2. This is why the plaintiff of this latest petition against DEA is looking at the Supreme Court as their last resort.

If the case is taken up by the Supreme Court, it can have huge legislative impacts. With this step, improvements in other social discrepancies that give rise to racism can also be expected.
