>>5751>marijuana isn't even a narcotic
I heard a police officer refer to marijuana as a narcotic. I see, perhaps that is not the view of most, even this DEA document places it in its own category (https://www.dea.gov/sites/default/files/drug_of_abuse.pdf
). So I am corrected.>the harm from using marijuana is on par with alcohol and tobacco
Not to the federal government, I don't think. The CSA exempts alcohol to allow legitimate commerce, which there is none for a Schedule 1 substance. I assume we are to understand the most dangerous substances are the most controlled. I do understand many doctors disagree. But I'm not a doctor nor a federal government, so I guess I can just seek to understand the points of view.>the states cannot be compelled to enforce federal statutes
Hmm, well I guess I might ask, were states compelled to enforce federal regulation?>The opposite is happening.
I see. Well, I suppose it'd not be welcomed for me to suggest the federal government should change their laws about this...substance, to be more consistent with other laws. Sometimes consistency is good, though.
