Supreme Court Urged to Hear Case Against DEA by Activists
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 tweeted “This 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.
5 Cannabis Companies That Were Launched By Celebrities
Recreational cannabis always seemed an unattainable goal. It seemed near impossible, in a world ruled by conservative, Judeo-Christan morals, that countries would wholeheartedly legalize it. Indeed, in most parts of the world, even possession of cannabis can be a serious legal offense. However, if this is the case, then consider the future to have arrived. Many regions in the west, such as Canada and an increasing number of US states, are now legalizing it.
It must still be noted that cannabis legalization in the US is a complicated affair. It is mainly banned in conservative states (click here to read about Texas’s tacky hemp regulations) and is still a topic of contention elsewhere. That said, most of the retailers we have linked below will be restricted to only a select few markets where cannabis is legal. Colorado, California, and Washington are thus US state that we include. And don’t forget Canada, of course, where it has been legal for some time now.
Even major celebrities have invested in recreational cannabis
That’s why several mainstream celebrities and big names are opening up shop in the weed business. These famous people are setting trends for fans and customers alike to adore. With all kinds of innovative ideas, these noteworthy people will set a lasting example of why recreational cannabis is so popular.
‘Leafs By Snoop’, by Snoop Dog
The popular rapper has moved his product onto shelves across Canada and the northern US. Leafs By Snoop is already an instant hit in Colorado and Washington. Recently, Snoop Dog’s brand has also collaborated with Tweed by Canopy Growth.
‘Willie’s Reserve’ by Willie Nelson
A county singer and longtime marijuana activist, Nelson’s brand is also fast-growing. He’s already well-established in Colorado and Washington and plans to expand further. Willie’s Reserve may also soon be taking root in Canada too, so stay tuned.
‘Chong’s Choice’ by Tommy Chong
Tommy Chong has been a longtime cannabis advocate. The actor-comedian, when he’s not busy writing his next script, is dedicated to quickly expanding his business across America. His products are available across 6 different states already!
‘Dr. Greenthumb’ by B Real
Rapper B Real, best known for his stint with Cypress Hill, had launched his venture a few years back. This cannabis company is available in 5 retail outlets across California.
‘Khalifa Khush Enterprise Oil’ by Wiz Khalifa
Wiz Khalifa has always been the kaiser of cannabis. This rapper has been an outspoken advocate and consumer of cannabis for years, even when it wasn’t socially acceptable. He unabashedly launched his recreational cannabis oil company in Colorado in 2016 and in 2019 was able to expand to Canada.
Other celebrities have dabbled in other avenues of cannabis
While we have just covered the cannabis product aspect, there is more to examine. While the 5 celebrities mentioned above deal mainly with the consumables (smokable, edible, inhalable, or topical) others bear mentioning too. Iron Mike Tyson, the former world heavyweight champion, has recently partnered his ranch with a cannabinoid beverage company. Meanwhile, comedians and actors Seth Rogan and Evan Goldberg, have also launched ‘Houseplant‘, another cannabis venture.
All in all, it is fair to say that while big-name, wealthy investors like these open up their own cannabis companies, the average person can still enjoy the benefits too. With such a wide variety of goods from likable figures, cannabis enthusiasts of all shades can sit back and relax.
