New DEA rule on extracts, CBD causes commotion in cannabis industry

Category: News | Posted on Mon, December, 19th 2016 by THCFinder

A little three-page document published this week in the U.S. Federal Register sent some fairly big shock waves through the cannabis industry.

The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration filed a final rule notice to establish a Controlled Substances Code Number for “marihuana extract,” and subsequently maintaining marijuana, hemp and their derivatives as Schedule I substances. According to the notice:

This code number will allow DEA and DEA-registered entities to track quantities of this material separately from quantities of marihuana. This, in turn, will aid in complying with relevant treaty provisions.

The filing published Wednesday goes on to state that a new code number is needed because the United Nations Conventions on international drug control treats cannabis plant extracts differently than marijuana or tetrahydrocannabinols (THC). The rule is expected to take effect Jan. 13, 2017.

Other publicized findings include increases in the availability and use of methamphetamine and cocaine.

However, given the sweeping nature of marijuana law legalization and reform across the nation, it is the DEA’s assessment of marijuana that remains one of the most interesting aspects of this report.

Former DEA ‘Propagandist’ Says Agency Knows Marijuana Is Safe

Category: News | Posted on Mon, December, 19th 2016 by THCFinder

Zealots, hired guns, good Germans—call them what you will, but it would be hard to call the men and women of the Drug Enforcement Administration dummies.

The DEA does not hire just anyone; its agents are the out-performers and overachievers among law enforcement—maybe not quite FBI or CIA material, but still head-and-shoulders above the cops spending careers doing traffic stops in small towns.

All this to say, the DEA is aware of science and it is aware of data. It cannot preach ignorance. But it has a job to do in regard to enforcing federal marijuana law—which is why the DEA knowingly and willingly lies about the (lack of) harm posed by the drug, according to a former woman who cops to spreading misinformation for the agency’s benefit.
