It is time to reclassify marijuana

Recent voting in Colorado and Washington exposes a striking discrepancy in the national legal status of marijuana. Under current federal law, marijuana is classified as a Schedule I Controlled Substance, which places it in the same category as heroin, peyote, LSD and Ecstasy. To be qualified as a Schedule I Controlled Substance, a drug must have no currently accepted medical use in the United States, a lack of accepted safety for use under medical supervision, and a high potential for abuse.
The clause regarding medical benefits should immediately eliminate cannabis from this schedule, because numerous studies have proven its medical effectiveness, from glaucoma to pain relief to hunger stimulation during chemotherapy and in AIDS patients. For these precise reasons, 18 states and the District of Columbia have legalized the use of medical marijuana: It is a viable alternative to prescription medication that can often cause side effects more detrimental than the illness they are treating. For federal law to say that cannabis has no accepted medical use is to contradict the work of many doctors, studies and the actions of many state legislatures.
As for the second clause, it is surprising that a substance commonly used without medical supervision and that has reported zero deaths under current records would be deemed unsafe when used by patients under the care of a physician. Many of the drugs classified alongside marijuana would prove to be dangerous even with such care. It borders on absurd to say that a person using cannabis is at the same risk of dying as a person injecting heroin or using methamphetamines. No side effects of marijuana suggest a person is fatally at risk while using it.

10 pounds of marijuana delivered to Seattle Kmart

Maybe they should make this one a Green Light Special.
A 10-pound bag of marijuana that took a wrong turn on a cross-country shipment was delivered to surprised employees at the Seattle Kmart, police said.
Shortly after noon Monday, 911 dispatchers received a call from a staff member saying they'd received the massive shipment of pot packed in garbage bags, foam peanuts and cleaning-fluid-soaked pages from a Korean newspaper, department spokesman Jonah Spagenthal-Lee said.
"Delivery information on the package indicates it was originally shipped from Los Angeles to a Philadelphia address, but never made it to its intended destination in Philly," he said. "Whoever sent the package listed the address of the Seattle Kmart on the return label, for some reason."
Seattle police placed the pot into evidence.
The package was beleived to have been sent by UPS. Company spokespeople were not immediately available for comment.
Had the shippers waited just a few weeks longer, the delivery might have been returned to sender. The Kmart store in North Seattle where it was delivered – a fixture at 13200 Aurora Ave. N. since the 1970s – is scheduled to close Sunday. Click here to read more about the North Seattle Kmart store.
