It doesn’t come as a surprise to most people that the classification of medical marijuana is controlled for political reasons, however it is still nice to be told the truth. Attorney General Eric Holder basically admitted that the Obama administration is letting politics overrule science  when it comes to federal classification of medical marijuana.

Despite earlier statements from Obama and Holder who claimed to be powerless over the issue without congress, The Controlled Substance Act states that the “Attorney General may by rule…remove any drug or other substance from the schedules if he finds that the drug or other substance does not meet the requirements for inclusion in any schedule.”

Holder has the power to reschedule marijuana but isn’t using it: he is holding out for political reasons, waiting to see how much support congress will give him. In a statement he said “When it comes to rescheduling, I think this is something that should come from Congress…I think I’d want to hear, get a sense from them about where they’d like to be.”
