HHS Recommends DEA Ease Restrictions on Marijuana, Potentially Legalizing it at the Federal Level

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has recommended that the Drug Enforcement Administration reclassify marijuana as a Schedule III drug, allowing for more research and potential medical use. This recommendation comes 11 months after President Joe Biden ordered the top health agency to conduct a review of the drug. Currently, the DEA has not yet made a decision on the recommendation, but if accepted, it would be a major step forward in the effort to legalize marijuana at the federal level.
