BREAKING – The Democratic party has just announced that it was endorsing the future legalization of Marijuana by making an update to The Controlled Substances Act. The amendment now reads:

“Because of conflicting laws concerning marijuana, both on the federal and state levels, we encourage the federal government to remove marijuana from its list as a Class 1 Federal Controlled Substance, providing a reasoned pathway for future legalization.”

Democratsand marijuanaThe amendment was adopted by the party’s platform drafting committee after an 81-80 vote this past weekend. It is apparent that the Democratic party’s idea is to let the states lead the way towards marijuana legalization.

Class 1 Federal Controlled Substances are defined as drugs with no currently accepted medical use and a high potential for abuse. Removing it from this list would open it up for more medical research and it would no longer be classified with other controlled substances such as heroin, LSD, and ecstasy.

Marijuana By State

The Democratic Party now has marijuana legalization as part of its platform and it is a big victory for pro-legalization advocates and supporters.
