Isakson’s High-Minded Pot Rescheduling Idea

From Allen Peake’s Twitter feed, we learned that Sen. Johnny Isakson says marijuana “ought to be rescheduled.”

Currently, marijuana is a Schedule 1 drug, meaning the DEA believes pot is more dangerous than oxycodone and cocaine (a patently risible position).

There was chatter about marijuana being rescheduled in 2016 but that obviously did not happen.

Words are a decent start, but where is the legislation?

Even before legislation he could lobby his pal Jeff Sessions.

Updated to clarify that Isakson supports rescheduling cannibis oil only. Thanks for your brave stand, Senator.
