The most important trial in the legalization of cannabis is set to begin. A collection of cannabis advocates, that includes a former NFL player, a U.S. war veteran that suffers from PTSD, a non-profit cannabis organization, and a 12-year-old year that suffers from epileptic seizures, are suing the DEA and Attorney General Jeff Sessions over the misclassification of cannabis as a Schedule 1 drugs.
Under U.S. law, Schedule 1 drugs are considered to have a high potential for abuse, no medical use in treatment and contains no further possibilities for medical testing. Drugs included in the same classification of the cannabis plant is heroin, ecstasy, and LSD.
Plaintiffs in the case are asking the courts to place a permanent injunction on any enforcement of the Controlled Substance Act in regard to the cannabis plant.
