Marijuana is a popular illicit drug which is affecting most of the population especially teens in United Nations of America. The US Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) announced recently that marijuana has no accepted medical use and told that it should remain illegal under federal act.
Previously there are a lot of controversies regarding the use of medical marijuana. Regardless of conflicting state legislation allowing medical marijuana despite hundreds of studies attesting the drug benefits, DEA has announced it officially.
Even though some scientific data shows the therapeutic benefits of marijuana helps in controlling nausea, vomiting, and appetite stimulation, the harmful chemical called THC present in the smoked marijuana is considered as a harmful substance.
Apart from announcing that the marijuana in US has no currently accepted use in treatment it also told that the drug has high potential for abuse and lacks an acceptable level of safety for use even under medical supervision. This judgment came in response to a 2002 petition by the supporters of medical marijuana who urged to add marijuana in any one of schedule 3,4,5 drug which is treated presently as a Schedule 1 drug. If a drug is placed in schedule 3,4,5 it is like allowing the use of the drug in some common medicines.
The judgment from the DEA is an important advancement in controlling drugs even though it is something like a setback for medical marijuana advocates. However, any thing which happens for the well being of the society should be appreciate.
