It was only a few months ago that the Drug Enforcement Administration made their decision, once again, to deny petitions to reschedule cannabis in the Controlled Substances Act. However, in an official DEA document titled “Denial of Petition to Initiate Proceedings to Reschedule Marijuana”, they made statements for the first time which actually contradict their fear mongering of the past, including: “At present, the available data do not suggest a causative link between marijuana use and the development of psychosis” and “Numerous large, longitudinal studies show that subjects who used marijuana do not have a greater incidence of psychotic diagnoses compared to those who do not use marijuana.”
