Demand Recognition of Cannabis Extract’s Medical Benefits

Target: Chuck Rosenberg, Acting Administrator of the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency

Goal: Remove coding from legislation that places CDB oil on the Schedule 1 list of uncontrolled substances.

Cannabidiol, a non-psychoactive compound found in cannabis which is mostly known for helping children with unexplained, chronic seizures and other developmental disorders, has been classified as a narcotic by the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA). Language that outlined cannabidiol (CBD) oil as a Schedule 1 substance was published by the DEA, and cannabis organizations are retaliating. With the help of Hoban Law Group, three companies are suing the DEA for overstepping its authority, claiming that only Congress can create these statutes.

Those who severely need these products as well as those who manufacture them will likely suffer heavily due to this new legislative code. Just as American citizens did when the DEA tried to control kratom, they can tell Chuck Rosenberg they don’t agree with this new policy. Sign this petition to demand that CBD and other cannabis extracts be removed from Schedule 1 classification.


Dear. Mr. Rosenberg,

I am writing concerning your decision to place cannabis extracts on the list of Schedule 1 substances. Extracts like CBD oil are non-psychoactive, meaning they do not alter a person’s state of conscience. The medication is most widely known for decreasing or eliminating chronic seizures in children. Its medical benefits are vast, and the Unites States has patents that prove it.

Classifying CBD as a Schedule 1 substance could be dangerous for people’s health and for the health of the industry that produces it. As a government agency, the DEA’s job is to serve the American people, and the people want cannabis. I demand that your offices remove language from the law that makes CBD a Schedule 1 substance.

    The DEA’s actions are nonsensical, and make me wonder about their motivation for preventing people from receiving health benefits from this drug.

  2. If in any way AT ALL pot helps children with seizures, HELL YES it should be legal. Obviously the ones stopping it don’t have seizures or children that have them, because if they did they would do anything to stop these horrible, horrible heartbreaking events. But… for me it was pot that caused me to have two grand mal seizures, different types of seizures, different regions of the brain affected I guess. I had brain surgery for mine and THANK YOU GOD, I still have seizures but they are so minor compared to what I used to have. I still don’t smoke pot- never would I take that chance again. I’m not a doctor so of course I don’t know who could do it and who couldn’t- but for those who could stop having seizures because of it? Like I said, oh hell yes.

      Never knew that pot could cause seizures. That’s a serious side effect! Pot can also cause other health problems, one being depersonalization disorder which can also seriously and permanently adversely affect your life. Everybody is different and reacts differently to each drug. We need to educate ourselves about any drug before taking it. But even then we don’t know how our body is going to react to it, till we take it.
