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.
[Your Name Here]
