Despite The Wishes Of Its Promoters And The Voters, The Amma Cannot Change Marijuana’s Classification As A Federally Prohibited Schedule 1 Drug Under The Csa. The County Wants To Prohibit Dispensaries Because They Violate Federal Law, According To New Petition.

Ray Stern It captures the flavor of Montgomery’s personal jihad against legalized marijuana. The argument boils down to the idea that the county has the right to enact reasonable zoning regulations. One of its criteria is that dispensaries must comply with both federal and state law. “The Federal Controlled Substances Act (‘CSA’) expressly prohibits growing, distributing, and possessing marijuana in any capacity, http://michiganmedicalmarijuana.biz/ other than as part of a federally authorized research program,” the petition states. “It is a crime to violate it, regardless of state laws that purport to evade it.

Government entities like the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency don’t recognize any medical use of marijuana, White and Vigil wrote in the petition.
