American Medical Association calls for a review of cannabis scheduling

The American Medical Association has changed its official position on medical cannabis.  The largest doctors organization in America is now calling for a review of cannabis as a schedule one substance.  Schedule one substances are reserved only for the most dangerous and addictive substances with no accepted medical use.  Currently, 14 states legally protects patients who use cannabis with their doctor’s recommendation.  Illinois is not one of them but hopefully lawmakers will see this as yet another indication that cannabis is a medicine and sick people are not criminals.
