As Marijuana Moment first reported last week, the Trump administration is asking Americans for input on whether marijuana should be reclassified under international law.

On Monday, the Food and Drug Administration officially began accepting online commentsabout the topic.

Feds Want Input On Marijuana Reclassification

Here’s what you need to know:

Currently, under both American law and global drug treaties to which the U.S. is a party, marijuana sits in the most restrictive category of Schedule I. Here at home, that means cannabis is not available for formal prescriptions and research on its effects is significantly restricted. Internationally, it means that countries signed onto drug treaties are not supposed to legalize cannabis.

But the United Nations World Health Organization is now beginning its first-ever review of marijuana’s classification, and is inviting input from member nations like the U.S.

And the Trump administration is accepting public comments that it will use to inform the the U.S.’s position on the issue before it weighs in on the global scheduling process.
