MARIJUANA, CRIM JUSTICE NEED REEXAMINATION, SURGEON GENERAL SAYS

U.S. Surgeon General Jerome Adams on Thursday suggested a reexamination of criminal justice and health policies, including the scheduling system used to classify different types of drugs.

"Just as we need to look at criminal justice laws, rules and regulations, we need to look at health laws, rules and regulations, and that includes the scheduling system," Adams said during a question-and-answer session Thursday with attendees at a Police Assisted Addiction Recovery Initiative conference. "I'll take it somewhere else, marijuana. We need to look at the way we schedule different medications across the board, because one of the concerns that I have with marijuana is the difficulty that the folks have to do research on it, because of the scheduling system."
