Adam Eidinger and Nikolas Schiller, who co-founded DC Marijuana Justice (DCMJ) Washington D.C.’s effective cannabis legalization attempt in 2014, are set to meet with an anonymous policy advisor this morning at the White House, the DCMJ announced. The goal is to discuss and come to a conclusion as to why marijuana should not be considered amongst the most dangerous drugs in the world by the federal government. This debate has been becoming more and more heated between legislators, scientists, doctors as well as the public. According to polls, around sixty-one percent of Americans support legalizing cannabis.
“This is an opportunity for the White House to meet with serious and committed cannabis activists and hear our case for why it’s in President Obama’s best interest to work with the attorney general to fully remove cannabis from the Controlled Substances Act, ” DCMJ communications director Schiller said.
The meeting is going to be set to meet at 1:30 p.m. and will likely last about thirty to forty-five minutes; according to sources, this meeting is going to be “groundbreaking.” Members of the group Weed for Warriors, including ex-Paratrooper and Attorney Brandon Wyatt, will be giving interviews at a press conference on Pennsylvania Avenue after the discussion takes place.
Proponents’ efforts seem to be setting in the beltway. Responding to legislators’ inquiries, the Drug Enforcement Administration has stated that it might issue a new recommendation on the scheduling of marijuana as soon as June. Last week, the DEA also approved a rare trail of whole plant marijuana to treat post-traumatic stress disorder. Michael Botticelli, director of the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy, reported to UN Officials last week that “law enforcement efforts should focus on criminal organizations — not on people with substance use disorders who need treatment and recovery support services.”
