Supreme Court declines to hear marijuana case challenging DEA’s restrictive classification

DEA has on numerous past occasions denied petitions to change marijuana’s status under the CSA [Controlled Substances Act].

The plaintiffs initially filed that lawsuit against the federal agency in May [2020], contending that DEA’s justification for maintaining a Schedule I status for cannabis is unconstitutional. DEA attempted to quash the case by filing a motion to dismiss… Separately, a federal court recently ruled that California regulators must comply with a DEA subpoena demanding information about marijuana businesses that they are investigating… The U.S. Supreme Court announced on Tuesday [10/13/20] that it will not hear a case challenging the constitutionality of federal marijuana prohibition… That’s not especially surprising given the small percentage of cases that the high court accepts, but it’s a major setback for the activists nonetheless.
