Scientists and veterans file lawsuit challenging DEA’s marijuana rescheduling denials

The Scottsdale Research Institute (SRI) filed suit… in the U.S. Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, asking for a review of DEA’s scheduling determinations in 2020, 2016 and 1992… they… argue that another statutory policy DEA says necessitates marijuana being strictly controlled is unconstitutional.

In terms of valid therapeutic value, the agency (DEA) has said there are five criteria that a substance must meet, including the reproducibility of the drug, the existence of controlled studies establishing safety and efficacy and “whether the drug is not accepted by qualified experts.” Lawyers representing SRI argued in a filing that the test “has no basis in the statute, is contrary to the statutory text, structure, history, and purpose, departs from the original understanding of the statute and rests on flawed and outdated case law.”
