Marijuana No Longer Considered a Dangerous Drug by AMA

The American Medical Association has changed its policy on marijuana. The association wants the U.S. government to remove pot’s classification as a dangerous drug to one with possible benefits. Right now, the federal government classifies marijuana as a Schedule I controlled drug, which has no medical benefit.

Thirteen states have approved the use of medical marijuana. The government has recently ordered its narcotics agents not to arrest medical pot users and sellers in these states, even though pot is still illegal on the federal level.

In Florida, you can still be arrested for possessing, selling, and trafficking in pot.
