Open Question: Explaining scheduling of drugs/cannabis?

Can someone please tell me why cannabis is scheduled as a Class I drug and deadly/toxic drug such as meth is class II. Marijuana serves a purpose for the dying, yes it may be abused but no addiction or severe harm equals drugs like meth which are scheduled, and cocaine. Cocaine/meth have recorded deaths, and many addicts. Marijuana user’s are among us all…it may not be good for us all but for most, it causes little if any harm. I believe marijuana should be decriminalized and available for use among the sick and medical patients that need it.

    Its schedule one because in 1937, Harry J. Anslinger demonized a plant that grew wild across this great nation, from sea to shining sea. Schedule I just means it has no medicinal value. Schedule II means that it is used medically. For example: methamphetamine and amphetamine are used to treat ADD/ADHD, narcolepsy, and depression. Cocaine is used medicinally as a topical anesthetic (to numb parts of the body)or in some rare cases, for cancer patients to give them energy, but amphetamine works better as it lasts much longer. Cocaine lasts for about 30-45 min, whereas methamphetamine can last up to 14 hours. According to the federal Government, Marijuana has no medicinal value and it is soooo dangerous that it has to be made illegal for our own protection. Although marijuana is nowhere near as harmful as any of these drugs, it continues to remain Schedule I.
