scheduled drugs

Discussion in 'Pandora's Box' started by negligent, Aug 4, 2008.

  1. y's it like you get in worse trouble for some drugs more than others, i wonder if back in the prohibition u got in more trouble for moonshine then you did beer, its sorta the same concept, though not really i guess since drug effects vary alot from drug to drug
  2. i dont get why cocaine and meth are schedule 2 and lsd, mdma, mushrooms, and mary jane are schedule 1!
  3. cause the US gov is a joke when it comes to drugs...the war on drugs is a joke.
    they make ridiculous laws and we deal with it
    there is no reason behind it, thats just the way it is. U.S gov't making coke sched 2 and mary jane sched 1...doesnt suprise me in the least
  4. ur gonna get in a hell of alot less trouble for an oz of weed than for an oz of coke/crack regardless of where its at on the schedule
  5. word.
  6. fuck the dea and the president that created it BITCH
  7. you guys are fucking retarded if you think coke and meth should be considered the same as nugs and shrooms
  8. you don't understand anything about scheduled drugs, do you?
  9. no you didn't get in more trouble in prohibiton for moonshine than beer. they both contain alcohol and that was what was illegal. you got in more trouble for the quantity. at least thats what i remember from the history channel

    drugs in different scheduals don't contain the same chemicals, they're all different. beer and liquor do.
  10. The drugs that make you realize you are being fucked over on a daily basis are the ones the government doesn't want you to take, so they criminalize them to the point where if you get caught you get some jail time.
  11. the reason why coke is scheduled is because it still has some use in the field of medicne. cocaine was first used as a topical anesethic until the 1960s. then it was replaced by novacane. the only thing cocaine is used by now is eye doctors
  12. Actually marijuana was only placed in Schedule I temporarily while the government finished a study to determine which schedule to place it permanently.

    That study was called the National Commission on Marijuana and Drug Abuse, also known as the "Shafer Commission".

    The study determined that marijuana should be decriminalized. At this point marijuana should have been taken out of Schedule I but the finding didn't suit the political requirements of President Nixon who wanted a report which supported his views and "tough on crime" policies. The report was therefore ignored and marijuana stayed in Schedule I.

    Sixteen years later, after two years of public hearings "involving many witnesses and thousands of pages of documentation", DEA Chief Administrative Law Judge Francis L. Young ruled that marijuana did not meet the legal criteria of a Schedule I prohibited drug and should be reclassified. He declared that "In strict medical terms marijuana is far safer than many foods we commonly consume. It is physically impossible to eat enough marijuana to induce death. Marijuana, in its natural form, is one of the safest therapeutically active substances known to man.".

    Instead of Judge Young's decision leading to the rescheduling of marijuna in 1986, DEA Administrator John Lawn overruled Young's determination

    In the years since the Shafer Commissions report was released, researchers have conducted thousands of studies of humans, animals, and cell cultures. None reveal any findings dramatically different from those described by the National Commission in 1972.

    So, that's why marijuana is classified in the same schedule as heroin and why we currently have a prohibition that costs $40 billion a year and is responsible for 2,000 marijuana-related arrests every day. What a joke! :mad:
  13. Dropping knowledge..
