La DEA mantiene a la marihuana en la lista de sustancias controladas

deaweb

A pesar del creciente movimiento para legalizar el uso de la marihuana en todo el país, la Administración para el Control de Drogas de  EE.UU. (DEA) la mantendrá en su lista de sustancias controladas.
La marihuana medicinal es legal en 25 estados, el uso de la marihuana recreativa está permitido en Colorado, Oregon, Washington D.C. y Alaska. Sin embargo, de acuerdo con un reciente informe, la DEA decidió mantenerla en su lista de sustancias controladas, debido a que provoca un “alto potencial de abuso». Bajo la Ley de Sustancias Controladas, seguirá siendo considerada una droga de Clase 1.
“Esta decisión no está basada en el peligro,” Chuck Rosenberg, jefe de la DEA, dijo a la National Public Radio, “Esta decisión se basa en si la marihuana es un medicamento seguro y eficaz y según lo determinado por la FDA (Administración de Alimentos y Medicamentos) no lo es”.
La decisión de la DEA ha atraído el apoyo de los residentes del área como Andrea Martínez, quien lo considera “una buena idea”.
“Entiendo que tiene algunas ventajas, pero también creo que es algo que afecta a nuestra sociedad y que debería estar bajo control”, dijo Martínez, residente de Kansas City, Mo.

DEA keeps marijuana on controlled substance list

By Chara
Despite the growing movement to legalize all uses of marijuana nationwide, the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) is keeping it on its list of controlled substances.
Medical marijuana is legal in 25 states. Recreational marijuana usage is allowed in Colorado, Oregon, Washington, the District of Columbia and Alaska. However, according to a recent news report, the DEA decided to keep it on its list of controlled substances because of the “potential abuse” it promotes. Under the Controlled Substances Act, it’ll remain a Schedule 1 drug.
“This decision isn’t based on danger,” Chuck Rosenberg, DEA chief, told National Public Radio. “This decision is based on whether marijuana, as determined by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration), is a safe and effective medicine. And it is not.”
The DEA’s decision has drawn support from such area residents as Andrea Martinez, who called it “a good idea.”
“I understand that it has some benefits, but I also think it is something that affects our society and it should be under control,” said Martinez, a Kansas City, Mo., resident.
