USA Federal Judge refuses bid to remove marijuana from Most Dangerous Drug List
    #776102 - 04/15/15 11:02 PM (1 year, 6 months ago)

SAN FRANCISCO — A federal judge in Sacramento, Calif., on Wednesday upheld the constitutionality of a 1970 federal law that classifies marijuana as a dangerous drug akin to LSD and heroin.

U.S. District Judge Kimberly J. Mueller took the extraordinary step of holding a five-day hearing on the question late last year, raising hopes of activists that she might strike down the classification.

The National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws, known as NORML, said Mueller concluded that it was up to Congress to decide the matter.

"We applaud Judge Mueller for having the courage to hear this issue and provide it the careful consideration it deserves," said Paul Armentano, NORML's deputy director. "While we are disappointed with this ruling, it changes little. We always felt this had to ultimately be decided by the 9th Circuit and we have an unprecedented record for the court to consider."

Mueller's examination of marijuana's position on the federal government's list of most dangerous drugs was the first by a judge in decades. It came in response to a pretrial defense motion in a prosecution brought by the federal government against alleged marijuana growers.
