Eric Holder has recently announced that he is resigning his position as Attorney General. Around that time the Justice Department leader told Katie Couric,
"I think it's certainly a question we need to ask ourselves, whether or not marijuana is as serious of a drug as heroin, especially given what we've seen recently with regard to heroin -- the progression of people from using opioids to heroin use, the spread and the destruction that heroin has perpetrated all around our country. And to see by contrast, what the impact is of marijuana use. Now it can be destructive if used in certain ways, but the question of whether or not they should be in the same category is something that we need to ask ourselves and use science as the basis for making that determination."
The Parents Coalition for Rescheduling Medical Cannabis invites all advocates to call and write the Attorney General's office on September 30th 2014 asking him to remove cannabis from Schedule 1 before he leaves office.
