The federal Controlled Substances Act bans any drug as Schedule I that:
- Has high potential for abuse.
- Has no currently accepted medical use in treatment in the United States.
- Lack of accepted safety for use of the drug or other substance under medical supervision.
We endorse legislating these separately so therapeutic hemp can become available as a nutritional supplement shippable across state lines without a doctor's order. Without separate bills high CBD strains would remain controlled substances, a restriction their plant genetics do not warrant by federal definition.
