Cannabis is currently considered a Schedule 1 drug under federal law, a classification reserved for drugs considered to have no medical value. So, if any rescheduling is to happen, it can only get better.
According to the document obtained by Marijuana.com:
"DEA recently received the [Department of Health and Human Services] scientific and medical evaluations as well as a scheduling recommendation that HHS prepared in response to" two petitions to reschedule cannabis under the federal Controlled Substances Act, Assistant Attorney General Peter J. Kadzik wrote in a September 30 letter to Rep. Earl Blumenauer (D-OR). "DEA is currently reviewing these documents and all other relevant data to make a scheduling determination in accordance with the [Controlled Substances Act]."
