SFWJ/MedCana Reacts to US DEA's Rescheduling of Marijuana

AUSTIN, Texas, May 01, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via IBN -- SFWJ, doing business as MedCana, a holding company focused in the cannabis and agricultural technology sectors, joins the cannabis industry in acknowledging a historic milestone as the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) moves to reclassify cannabis from Schedule I to Schedule III under the Controlled Substances Act (CSA). This monumental decision, based on recommendations from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, signifies a significant shift in U.S. drug policy initiated by President Biden's directive in October 2022.

For over four decades, cannabis has been unjustly categorized as a Schedule I substance alongside heroin and LSD, despite its recognized medical benefits and low potential for abuse. The DEA's move to reschedule cannabis acknowledges its therapeutic value and aligns with evolving attitudes towards cannabis policy.

CEO of MedCana, Jose Gabriel Diaz, emphasizes the significance of this decision, stating, "The DEA's decision to reclassify cannabis is a watershed moment in our nation's drug policy. It opens the door to further research, innovation, and accessibility, signaling a new era of acceptance and understanding. MedCana is proud to be part of an industry that advocates for sensible cannabis regulation and equitable access to this vital medicine."

As the DEA's proposed rule undergoes public comment, MedCana remains committed to advancing the dialogue around cannabis policy and supporting initiatives that promote responsible use and access to quality cannabis products.
