Jan. 22, 2013 – US Appeals Court Denies Medical Marijuana Reclassification Challenge

“The United States Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit issued a ruling today [Jan. 22, 2013] in the medical marijuana reclassification case, Americans for Safe Access v. Drug Enforcement Administration. In a 2-1 decision, the Court granted standing in the case — the right to bring a claim against the federal government — but denied the legal challenge on the merits, agreeing with the government’s assertion that ‘adequate and well-controlled studies’ on the medical efficacy of marijuana do not exist.”
