The original post of this story appears below.


 

On Oct. 16, 2012, the Court of Appeals in Washington DC began hearing oral arguments in the landmark case, Americans for Safe Access v Drug Enforcement Administration. The plaintiffs in this case argued that the DEA acted irrationally in ruling that cannabis belongs in Schedule I of the Controlled Substances Act and that this scheduling of marijuana has harmed medical marijuana patients physically and financially. On behalf of Americans for Safe Access, Attorney Joseph Elford asked the court to force the DEA to reconsider its classification of cannabis as a dangerous drug without therapeutic benefits, arguing that the agency ignored 200 well-controlled studies which show cannabis has legitimate medical uses. On Tues., Jan. 22, 2013 the court issued its ruling on the case.

Use the player below to hear the outcome of that ruling and an interview with Chris Hermes from Americans for Safe Access.This story was aired by KMUD News Coordinator, Terri Klemetson, on Wed., Jan 23, 2013.
