A Federal Court ruled today that they were not going to order reclassification of Marijuana from its current Class-1 status. The classification decision is handled by the DEA, not the courts, and the court can only overturn that decision if it is “arbitrary and capricious”. That’s a very low standard for the government, the basically only have to show some reasonable facts to support their decision: the decision does not have to be correct.
