Marijuana Laws
At the federal level, marijuana remains classified as a Schedule I substance under the Controlled Substances Act, where Schedule I substances are considered to have a high potential for dependency and no accepted medical use, making distribution of marijuana a federal offense. However several states have passed laws legalizing medicinal and recreational marijuana.
