    The cradle of civil rights embraces marijuana decriminalization.

    On Monday night, the Atlanta City Council voted unanimously to decriminalize marijuana. Gratified by the 15-0 vote, Mayor Kasim Reed fired off an encouraging tweet. Noting his intention to review and sign the legislation, the mayor thanked two specific councilmembers for their “leadership on marijuana reform.”

    Meanwhile, back at the DEA.
    I hear a rumor that the DEA has named CBD extract as schedule 1!!
    Might be bullshit, as that is not the DEAs job.

    OK. Just did some research.
    This is not good!

    " Nor would such a product be included under drug code 7370 (tetrahydrocannabinols). See Hemp Industries Association v. DEA, 357 F.3d 1012 (9th Cir. 2004) (Hemp II). However, as the Ninth Circuit stated in Hemp II, "when Congress excluded from the definition of marijuana 'mature stalks of such plant, fiber . . . , [and] oil or cake made from the seeds,' it also made an exception to the exception, and included 'resin extracted from' the excepted parts of the plant in the definition of marijuana, despite the stalks and seed exception." Id. at 1018. Thus, if an extract of cannabinoids were produced using extracted resin from any part of the cannabis plant (including the parts excluded from the CSA definition of marijuana), such an extract would be included in the CSA definition of marijuana."

    Tonto, I see big trouble a brewin'.
