Detroit News takes a clear, powerful stand in favor of legal, regulated cannabis use.
They call for Congress to pass a law allowing state laws to prevail on marijuana use.
And the paper says Congress “should go further and declassify marijuana as a Schedule 1 drug, which places it in the same category as more dangerous narcotics such as heroin and cocaine.”
In addition, they argue for “changes in federal laws to allow those in the marijuana industry access to the banking system and credit markets. If marijuana is to be a legal enterprise, it should be treated as such in all aspects.”
Bravo Detroit News editorial board!
