Legislation Milestone: The Cannabis Rescheduling Debate Might Impact Brands
The shifting perception of cannabis in the United States is witnessing a significant turning point.
Once stigmatized as a Schedule I drug, might be on the verge of being reclassified to a potentially more accepted Schedule III status by the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS). This reclassification would signify not only an acknowledgment of cannabis's medicinal benefits but also its distinction from other substances.
