Marijuana

Background info

At the start of 2020, recreational marijuana is legal in 11 states for adults 21+, and legal for medical use in 33 states.

However, federal law, which supersedes state law, says that the sale, cultivation, and use of cannabis for any reason is illegal.

Business Insider

Marijuana is a Schedule 1 drug, indicating it is considered more dangerous than Schedule 2 cocaine and meth.

This classification means the government sees no medical value and high abuse potential. To date, no deaths have been tied directly to the use of marijuana.
