How the US Gov is peeping Cannabis' Health Perks? Check Your Insta and FB, Fo' Real!Yo yo yo, what’s good my brothers and sisters in the cannabis community? It’s your boy Dan coming at you with some wild news straight from the FDA. So, check it, the FDA just dropped a bomb on us all with their latest report on marijuana rescheduling. And get this, they’re saying that your social media posts about weed could be the deciding factor in whether or not they move forward with the rescheduling process. Crazy, right?

So, here’s the deal. The FDA has been doing some serious scientific research on marijuana, digging deep into all the data to figure out if they should change the classification of weed. And get this, they’ve been peeping all our social media posts to see how we feel about the therapeutic benefits of cannabis. Talk about Big Brother watching, am I right?

Now, I know what you’re thinking. How the heck did we get here? Well, let me break it down for you. The FDA’s Center for Drug Evaluation and Research (CDER) dropped a bomb with their Drug Safety Priorities report for 2023. And guess what? They’ve been studying cannabis since 2022, all because President Biden gave them the green light.

After doing an Eight-factor analysis (8FA) and reviewing a ton of data sources, the FDA recommended to the DEA that marijuana be moved from Schedule I to Schedule III under the Controlled Substances Act. But hold up, it ain’t over yet. The DEA still needs to do their own review before making a final decision.

Now, here’s where things get really interesting. The FDA didn’t just stop at science and data analysis. Oh no, they also brought in a team of social scientists to comb through our social media posts about weed. They spent six months digging through hundreds of posts to see how we feel about the therapeutic effects of cannabis for stuff like anxiety, pain, and nausea.

But wait, there’s more. The FDA also looked into how well they can monitor the safety of unapproved cannabis products using various data sources. So yeah, they’re going all out to make sure they get this rescheduling thing right.

But hold up, ain’t nothing ever easy when it comes to weed. There’s been hella delays in making a final decision on rescheduling. Congressional figures like Rep. Earl Blumenauer have been putting pressure on the DEA to speed things up and be transparent about their process.

On one side, you got folks like Senators Elizabeth Warren and Chuck Schumer pushing hard for not just rescheduling weed, but removing it entirely from the Controlled Substances Act. But then you got Republican congressmen and former DEA chiefs saying nah, weed should stay right where it is.

And let’s not forget about President Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris getting in on the action too. Biden has been flexing his scheduling directive muscles and handing out pardons left and right for folks caught with weed. And Kamala’s office is making sure those pardons go through smoothly.

At the end of the day, it’s clear that the FDA’s research into cannabis and our social media habits is playing a big role in shaping how things play out with marijuana policy reform. But with so many different opinions and political pressures at play, who knows how this whole thing will shake out.
