42 Wash. lawmakers ask DEA to reclassify marijuana
OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) - More than three dozen Washington state
lawmakers are asking the federal government to reclassify
IN a letter to the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration on
Monday, the lawmakers said they supported Gov. Chris Gregoire's
previous request on the issue. Reclassifying marijuana as a
Schedule II drug would allow it to be prescribed by doctors and
handled by pharmacists.
Seven Republican lawmakers are among the 42 who have signed on
to the letter.
