    Tl:dr The FDA is seeking public comment on the abuse potential, medical usefulness, and impact of schedule changes on 17 substances. CBD (cannabidiol) is included on this list. The deadline to comment is September 13th, 2017 11:59PM ET.

    :star::star::star::star::star:

    From the www.regulations.gov website:

    Action

    Notice.

    Summary

    The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is requesting interested persons to submit comments concerning abuse potential, actual abuse, medical usefulness, trafficking, and impact of scheduling changes on availability for medical use of 17 drug substances. These comments will be considered in preparing a response from the United States to the World Health Organization (WHO) regarding the abuse liability and diversion of these drugs. WHO will use this information to consider whether to recommend that certain international restrictions be placed on these drugs. This notice requesting comments is required by the Controlled Substances Act (the CSA).

    Dates

    Submit either electronic or written comments by September 13, 2017.

    @IThinkImTurningJapanese Thank you for clarifying. I thought you were being serious but wanted to make sure!

    I totally agree with you. It's nice to see such well thought out, supportive comments on this issue. I don't get great benefit from CBD but I fully support it's use for those who do.

    You're welcome for posting. I'm glad people are reading the thread! :D
