Shafer Commissions’ Redemption

In an act to repel the current marijuana laws that are in placed prohibiting states to claim individual practices to influence a regulated taxable medicinal program, there has been a critical point that has been over looked by the federal government which my just validate the drastic push by numerous states as of now to not only decriminalize marijuana but legalize it. As reform is considered, the Controlled substance act which schedules those controlled substances to be examined and given a classification has determined that marijuana be decriminalized in small amounts in the early 70’s under the assumption of the Comprehensive Drug Abuse Prevention and Control Act of 1970 established the National Commission on Marijuana and Drug Abuse—known as the Shafer Commission after its chairman, Raymond P. Shafer—to study marijuana abuse in the United States.

Even though we are seeing big gains as of now with Hawaii passing a bill within the Senate last year which would decriminalization marijuana which caused the governor to becoming hostile, or for instance within the state of California, Rep. Tom Ammiano (D-San Francisco) is not reintroducing his legalization bill (ASSEMBLY BILL No. 390), but has introduced Assembly Bill 1017, which would keep marijuana growers out of prison by reducing the offense from a felony to a misdemeanor. These are the exact advances that are to be considered as a conclusion of the referral to decriminalize marijuana due to it harsh and excessive efforts to discourage use and possession.

Are the efforts over-due knowing that Shafer as stated that “The actual and potential harm of use of the drug is not great enough to justify intrusion by the criminal law into private behavior, a step which our society takes only ‘with the greatest reluctance” was part of an omnibus reform package designed to rationalize, and in some respects to liberalize, American drug policy?

Since the actual prohibition act the was enacted in 1937 which contributed to the drug testing policies to track marijuana usage, but also stated that the Act did not itself criminalize the possession or usage of hemp, marijuana, or cannabis however it did include a penalty and enforcement provisions to which marijuana, cannabis, or hemp handlers were subject. A violation of these procedures could result in a fine of up to $2000 and five years’ imprisonment. It would be increases in the amount of those in possession and the younger attraction of smokers that brought forth an enforcement act that would further criminalize all those in possession, cultivators, and dealers alike as threats to society and the greater good.

Vital points when the reformation of individual state policies are considered when reflected against the federal assumption of how marijuana is viewed and classified and a scheduled drug with abusive qualities and damaging characteristics associated with the over-all usage rather medicinal or as a social common. Since the actual criminalization of the drug there has been no valid observation of the drug that would consider that marijuana be deemed a harmful and dangerous substance.
