How marijuana's reclassification could change drug policy

Season 2024 Episode 150 | 5m 35s

This month, President Biden announced the Justice Department is planning a shift in the federal approach to marijuana, reclassifying it from a Schedule I drug to Schedule III. This would put it in the same category as Tylenol and ketamine. It would classify it as a drug that has the potential for abuse but has medicinal benefits. Amna Nawaz discussed more with Natalie Fertig of Politico.
