Exhibit A. The proposed rules for repeal, in the form proposed by the petitioner:
The rules placing marihuana in schedule I [21 CFR 1308.11(d)(17)], tetrahydrocannabinols in schedule I [21 CFR 1308.11(d)(25)], Dronabinol in schedule II [21 CFR 1308.12(f)(1)] and Nabilone in schedule II [21 CFR 1308.12(f)(2)] are repealed because there is no scientific evidence that they have sufficient abuse potential to warrant schedule I or II status under the Controlled Substances Act.
This is not necessarily a petition for the removal of the listed drugs and substances from scheduling under the CSA, but a petition to have them removed from schedules I and II.
Should the Department of Health and Human Services confirm the scientific and medical basis for this petition, a consideration of the appropriate scheduling of marijuana should be made at that time, on the basis of the HHS evaluation and in accordance with existing law.
