Senate Bill 1182Ask:Legislation to allow physicians in Pennsylvania to recommend medicinal cannabis topatients who would medically benefit from such a treatmentUntil its prohibition in 1937, extract of Cannabis sativa (marijuana) was one of the top three most prescribed medicines in the US. When it became illegal, its use as a medicine became restricted. Despite these regulations, research on the medical use of marijuana continued (Learn Genetics Utah). In 1970, Congress classified cannabis and THC (one of the active compounds in cannabis) as Schedule I drugs under the Controlled Substances Act. Schedule I drugs are defined by Congress as having no medicinal value. The one exception to this classification allows for use in FDA-approved research programs (Learn Genetics Utah).
