What’s Going On?
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).
How Will This Help?
Like bureaucratic processes, it will not happen immediately, but change will come if YOU make your voice heard on this matter.
When Is The Deadline For Comments?
You must submit either electronic or written comments by September 13, 2017.

IMPORTANT : Please Read Before Commenting
CBD has been consumed in many ways for a long time. With this request, the FDA is requesting comments on how to classify CBD, but has done it in a way that makes it seem as if CBD is bad for the human body.
The FDA has has lumped CBD in with opiods and, as we all know, opiod addiction is one of the largest epidemics facing our nation. This is why we need your help. In order to impress upon the FDA to classify CBD correctly, it is CRITICAL that we make appropriate comments.
We MUST AVOID talking about how CBD cured any ailment and instead focus on what CBD does for GENERAL WELLNESS, like the answers supplied below. If we use these answers to let the FDA know that the public is involved and how you feel, then we might be able to get the FDA to change it’s mind about re-classifying CBD.
