Rounding up reactions to DEA's modest marijuana moves

As reported in prior posts here and here, the Drug Enforcement Agency this past week made only a modest change to federal marijuana policies.  Not surprisingly, the failure of DEA being willing to do a lot more has generated criticisms and various expressions of concern and analytical perspectives.  Here are some of these reactions from various traditional and non-traditional media sources:

  • From Business Insider here, "Here's what the DEA's big decision on marijuana means for users and 'potrepreneurs'"

  • From Forbes here, "DEA's Hypocritical Marijuana Decision Ignores The Evidence"

  • From Marijuana.com here, "DEA No, Clinton Yes: As POTUS, Hillary Would Reschedule Marijuana"

  • From the New York Times here, "Stop Treating Marijuana Like Heroin"

  • From Quartz here, "The DEA's sop to pot advocates won't boost marijuana research very much at all"
