Time for Straight Talk on Pot

Marijuana and methamphetamine are both Schedule I drugs. One destroys synapses in the brain, destroys liver and kidney cells and makes people crazy much faster than whiskey. The other one does less damage than beer. Do you know which one is which? Does this DEA policy confuse teenagers? Why confuse them more than necessary when lifelong health of the brain is at stake? Could it possibly be time for Congress to override the DEA and pharmaceutical interests and finally make marijuana a Schedule III drug?
