Proponents of marijuana legalization were delivered a blow this week when the DEA said there’s “no currently accepted medical use treatment in the United States.”

DEA chief Chuck Rosenberg went further, saying marijuana can lead to abuse and should remain a Schedule 1 drug like heroin and LSD, NPR reports.

“This decision isn’t based on danger. This decision is based on whether marijuana, as determined by the FDA, is a safe and effective medicine,” he said, “and it’s not.”

Trouble is, the federal government has only allowed one research institution – the University of Mississippi – examine the medicinal benefits of cannabis.

But the DEA said this week it’s willing to increase the number of institutions that can research the benefits of marijuana.
