DEA Opens Cannabis Rescheduling Comment Period

The Drug Enforcement Administration published its proposed rescheduling of cannabis today. There is a comment period that ends on July 22nd.

The biggest outcome of cannabis being rescheduled from Schedule 1 to Schedule 3 would be the elimination of the onerous 280E taxation. We first wrote about this as being very necessary for cannabis stocks to rally in our newsletter on December 11, 2022. President Biden had already shared his plans to potentially reschedule.

The end of 280E taxation would boost cash flow and net income for the companies that grow, process or sell cannabis in the United States.
