Schedule 1 Drugs are illegal because they have high abuse potential, no medicinal use, and severe safety concerns; for example, narcotics such as Heroin, LSD, and cocaine.

This seems contradictory since opium, synthesized into morphine is used 'medicanlly' in surgeries both before and after surgery.

Am I missing something? Heroin and opium and morphine from the same plant I assume.

Yes, cocaine and poppy derivatives are not schedule one.

That is a very big miss IMO.

As of July 2015, all residents of Oregon, (including the major city of Portland) became able to legally grow up to 4 marijuana plants in their home for recreational use. Here at ILGM, we can’t think of any better recreation than marijuana growing.
