Earlier this month, Massachusetts added another medical marijuana dispensary to its state's list when the first dispensary in Boston opened its doors. Just several days later, the U.S. government confirmed that it would not reclassify marijuana from a Schedule 1 drug to something lesser.
Well, this is confusing, isn't it? That is the state of marijuana laws in this country and has been for some time. While there is a growing acceptance of the drug -- even recreationally -- throughout the country, federal officials have fought that acceptance. The decision earlier this month suggests the fight and thus the confusion continue.
