Bad News? SCOTUS Marijuana Legalization Case Postponed On February 19

America has been anticipating a federal marijuana legalization decision by the Supreme Court that should have taken place on February 19, but there was a delay due to the death of Justice Antonin Scalia, according to the Sun Times.

However, although many investors and state officials are champing at the bit for the decision to be made and their futures to be decided, some say that the death of Judge Scalia could in fact mean that marijuana legalization will actually pass the Supreme Court and become legalized federally.

Alternatively, there are experts that feel the Supreme Court will pass on hearing the case and the decision may defer to President Obama to declassify marijuana as a Schedule 1 drug.

In the meantime, evidence mounts from scientific studies that marijuana is hardly the same as other Schedule 1 drugs and instead is now known to cure migraines, reduce obesity, and does not cause anxiety, depression, or lower IQ points.
