Redfern Customers Support Federal Recreation Marijuana Cannabis Legalization

Redfern’s Customers Send Message: Legalize Cannabis


85% of Redfern’s Poll-takers Are For Legalizing Recreational Cannabis

Sixty-two poll-takers answered the question: “Do you want to see recreational cannabis legalized federally in 2024? ” Fifty-three respondents were a definiteness YES (85%), Five answered NO (8%), and Four were UNSURE (6%). If Redfern’s customers are any indicator, It’s clear that the majority of the population either recognizes the medicinal benefits of cannabis and/or acknowledges the pitfalls of criminalizing non-violent offenders over possessing a plant. We can be thankful for the tremendous progress since the Reefer Madness days which began in the late 1930s.

Although a complete Federal declassification seems out of the picture for 2024, there is still positive news. On April 30th, FORBES came out with the article, ‘DEA Agrees To Reclassify Marijuana Under Federal Law, AP Reports,’ which claims the Executive Branch’s Office of Management and Budget will declassify Marijuana from a Schedule I substance to a Schedule III substance.

Apparently, in August 2023, the DEA yielded to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services whom formally recommended that cannabis be rescheduled under the Controlled Substance Act (CSA). The recommendation was based on a review of the science behind the medicinal use of cannabis that supported the change to Schedule III, a less strict classification that includes drugs such as Tylenol with codeine and testosterone.

The most important take-away from the Forbes article were the comments made by the executive director of the cannabis policy reform group Marijuana Policy Project, Matthew Schweich. His comments are compiled below.

This is a positive step forward for federal cannabis policy, however it is a rather modest step given the strong support among American voters for comprehensive cannabis reform . . . It is important to acknowledge that this rescheduling would not affect the criminalization of medical cannabis patients and cannabis consumers under state laws – so we must continue the work of enacting sensible and fair cannabis legalization and medical cannabis laws through state legislatures and ballot initiatives . . . I’m underwhelmed by the progress made during President Biden’s administration, I think it was fair to expect more . . . It was absurd to consider cannabis to be more dangerous than heroin, as is the case today. It will remain absurd to consider cannabis to be more dangerous than alcohol, Xanax, and Valium, which will still be the case after this rescheduling takes effect. ”

Complete Redfern’s New Poll On Hemp Microdose Edibles!

In our next poll we’re asking Redfern customers to tell us about their experience with microdosing THC. Currently, Redfern Hemp Co. sells legal 25:1 Edibles which contains the legal twenty-five parts CBD to one part THC ratio of 50MG THC to 1500 MG CBD per edible.

This new line of products would contain no CBD and a maximum amount of 2MG THC. We’ve realized that for some customers our 25:1 edibles may just be too strong. Our hope is that our future line of microdose products will have broad mass-market appeal for customers who simply want to take the edge off without feeling high.

In anticipation of launching our new line of microdose edibles we want to hear from you! We appreciate your input.

With Virginia’s new hemp laws a single hemp edible can legally contain no more than 2MG of THC
