Government officials told the New York Times that instead, the DEA would allow more universities to grow marijuana for medical research purposes. The DEA announced its decision in a press release, saying marijuana "does not meet the criteria for now accepted medical use in treatment in the United States".
Previously, only one institution - the University of MS - has been allowed to do so, creating a bottleneck for research, with scientists having to wait years to obtain federally-approved samples. Despite a trend towards decriminalization and legalization on the state level, the DEA's denial of these petitions indicates the Obama administration has not changed its stance on marijuana .
However, pregnant women who are infected with the Zika virus have reported poor pregnancy outcomes and giving birth to babies with birth defects, according to the Illinois Department of Public Health.

Thiago Pereira could deliver the host country's first swimming medal of the games. Even though Ryan Lochte would likely have taken Phelp's place as the most decorated olympian in history if Phelp's wasn't around, Lochte seems to have remained extremely chill about it.
Colangelo was watching courtside as the team he built on the theory that chemistry is just as important as talent struggled to contain Australia defensively and was taken out of its offensive flow by the aggressive play of the Australians. The US know the Boomers will be physical. In a game when depth is going to be tested one would assume as they go through tough periods, a player like Goulding could turn the game on its head.
Battalion Chief Dan Ogren says the bodies of two people were removed from the building Thursday and taken to the Office of the chief Medical Examiner for autopsies and identification.

That means you need to take precautions to protect yourself from mosquitoes that could be carrying the virus. West Nile is not contagious between horses, but it can be carried by mosquitoes from a bird host to horses and humans. Residents outdoors should use mosquito repellent with at least 20 percent DEET but no more than 30 percent. Residents can also remove standing water where mosquitoes can breed, make sure door and window screens are in good fix and use mosquito fish in troughs and ...

It took years for investigators to identify him as the suspect, a process aided by DNA analysis.
It is also Ireland's first-ever olympic rowing medal. The O'Donovans produced the race of their life, with another strong finish seeing them come from fifth at the halfway mark to win silver in six minutes 31.23 seconds. "I'm already dreading going home because Mick Conlan said he'd box the head off us if we didn't get the gold". Twenty-three-old Gary, the elder by 16 months, said that they had targeted an Olympic medal after finishing 11th at last year's World Championships.
But when Zika (or related flaviviruses like dengue and hepatitis C) infects the cell, that network is manipulated into helping the virus to spread. Until this week, there had been no reported cases of birth defects related to Zika in Canada.
Small Business Minister Michael McCormack, who took on responsibility for the census just three weeks ago, stressed that no information had been "lost" or compromised. "It was an attack", Kalisch told the Australian Broadcasting Corporation. Melbourne-based company Revolution IT has also been paid $378,332 by the Australian Bureau of Statistics since January 11 for IT consulting and "load testing" on the census and agricultural census .
However, the DEA has decided not to change marijuana's Schedule 1 classification, which lists the drug alongside heroin, indicating that marijuana has a "high potential for abuse". The DEA says risks from marijuana use have not been shown to be outweighed by benefits found in clinical trials. Jaclyn Stafford, an assistant manager at The Station dispensary in Boulder, Colorado, called the DEA's decision "an inaccurate judgment of the plant".
Jose Mourinho is often regarded as one of most successful manager in the world. Januzaj is said to be "humiliated" and "upset" with Mourinho's decision to grant Anthony Martial the number 11 shirt and reallocate the Belgian number 15, whilst also making him train with the reserves.
Though Shappley appreciates the gender-neutral space, she fears Kai will feel alienated and confusion when she tries to use the bathroom that feels most natural to her during lunch or recess.

On Thursday, the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA ) formally refused to reconsider its classification of marijuana, which is officially regulated as a risky substance with no medical value, alongside drugs like heroin and LSD. According to the report, the DEA will now allow additional facilities to grow medical marijuana for research studies into its efficacy in treating epilepsy , chronic pain relief and a variety of other conditions.
Towards the end of a heated 90-minute debate in Gateshead, chaired by Sky's Sophy Ridge, he said serving under Mr Corbyn would be "futile work". Indeed, 45% of those who voted for Labour at the last general election say he is performing badly in his role as party leader.
By comparison, heroin also is listed as a Schedule I drug . Eight Democratic legislators had urged the DEA to reclassify marijuana to a Schedule 2 drug. But the Drug Enforcement Administration did open the door to more research on the drug and its possible medical uses. While rejecting those petitions, Rosenberg issued a separate policy statement Thursday that could measurably expand the amount of marijuana being cultivated for medical research.
The pair also disagreed over Labour's chances of winning an election at the event, hosted by Sky News' Sophy Ridge. If the appeal is rejected, Corbyn could receive a significant boost in his fight to remain party leader, as most new members are expected to support him.

The Food and Drug Administration classifies Schedule 1 drugs as ones with no known medical use. "Marijuana has no now accepted medical use in treatment in the United States", Rosenberg wrote in the denial letters , citing the HHS evaluation.
Despite scoring 14 points, Kevin Durant nearly cost Team USA a win, going 4-of-16 from the field. He opened the game with a flurry of triples, then hit several big shots in the fourth quarter when the game was still close. Andrew Bogut had warned his teammates before the game not to fall into the trap of paying too much respect to the Americans. There's a reason why he's been doing this for many years.
Other drugs on the list include heroin, LSD and the stimulant called "Ecstasy". Paul Armentano, deputy director of the marijuana legalization group NORML, said in an earlier interview that even a reclassification by the DEA would fall "well short of the sort of federal reform necessary to reflect America's emerging reefer reality".
A new study published in The BMJ late Tuesday suggests another intriguing possibility - that arthrogryposis may be yet another condition linked to Zika. The children had scans of their joints and surrounding tissues. No evidence of joint abnormalities was found, van der Linden said. When the cause is neurological due to a virus, "these kids need lifelong follow-up, there is no definitive treatment, unfortunately", she said.
In fact, Americans were more anxious about Ebola in 2014 and the swine flu in 2009 than they are about Zika today. A case of Zika virus has been confirmed in Lafayette County by the Mississippi State Department of Health.

My Democratic colleagues have called on Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and House Speaker Paul Ryan to hold a vote on a bipartisan bill ...
