Arlington finally gets a dispensary

Who's really the target consumer of this when TAKOMA WELLNESS, DC's best family-owned and operated dispensary, is just across the river a short, short 45 minute drive away? Tell them Julian sent you!

I couldnít agree more.  Does anyone know if he can change Mary Jane from being schedule 1 drug with an executive order?

No. He can order agencies to CONSIDER making it not a schedule 1 or order them to change enforcement, but he cannot delist marijuana as a schedule 1 drug unilaterally by executive order.

No. He can order agencies to (...) change enforcement

that is his main play: tell the DEA and DOJ to stop pursuing small-scale MJ possession.  two problems:
1. the prez has almost no sway over state and local police.  most small-timers and back-alley joint smokers aren't busted by the DEA. 
2. while some 65% of this country would support de-enforcement/decriminalization/etc., the remaining 35% are likely to make a political mountain of it, and would likely be willing to die on that hill.  IMO it's like abortion: those in favor just expect it, while those opposed are militant.  the right would have an absolute field day labelling Joe the "dealer in chief", "the president that brought crack to every neighborhood", etc.

in a nutshell, it would be lighting a fuse under a red state/blue state issue that currently isn't an issue.  given how many issues Joe has to deal with currently, i doubt he needs a new headache.

but there is honestly big support in red states...maybe not the political leaders, but the voters for sure
I agree there will be a lot of backlash and easy political points will be won with ads like
 'joe's soft on crime, do you want some whacked out Phish fan raping your daughter because he smoked some of Joe's Dank SkunkAF"

but you are 100% right...Joe has Zero control over the police (somewhat by design)
but taking it off schedule 1 would be HUGE and change sentencing dramatically
this could easily reinstate the voting rights of close to a million felons too if done correctly

(can you believe there are 19 milion felons in the US.  the term is somewhat BS though as it doesn't relate to the crime severity as one thinks it does)
