Governors of Washington and Rhode Island Ask for Marijuana Reclassification

The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) received a request from Gov. Christine Gregoire (D-Washington) and Gov. Lincoln D. Chafee (Ind.-Rhode Island) asking that marijuana be reclassified from a Schedule I drug  to a Schedule II drug, which would essentially allow it to be used for medical and research purposes like Cocaine but keeping it illegal in terms of illicit use.
