Nearly 30 former U.S. attorneys are urging federal authorities not to change marijuana's status as a Schedule I substance in an open letter sent to Attorney General Merrick Garland and the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, calling the drug "more dangerous" now than at any time during the last 50 years.



The signatories said they are "deeply concerned" over the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services' recommendation that cannabis be rescheduled, saying that doing so could only benefit criminal organizations, according to an announcement issued Thursday by Smart Approaches to Marijuana, a political organization opposed to marijuana legalization.



"Further, marijuana sales (even in jurisdictions that have legalized marijuana) in the U.S. remain a profitable enterprise for drug cartels," the letter, dated Wednesday, said. "Now is not the time to loosen federal restrictions on a drug that addicts millions of Americans and boosts profits for cartels."
