Although much of the cannabis community has been waiting on bended knee, for the past few months, to learn whether the U.S Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) will downgrade the Schedule I classification of the cannabis plant, a recent report over the agency’s proposed cultivation quota for 2017 suggests that no changes will likely be made in the near future.

It seems that the US government’s leading drug controls are planning to produce around 1,041 pounds of research cannabis next year, slightly less than the 1,451 pounds slated for cultivation in 2016, according toMarijuana.com.

The news of this suggested decrease in pot production, which was revealed through an official notice in the Federal Register by acting DEA administrator Chuck Rosenberg, may be an indication that there are no plans to reschedule cannabis like many have been hoping for ever since the agency revealed, earlier this year, that it would make a determination on the issue sometime within the second half of 2016.
