Best Answer

In the United States, this power has been left to each individual State. For the Federal government to establish standards, the courts would have to rule the assumption of a State power back to the Federal government as constitutional. Given the current justices on the US Supreme Court (in 2012) this is extremely unlikely to occur.

Marijuana against the Federal government?

Under federal law, marijuana is treated like every other controlled substance, such as cocaine and heroin. The federal government places every controlled substance in a schedule, in principle according to its relative potential for abuse and medicinal value. Under the CSA, marijuana is classified as a Schedule I drug, which means that the federal government views marijuana as highly addictive and having no medical value. Doctors may not "prescribe" marijuana for medical use under federal law, though they can "recommend" its use under the First Amendment.
