How does medical and/or the legalization of marijuana impact flight training?
AOPA Staff Answer
Marijuana (cannabis) is listed as a Schedule I drug, along with heroin, LSD, mescaline, Ecstasy, psilocybin, and others under the Controlled Substances Act. Even though many states have decriminalized or legalized it for recreational or medical use, it is still an illegal drug under federal law and is disqualifying for any class of medical certificate.
