The Coalition for Rescheduling Cannabis is a U.S. organization founded c. 2002 to support removal of marijuana from Schedule I of the Controlled Substances Act. The group was organized immediately after the U.S. Court of Appeals denied the High Times/Jon Gettman petition to reschedule cannabis, ruling that the petitioners were not sufficiently injured to have standing to challenge the Drug Enforcement Administration's interpretation of the scientific record in federal court. On October 8, 2002, the Coalition filed a new petition to have cannabis rescheduled under federal law.[1]

The Coalition has recently filed a Petition for Writ of Mandamus. Carl Olsen of Iowans for Medical Marijuana, a former Coalition member, has filed a motion to intervene.[2]

The organizations comprising the Coalition are:[3]
