 I reschedule marijuana, and, ironically, Respondent's attempt to
 i defend that decision only reiterates its unfairness.
 For the foregoing reasons and for the reasons stated in
 i Petitioners' Brief and in Intervenors _ Briefs this Court should
 i remand the petition to DEA with instructions to (i) apply a legal
 standard that does not give controlling weight to FDA-prescribed
 I requirements for interstate marketing approval; (2) reopen the
 record to allow Petitioners and Intervenors to submit additional
 t evidence; and (3) review the record evidence with the objectivity
 i and impartiality appropriate to agency action.
 Respectfully submitted_
