1. Currently accepted medical use in treatment in the United States
2. Their relative abuse potential
3. Likelihood of causing dependence when abused

1960's: THC Levels = 1%
Today: THC Levels = 10-15%

*So why does it "calm" people down?
Think of how you feel when you crave food and can't have it. You may feel tense and angry. Once you get that food, you feel happy. Same goes for someone addicted to nicotine. They feel "relaxed" when the craving is satisfied.
