How exactly would marijuana be decriminalized in the US? Who would effect its removal from Schedule 1
? Is that something Obama could do?

Eventually, it's assumed that all the MedicalMJ activity at the state level will force this change. But who has the authority to do it? Could somebody in the FDA authorize the schedule update?
Another aspect: I remember long ago reading that cannabis would/could never be made legal because of certain narcotics-related treaties the US has signed with other countries.
