This site displays a prototype of a “Web 2.0” version of the daily Federal Register. It is not an official legal edition of the Federal Register, and does not replace the official print version or the official electronic version on GPO’s govinfo.gov.
The documents posted on this site are XML renditions of published Federal Register documents. Each document posted on the site includes a link to the corresponding official PDF file on govinfo.gov. This prototype edition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov will remain an unofficial informational resource until the Administrative Committee of the Federal Register (ACFR) issues a regulation granting it official legal status. For complete information about, and access to, our official publications and services, go to About the Federal Register on NARA's archives.gov.
The OFR/GPO partnership is committed to presenting accurate and reliable regulatory information on FederalRegister.gov with the objective of establishing the XML-based Federal Register as an ACFR-sanctioned publication in the future. While every effort has been made to ensure that the material on FederalRegister.gov is accurately displayed, consistent with the official SGML-based PDF version on govinfo.gov, those relying on it for legal research should verify their results against an official edition of the Federal Register. Until the ACFR grants it official status, the XML rendition of the daily Federal Register on FederalRegister.gov does not provide legal notice to the public or judicial notice to the courts.
On November 4, 1999, the Deputy Assistant Administrator, Office of Diversion Control, Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) issued an Order to Show Cause proposing to deny The Church of the Living Tree's application for registration as a manufacturer of the controlled substance marijuana. Effective August 18, 2000, the DEA Administrator, in his final order published in the Federal Register, 65 FR 50567, denied the application for registration, noting that The Church of the Living Tree had not responded to the Order to Show Cause.
By letter dated August 11, 2000, a representative of The Church of the Living Tree advised that he had in fact properly submitted a timely request for hearing. Photocopies of a United States Postal Service Receipt for Certified Mail and Domestic Return Receipt indicating delivery accompanied the letter.
Inasmuch as it appears that The Church of the Living Tree timely requested a hearing in this matter, the final order should not have issued. The Deputy Administrator of the Drug Enforcement Administration therefore orders that the final order published August 18, 2000, at 65 Fed. Reg. 50567 be, and it hereby is, rescinded, and this matter is hereby remanded to the Office of Administrative Law Judges, Drug Enforcement Administration, for further appropriate proceedings. This order is effective December 5, 2000.Start Signature
