The U.S. Senate has passed the Cannabidiol and Marijuana Research Expansion Act. The act would let the U.S. Attorney General increase the number of federally licensed entities authorized to cultivate cannabis for FDA-approved research purposes. Currently, only the University of Mississippi is authorized to grow cannabis for use in FDA clinical studies. The U.S. House of Representatives Dec. 9 passed a similar bill, the Medical Marijuana Research Act, which proposes to let authorized scientists access cannabis from state-approved cannabis programs for clinical trials.
