Federal Government Needs More Marijuana for Research Studies

Federal Government Needs More Marijuana for Research Studies

TheStreet (May 9, 2014) The National Institute for Drug Abuse, or NIDA, has asked the Drug Enforcement Agency for more marijuana. NIDA has requested an increase from 21,000 grams to 650,000 grams, or roughly 1,433 pounds of pot. As of January, NIDA has funded 28 active grants related to therapeutic uses of marijuana in six different disease categories covering AIDS, pain, schizophrenia, seizures and hard drug withdrawal. But NIDA frequently contradicts on the subject of marijuana: a NIDA-funded study at Yale looking at cannabis as a treatment for schizophrenia warned that marijuana could worsen the condition. NIDA gets its pot from The University of Mississippi, the only legal marijuana farm that grows pot for the government. The request is now open to the public for comment. Video provided by TheStreet

Congress Tells DEA to Stand Down on Legal Marijuana

TheStreet (May 30, 2014) Congress passed a measure that would deny the Drug Enforcement Agency to spend federal money interfering with state approved medical marijuana businesses. Dan Riffle of the Marijuana Policy Project says the key to getting the measure passed this time was the 49 Republicans who voted in favor. Normally, Republicans see medical marijuana as a liberal issue, but now they are beginning to recognize it as a states' rights issue. California Representative Dana Rohrabacher sponsored the measure. Many California marijuana dispensaries and patients have been raided or arrested by the DEA. Video provided by TheStreet
