It’s about to become easier to do legitimate research on cannabis. A regulation that had turned into a barrier is being removed — by the White House. Is it our turn to get some help from the White House?
The Public Service Health review was created in 1999 to ensure the use of scientifically valid clinical trials, but in practice it served as a barrier to launching studies.
A scientist would submit a proposal to the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for a thorough review of the “scientific validity and ethical soundness” of the project, then the Public Health Service board would conduct another review along the same lines as the FDA. If approved, the research proposal would be granted a marijuana permit from the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), and receive a quantity of marijuana from a program run by the National Institute on Drug Abuse, which controls medical marijuana grown for research in the U.S.
With these restrictions, there were just 156 active research applications approved by the DEA and the majority of the studies focused on the ill effects of smoking marijuana.
There is bi-partisan support for this change. That’s a good sign. Read the complete original post HERE.
