By Christopher Ingraham, The Washington Post

A long-standing bureaucratic obstacle to privately-funded medical marijuana research has just been removed, effective immediately.

Until today if you wanted to conduct marijuana research, you’d need to do the following:

Submit your study proposal to the Food and Drug Administration for a thorough review of its “scientific validity and ethical soundness.”
Submit your proposal to a separate Public Health Service (PHS) board, which performs pretty much the exact same review as the FDA.
Get a marijuana permit from the Drug Enforcement Administration.
Finally, obtain a quantity of medical marijuana via the Drug Supply Program run by the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), which maintains a monopoly on medical marijuana grown for research in the U.S.
