White House lifts restriction on marijuana research


The Obama Administration will update the government’s marijuana research policy to allow scientists to have access to the plant and better understand its medicinal purposes and properties.

The official announcement will be published on Tuesday and will make a critical reduction in government regulations for privately funded research on marijuana.

The Obama Administration has actively supported scientific research on whether marijuana or its components can be safe and effective medicine,” Mario Zepeda, a spokesperson for the Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP), told The Huffington Post.

Zepeda said that eliminating the review would help support research to understand the adverse and potential therapeutic uses for marijuana.
