One step closer! US helps enable medical marijuana research.

Great news for medical marijuana! The Obama Administration has removed the Public Health Service (PHS) Review, a major obstacle for cannabis research.

Great news on the medical marijuana front! The Obama Administration has removed a major obstacle holding back entities attempting to research cannabis.

The obstacle is called the Public Health Service (PHS) Review, which was crafted by the Clinton Administration in order to heavily control marijuana research. The review requires individual review for every marijuana research application, which causes tremendous lag and ultimately no one gets anything done.

But now that’s gone, we expect cannabis research applications to get approved with flying colors at breakneck speed! Okay, so maybe not just yet. But we’re staying optimistic!
