LA Weekly: DEA Finally Announce Rules to Expand Supply of Research Weed

Summary: LA Weekly reports on the Drug Enforcement Administration’s (DEA) announcement to release draft rules for the first round of public comments regarding an expansion of the research-grade marijuana supply in the U.S. beyond the University of Mississippi, which has been the only federally approved cannabis for research for over 50 years. While the DEA’s announcement may mark progress, many researchers are cautiously optimistic, “it’s more unnecessary delays since DEA could and should issue licenses now,” says MAPS Founder Rick Doblin.
