A congressional committee plans to vote this week on a bill that would allow researchers to study marijuana products from state-legal dispensaries, rather than have them rely on a very limited supply of cannabis preparations from what is currently the only federally authorized source. The intent of the provision, which is tucked into a 1,200-plus-page transit bill that will go before the House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee on Wednesday, is to let scientists conduct impaired driving research using the actual marijuana products that consumers are purchasing and using. It would also allow the interstate distribution of cannabis to scientists in jurisdictions that have not yet enacted legalization.
