On November 16, 2022, the Senate approved the Medical Marijuana and Cannabidiol Research Act, which previously passed the house in July 2022. This bill is the first ever standalone cannabis reform bill that has passed Congress.
The bill is now headed to President Biden’s desk for signature. If signed, this legislation will ease federal restrictions on cannabis research. This bill streamlines the application process for researchers, and allows higher quantities of cannabis for research purposes.
