Comments

"Antiquated laws written during the War on Drugs have built blockades to urgent research that could help us better understand the physical and mental health impact of marijuana," said Congresswoman Dingell. "With the Medical Marijuana Research Act, we can empower the researchers who will educate the public about any and all potential benefits and risks of marijuana use. It is time to move our nation's drug laws into the 21st century, and this legislation is a critical piece of that process." (12/9/20)

"For decades, our nation's broken marijuana laws caused deep trauma by locking up generations of Black and Brown people, while enacting antiquated barriers to critical research," said Congresswoman Dingell. "Even though I recognize the dangers of substance use disorders and the remaining unknowns of marijuana, it is abundantly clear that inaction is not the answer. With the passage of the MORE Act today, the House of Representatives has taken a first step towards righting the wrongs of our past by giving small businesses access to banks, decriminalizing marijuana and expunging criminal records, investing in research of the physical and mental health impacts, and implementing intentional economic policies focused on those hurt most by the War on Drugs. But our work cannot end here. That is why I will continue to advocate for legislation like my Medical Marijuana Research Act to ensure researchers can conduct critical, science-driven research." (12/4/20)

"Cannabis has many medical benefits, but the Federal government has gotten in the way of further medical research that'd help us better understand the effects," said Dingell. "Removing barriers that prevent research will help provide additional treatment options for millions of patients. It's important we encourage cannabis research so we can tap into its endless medical possibilities." (1/15/20)
