Comments

"In her opening statement, Chairwoman Anna Eshoo (D-Calif.) noted that the “purpose of today’s hearing is to examine the pressing need for medical research about cannabis and its chemical compounds,” as cannabis, or marijuana, is now legal for medicinal use in 33 states and for recreational use in 11 states and Washington, D.C., but it remains illegal at the federal level. Eshoo added that cannabis’s designation as a Schedule I substance under the Controlled Substances Act (CSA), defined as having no medicinal value, “restricts legitimate medical research” and leaves researchers in a Catch-22." 1/17/20
