Most Universities Have No Interest in Growing Marijuana for the DEA
The U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration recently announced that it would finally tear down some of the barriers that have prevented the scientific community from studying marijuana by providing more opportunities for institutions of higher learning to get involved with the cultivation of research cannabis. Unfortunately, a new report finds that the DEA’s offer to facilitate more federally sanctioned growers may not bring about the vibrant transform the cannabis community had hoped for because many universities have absolutely no interest in growing weed.
Recently, the folks at STAT contacted nearly a dozen universities across the nation—some of which already operate industrial hemp programs—to find out just how many of these schools are eager to get into bed with the federal government to grow research marijuana.
Marijuana supporters ask Michigan Supreme Court to allow legalization vote
Believers in the right for Michigan voters to decide whether or not the state should legalize recreational marijuana use for people 21 and older are taking the fight to the state's highest court.
MI Legalize, the group behind the effort to place a question about legalizing recreational marijuana use on the November 2016 ballot, filed a motion for the Michigan Supreme Court to overturn a lower court's ruling that the state has no obligation to count all of the the submitted voter signatures.
"Immediate action is necessary so that the voters are not deprived of their right to vote" on the question in the November election, the Thursday, Aug. 25, motion submitted to the Supreme Court reads, asking for the case to be expedited.
