Federal Marijuana Monopoly Challenged

Researchers Want to Grow More Plants and Find More Medicinal Uses
For decades, the federal government has been the nation's only legal producer of marijuana for medical research. Working with growers at the University of Mississippi, the National Institute on Drug Abuse has controlled both the quality and distribution of the drug for the past 36 years.

Let it grow, let it grow, let it grow!!!
