Judge's order: grow more pot!|
Sad story, not enough research marijuana to go around. How do we fix that?
It seems that the Government's regular supply of "research" marijuana isn't enough to go around. Hmm... I wonder what could be happening to it.
A Massachusetts botanist should be allowed to grow marijuana for medical study, a hearing officer said Monday in a ruling that would end a longtime government requirement that all federally approved researchers get their pot supplies from the University of Mississippi.
Because of the monopoly arrangement, in effect since 1968, "there is currently an inadequate supply of marijuana available for research purposes,'' said Mary Ellen Bittner, a Drug Enforcement Administration administrative law judge. She said the application by Lyle Craker, a University of Massachusetts professor of plant biology, "would be in the public interest.'' ¤ Link
