Federal Government Supporting Research on Beneficial Effect of Marijuana

For the first time, the Federal Government is supporting research into the beneficial effects of Marijuana.  As reported by AllGov, “For those conducting studies of the harmful effects of marijuana, the federal government has usually been willing to share from its stash, which comes from the only federally sanctioned pot farm in the country. But those looking to find positive uses for the drug have always found Uncle Sam to be bogarting his joint”.Now, however, the Department of Health and Human Services has approved the sale of federally grown marijuana for a study that will research whether pot can help veterans cope with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD).   University of Arizona Professor Suzanne Sisley will be conducting the study that will be funded by the Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS).   According to the report, this organization has been trying for 22 years to secure the marijuana legally for research of this type.This is considered to be something of a breakthrough because while medical marijuana is no legal in many states, the federal government still classifies it as a Schedule I narcotic, which means the drug is considered to have a high potential for abuse and no accepted medical utility:
