Feds announce plan to continue [Mississippi] marijuana manufacturing monopoly…
The federal monopoly on growing marijuana for research… “Only one responsible source and no other supplies or services will satisfy agency requirements,” NIDA said in the new notice. That one supplier will continue to be the University of Mississippi.
The problem, as far as researchers are concerned, is that the quality of the government’s marijuana is inadequate… the proposal would extend the university’s contract from March 2021 to 2022, “with a potential option for an additional 12 months.” The new filing comes as the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) has delayed plans to license additional cannabis manufacturers to supply researchers.
