UCLA Increasing Cannabis Research With Newly Established Research Group

Posted by Laura Braden on Tue, Aug 08, 2017

As cannabis use becomes legal in more and more states in the US, both for recreational and medical purposes, it is becoming necessary for more research into the drug. Currently in the US, 20% of the population have access to legal recreational marijuana use and 60% have access to legal medical marijuana. Unfortunately, even with such widespread access to cannabis, research if the drug has been limited due to the DEA classifying it as a Schedule I drug in the 1970s.
