Utah: Sen. Hatch (R) Introduces Marijuana Research Bill
Author: Monterey Bud  14/09/2017 - 15:22:00

On Wednesday, Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-UT) introduced new legislation that seeks to improve and streamline the process for conducting scientific research on marijuana

From the Senate floor, Hatch rolled out his new Marijuana Effective Drug Study Act of 2017, declaring that “It’s high time to address research into medical marijuana.” 

Loaded with double entendres, Hatch noted: “Our country has experimented with a variety of state solutions without properly delving into the weeds on the effectiveness, safety, dosing, administration, and quality of medical marijuana. All the while, the federal government strains to enforce regulations that sometimes do more harm than good. To be blunt, we need to remove the administrative barriers preventing legitimate research into medical marijuana, which is why I’ve decided to roll out the MEDS Act.” 

While encouraging his colleagues to join in this political “kumbaya moment,” Sen. Hatch appealed to their compassion, asking they participate in this “joint effort to help thousands of Americans suffering from a wide range of diseases and disorders.

Early supporters of the Senator’s legislation include Sen. Cory Gardner (R-CO), Sen. Chris Coons (D-DE), Sen. Brian Schatz (D-HI) and Thom Tillis (R-NC).
