AZ Medical professional’s Claim Versus DEA for Cannabis Research Gets Dismissed
November 5, 2019 by erfa5t8
A suit versus the DEA that was led by Dr. Sue Sisley regarding the Administration’s procedure to approve new applications to cultivate cannabis for research functions in the U.S. has actually been thrown out by the U.S. Court of Appeals. The claim declared the DEA was stalling on approving brand-new cannabis growers for marijuana to be utilized for medical research.
Dr. Sisley argued that the University of Mississippi remains the sole supplier of medical cannabis for federal research purposes and the lack of variety and low quality coming from them hindered the possible outcomes of research study studies, < a href=" https://www.westword.com/marijuana/lawsuit-against-dea-over-medical-marijuana-research-dismissed-11537609" target=" _ blank" rel=

None have been authorized yet. In August the DEA stated it ‘d start speeding up the evaluation process for applications already received.
The public comment period concerning the process ended recently. That now gives the DEA 90 extra days to make a judgment on the applications.
Dr. Sisley, an Arizona-based researcher, concluded the first-ever medical trial of medical cannabis for PTSD in February 2019.
