    New federal legislation signals a new era in cannabis policy

    On Wednesday, the Senate passed a bill that will make it easier for scientists to conduct medical marijuana research. This is the first standalone marijuana-related bill approved by both chambers of Congress, and it signals a new era in federal cannabis policy. The bill now heads to President Joe Biden’s desk.


    The bipartisan legislation, which was sponsored by Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) and Rep. Earl Blumenauer (D-Ore.) in their respective chambers, was passed by unanimous consent in both the Senate and the House. The bill will make it easier for scientists to conduct research on medical marijuana and protect doctors who discuss the benefits and drawbacks of using the drug with patients.

    Passage of the bill is a major victory for cannabis advocates, who have been pushing for widespread reform of federal marijuana laws for years. While the bill does not legalize cannabis at the federal level, it represents a major step forward in changing the way that the drug is treated by the government.
