Bipartisan Congressional Sign-On Letter circulating in House of Representatives

Right now is a unique window of opportunity to end the federal government's decades-long stranglehold on research into marijuana's potential as an FDA-approved prescription medicine. On May 15, 2007, DEA Law Judge Mary Ellen Bittner issued an Opinion and Recommended Ruling to DEA in favor of Prof. Craker's application to grow research-grade marijuana at the University of Massachusetts--Amherst. Prof. Craker's facility would end NIDA's decades-long monopoly on the supply of marijuana that can be used in FDA-approved research, and is the focal point of the struggle to bring medical marijuana before the FDA to evaluate whether it meets federal standards for safety and efficacy as a prescription medicine.
