Colorado colleges are pushing for the right to grow marijuana for the purposes of medical research. The state attorney general’s office wrote to the federal health and education officials asking for permission to grow and research, as the current research is inconsistent or biased. As of now, the only federally sanctioned grow area is found at the University of Mississippi.
“Current research is riddled with bias or insufficiencies and often conflict with one another,” reads the letter, written by deputy attorney general David Blake. “It is critical that we be allowed to fill the void of scientific research, and this may only be done with your assistance and cooperation.”
