US: DEA issues final rule for more cannabis research licenses

The Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) on Thursday revealed a long-awaited final rule aimed at expanding the number of authorized growers of cannabis to be used in scientific research.

In a notice set to be formally published in the Federal Register on Friday, the agency said it made “minor modifications” from the initial proposed rule on licensing cannabis manufacturers it released in March.

DEA responded to numerous public comments it received since then, breaking them down into eight categories: application process and criteria; quality of cannabis; federal agency obligations pertaining to cannabis controls; the meaning of ‘medical cannabis;’ security costs and requirements applicable to the manufacture of cannabis; harvest; cost, pricing and fees of cannabis for DEA registrants and comments outside of the agency’s scope.

The release of these finalized regulations comes as both the House and Senate have recently passed bills to promote cannabis research.
