Biden signs cannabis research bill, a historic first for federal cannabis reform

President Joe Biden has officially signed a cannabis research bill into law, making history by enacting the first piece of standalone federal cannabis reform legislation in U.S. history.

The law gives the U.S. attorney general 60 days to either approve a given application or request supplemental information from the cannabis research applicant. It also creates a more efficient pathway for researchers who request larger quantities of cannabis.

The four co-chairs of the Congressional Cannabis Caucus—Blumenauer and Reps. Barbara Lee (D-CA), Dave Joyce (R-OH) and Brian Mast (R-FL)—released a joint statement following the president’s signing.

“For decades, the federal government has stood in the way of science and progress—peddling a misguided and discriminatory approach to cannabis. Today marks a monumental step in remedying our federal cannabis laws,” they said. “The Medical Marijuana and Cannabidiol Research Expansion Act will make it easier to study the impacts and potential of cannabis.”
