Cannabis Public Policy | 420 Somewhere with Dr. Michael Sofis

🥦 Legalization News 529 views 20 hours ago

We've seen some big #federal #Cannabis #news in the headlines this week when President Biden signed a historic bill approving cannabis research.

A national banking association has made demands urging the Senate to take action on the SAFE Banking Act.

President Joe Biden today signed into law a bill that streamlines access to marijuana for medical research. The new law is expected to speed the issuance of government permits to scientists who want to study cannabis, whose medicinal promise has been widely touted but remains, with a few exceptions, unproven. It will also expedite applications from producers—including universities—that want to grow and distribute the drug for research. It also obliges the federal government to make sure an adequate, uninterrupted supply of marijuana is available to scientists.

“We will now be able to treat marijuana like we treat any other substance or pharmaceutical for which we hope there is potential benefit. We will be able to subject it to rigorous scientific trial,” says Representative Andy Harris (R–MD), a physician and former National Institutes of Health (NIH)–funded researcher who helped usher the bipartisan legislation through Congress.

https://www.science.org/content/article/new-u-s-law-promises-light-marijuana-research

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.”
“Research is foundational for the path forward on cannabis policy. Research is essential to better understand the therapeutic benefits of cannabis that have the potential to help millions of Americans struggling with chronic pain, PTSD, multiple sclerosis, anxiety disorders and more.
We celebrate the enactment of this critical and long-overdue legislation, and we know there is much more to do to remedy the ongoing harms of the failed war on drugs. Our caucus will continue working to reimagine the federal government’s approach to cannabis and enact further reforms. In the coming weeks, we are committed to passing subsequent bipartisan, common-sense proposals like the SAFE Banking package, the Veterans Equal Access Act, the PREPARE Act, and the Veterans Medical Marijuana Safe Harbor Act.”

Will SAFE Banking Pass in Lame Duck Session?  Cannabis Legalization News for November 27, 2022. 


Politico is reporting - SAFE Banking may get over the finish line - we know it has sailed through congress many times, but will it make through the senate? 

The SAFE Banking Act has already passed the House in some form six times. But it’s been stuck in the Senate, where it either went too far for certain Republican leaders or not far enough for progressives.

“We're serious. We want to do this,” Senate Banking Chair Sherrod Brown Brown said. “I'm actually fairly optimistic and hopeful that we will come to an agreement.”

The specter of a Republican-led House has lit a fire under proponents of cannabis banking legislation, according to three House and Senate staffers involved in discussions on both sides of the aisle.

Will Republicans block SAFE Banking next congress - share your thoughts with us. Hit them like buttons while you’re dropping the comment. 
Senate Banking Chair Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio), Sens. Steve Daines (R-Mont.) and Jeff Merkley (D-Ore.) and other lawmakers met with Majority Leader Chuck Schumer last week to talk about the #SAFE #Banking #Act. Lawmakers and staffers all said a concerted effort is underway to find common ground between Republicans and Democrats.

Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.) has repeatedly said he opposes passage of a bill that helps weed businesses without in some way helping communities that have been hurt by the criminalization of marijuana over the years. Schumer and Brown backed Booker’s position, while Republicans largely held firm that SAFE Banking didn’t need any companion bills.

The Senate passed H.R. 8454 (Medical #Marijuana and Cannabidiol #Research Expansion Act) by voice vote.

The #bill “would eliminate the red tape that hinders cannabis research, opening the door for new innovative treatments derived from cannabis,” Schumer said ahead of the vote. “If you’re one of the millions of Americans who deals with conditions like Parkinson’s or epilepsy or post-traumatic stress, or any number of other conditions, cannabis might hold promising new options for managing these diseases.”

“We need to do the research first,” he said. “And the federal government, sadly, has been woefully behind the times on this front. This bill will help fix that.

What's in the Medical Marijuana and Cannabidiol Research Expansion Act?

It would streamline the application process for researchers who want to study the plant and to encourage the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to develop cannabis-derived medicines.

It would also clarify that physicians are allowed to discuss the risks and benefits of marijuana with patients and require the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to submit a report on those potential health benefits, as well one on barriers to cannabis research and how to overcome those obstacles.
