Rep. Bishop introduces medical marijuana research bill

By David Wells

The MEDS Act (H.R. 4825) “is aimed at creating a reasoned and responsible environment where the best minds may be able to analyze and examine something about which we know very little,” according to a statement released by Rep. Bishop’s office Thursday.

“The MEDS Act is common sense. When presented with an opportunity to alleviate the suffering of those afflicted with painful disorders, we must take it. We don’t know all the answers when it comes to the effects of medical-grade marijuana. This legislation allows scientists and researchers to get at those answers in a responsible manner that isn’t hindered by unnecessary roadblocks,” Bishop wrote in the statement.
