Recall on Nov. 16 when the U.S. Senate passed a bipartisan bill that will streamline the application process for scientific marijuana research and remove existing barriers that currently slow the research process. This bill was introduced by Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) and Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) with the goal to facilitate marijuana research and its potential health benefits.

The House passed the bill in July, making it the first standalone marijuana-related bill passed by Congress. The bill will now be sent to President Joe Biden to be granted its final approval.
