Let’s not count our chickens just yet, although it is a step closer
Republican Congressman Bob Goodlatte has announced that he is supporting a bill that will simplify the process of medical marijuana research.
Goodlatte’s spokeswoman, Kathryn Rexrode, told Bloomberg that Goodlatte would co-sponsor the bill with Rep. Matt Gaetz
A spokesman for the Florida congressman told Bloomberg that the bill was set to be introduced on Tuesday or Wednesday, and a news conference would be held by its sponsors.
Even though he is the head of the House Judiciary Committee, the bill would only ensure that he DEA could not interfere into the marijuana research, it would not protect states current laws.
