In Historic First, Congress Passes Medical Marijuana Research Bill


News

The bill, which had support from Sens. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, and Dianne Feinstein, D-California – the two were for years considered obstacles to marijuana reform – passed the Senate on Wednesday without a vote via a process called unanimous consent.
