Michael J. Fox Foundation Strongly Urges Support of Medical Cannabis Research

The Michael J. Fox Foundation (MJFF) asserted its support of increased access to cannabis for the purpose of medical research. In addition, the foundation is promoting three specific cannabis reform bills that would eliminate barriers to research.

The Medical Cannabis Research Act of 2019, or H.R. 601, would increase pathways to cannabis research, most notably for Parkinson’s disease. The VA Medical Cannabis Research Act of 2019, or H.R. 712 and S. 179 in the Senate, would increase access to medical cannabis for veterans. The Expanding Cannabis Research and Information Act, or H.R. 4322 and S. 2400 in the Senate, would reclassify cannabis at the federal level. MJFF specifically joined the Parkinson’s Foundation to send letters of support for The Expanding Cannabis Research and Information Act.
