The hits just keep coming for Barr !
Cannabis researcher Dr. Lyle Craker has filed suit over the DEA’s failure to license additional growers for research-grade cannabis.
Dr. Lyle Craker, of the University of Massachusetts – Amherst, is suing the Drug Enforcement Administration, U.S. Attorney General William Barr, and Acting DEA Administrator Timothy Shea over the federal government’s failure to process cannabis research applications.
The Multidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies (MAPS) says the administration of President Donald Trump and the DEA have “failed to process more than 30 outstanding license applications for over four years despite administrative guidance; the DEA’s announced plans; and the support of scientists, senators,” and the National Institutes on Drug Abuse. Craker is seeking federal approval to cultivate cannabis “to support safe and effective cannabis research,” according to the lawsuit.
