Is Connecticut the new Cannabis Research Capitol?
These past few days, my mind has been a million places while working on this new music. I woke up this morning to see something that was truly exciting to me. Apparently, unbeknownst to me, as of October 1st the Connecticut Medical Marijuana Program is accepting applicants to be a part of Cannabis Research. Applicants will include dispensaries, health care facilities, higher learning institutions and cannabis producers (AGL, CPS, Curaleaf, and Theraplant). The announcement, opens up many new high tech job opportunities here in the state of Connecticut. It will allow for the advancement of cannabis knowledge for patients and everyone a like.
This is big news for people who have learned independently that cannabis heals. Now cannabis can be scientifically studied and proven! According to the Hartford Courant, “In an interview Monday, Harris said Connecticut would be the first state to have “an organized, focused research program.” The federal government classifies marijuana as a schedule one drug, making it difficult to conduct research. Connecticut has re-classified marijuana as a schedule two drug.”
The new jobs in Connecticut will be absolutely fantastic for our economy. I’m hoping it can break open a huge door to legalization here in my home state. I’m positive that I don’t need to tell you what type of economic benefits are possible from legalization! I am personally very excited to hear more about what can be learned about cannabis. Just when you think you have the basics down……new technology arises!
