Description:

The CMCR was established pursuant to California Senate Bill 847 (Vasconcellos, 1999), passed by the California State Legislature and signed into law by then Governor Gray Davis. The legislation called for a program overseeing objective, high quality medical research that would “enhance understanding of the efficacy and adverse effects of marijuana as a pharmacological agent” (SB 847). This included conducting clinical and pre-clinical studies of cannabinoids, including smoked marijuana, to provide evidence whether marijuana has therapeutic value.

More recently, California Proposition 64 (Adult Use of Marijuana Act) is expected to provide funding (beginning in 2018) to the CMCR to “[enhance our] understanding of the efficacy and adverse effects of marijuana as a pharmacological agent.”
