The Government Wants You to Grow Cannabis for Research

The National Institutes of Health – via the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) – needs marijuana for research, and they’re looking for growers to help. The agency’s previous cannabis farming contract is set to expire, leading them to seek a new “video monitored outdoor facility of approximately 12 acres for growing and processing cannabis, and… an indoor growing facility.” 

In addition, potential pot farming candidates must possess “a DEA and Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved and secure storage (vault) facility to maintain an inventory of approximately 400 to 700 kilograms of marijuana stock, cannabis extract and its drug dosage form, marijuana cigarettes, and its active and inactive constituents under controlled conditions.” 

According to NIDA, the purpose of the cannabis to be grown will include the study of new growing methods, the continued analysis of confiscated cannabis, and the extraction of cannabinoids for clinical research.
