Federal Government Wants to Grow More Pot

Last when the U.S. federal government discreetly posted an an ad looking for more cultivators to boost their supply and decided to grow even more cannabis for clinical research, they raised a lot of eyebrows with their quiet foray into joining the rest of the country in its quest for more cannabis. This year, they’re back at it and have decided to triple the amount of cannabis they produce annually.

According to a proposal released last week, the government will adjust the production quota for the year after realizing “research and product development involving cannabidiol (CBD) is increasing beyond that previously anticipated.” Although DEA Administrator Michele Lenohart originally signed off on 125,000 grams to be produced, the organization now says the government should amend that amount to 400,000 grams.

If the proposal is accepted, this will be the second year in a row that cannabis production has increased.

People that are interested in voicing their opinion on the proposal have been invited to visit regulations.gov where they can post a comment for 30 days.

    If the federal government is going to be involved it should be legal so the banking system can get in the market and Americans can get back to making money…………smoke on that!
