This panel will discuss the need for and challenges of conducting scientific and behavioral research into the potential medical uses and risks of cannabis and its components. The importance of scientific scrutiny is growing as more states legalize recreational and medical marijuana. This plenary session will discuss the regulatory challenges of studying marijuana use in both the lab and community settings, the chasm between federal and state laws, and special considerations for IRB review of marijuana research.
