Michigan Awards $20 Million In Marijuana Tax-Funded Grants To Fund Veterans-Focused Research

The research must be approved by the FDA and sponsored by the grant recipient

Michigan regulators are issuing another round of grants to support research into the therapeutic benefits of marijuana for military veterans, using tax dollars the state generated from adult-use cannabis sales.

This time, the Michigan Cannabis Regulatory Agency announced that it has recommended awarding $20 million in grants to two universities as part of the Veteran Marijuana Research (VMR) Grant Program.

The funding is required under Michigan’s cannabis law, which mandates that the state expend $20 million annually for two years to scientists at academic institutions or non-profits organizations, with the purpose of supporting clinical trials into the medical efficacy of marijuana for veterans and veteran suicide prevention.

The clinical trials into cannabis must be approved by the federal Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and sponsored by the grant recipient.
