The DEA is looking for researchers to grow marijuana in an effort to better understand whether cannabis has medicinal benefits.

Since the 1970s, the DEA gave exclusive license to the University of Mississippi to grow and research marijuana.

The decision comes after the DEA declined to approve marijuana for medical use, saying there was insufficient evidence to remove cannabis from the Schedule I category.

Stat News contacted nearly a dozen agricultural schools to see if they were interested in growing marijuana. All said they had no plans to do so.

Stat News reported:

To register with the agency, applicants will need to show that they will have security measures in place to protect the marijuana and be willing to comply with a host of other requirements. And depending on the scale of the operation, prospective growers will likely have to make significant investments to get it up and running.
