WASHINGTON, DC: This week, Congressmen Andy Harris, M.D. (R-MD-01), Earl Blumenauer (D-OR-03), H. Morgan Griffith (R-VA-09), and Sam Farr (D-CA-20) will be introducing the Medical Marijuana Research Act of 2016. This bill heeds the calls of the medical research community to address the burdensome processes that currently impede legitimate medical research on marijuana. This bill is a bipartisan and bicameral solution that removes barriers inhibiting medical marijuana research.

WASHINGTON, DC: Next week, Congressman Andy Harris (MD-01), will be hosting three constituent town hall meetings in Maryland’s First Congressional District, to answer questions about the work he is doing in Washington and listen to the concerns of First District residents. Constituents are invited to attend and ask questions.
