House committee briefed on WSU cannabis research

The new chair of WSU’s Committee for Cannabis Research and Outreach appeared before the House Commerce & Gaming Committee today to outline the university’s efforts to study the effects of cannabis consumption.

Initiative 502 carved out funds for the University of Washington and WSU to do such work. Michael McDonell, an associate professor in the Elson S. Floyd College of Medicine, was recently named to lead research efforts at WSU. You can watch his presentation below.
