CSU-Pueblo embarks on new marijuana research project.

The Pueblo County Board of Commissioners voted Monday, June 13, to allocate $270,000 in marijuana tax revenues to Colorado State University – Pueblo, which will fund a new research institute to study the medical uses and communal effects of legal marijuana, as reported by The Gazette.

Of the $270,000 allotted for cannabis research at CSU-Pueblo, $50,000 will fund community impact studies of legalization in the state of Colorado and $220,000 will fund medical marijuana research.

“There’s been a real dearth of research on cannabis in general in the last 50 years,” Pueblo County Commissioner Sal Pace said. “Anecdotally, there’s a lot of evidence that there are real medical conditions that can be helped by cannabis, such as glaucoma, Crohn’s disease and epilepsy.”
