Brewer signs bill permitting marijuana research

medical marijuanaArizona Gov. Jan Brewer has signed a bill that would allow public colleges and universities to conduct medical marijuana research.

Brewer’s action Tuesday comes roughly a year after she signed a bill banning medical marijuana on higher education campuses.

Critics say last year’s law was too strict.

The new law would benefit a University of Arizona researcher studying whether medical marijuana helps veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder.

Senate Bill 1443 passed with near unanimous support from the GOP-led Legislature.

Arizona voters legalized medical marijuana in 2010.
