Research Support Funding

Research Funding Support

Limited evidence, research regulations, and inconclusive research on medical marijuana leave us with a knowledge gap related to medical marijuana use outcomes. The Consortium supports medical marijuana research at Consortium member institutions through its annual grants program, now in its sixth cycle. The next request for proposals will be released on October 31st, 2024.
