On Nov. 13, the California Bureau of Cannabis Control (BCC) announced it had awarded research grants to eight public universities to study the state’s cannabis system and its impacts. “The research conducted through these public university grants will provide critical information for evaluating our legal cannabis system and its impacts,” former Bureau of Cannabis Control Chief Lori Ajax said in a press release. (Ajax’s retirement was effective Dec. 2.) “This research will be a valuable tool to inform future cannabis policy in California.”
