New Congressional Amendments Would End Marijuana Tests For Federal Job Applicants And Encourage Psychedelic Research – Marijuana Moment

Bipartisan lawmakers propose amendments to federal spending bills aimed at ending marijuana testing for certain federal job applicants and promoting research on psychedelic substances. Rep. Robert Garcia introduced two cannabis measures in separate appropriations bills, prohibiting THC drug testing for most applicants at relevant federal agencies. Reps. Jack Bergman and Lou Correa submitted an amendment encouraging the Department of Veterans Affairs to conduct large-scale studies on drugs like psilocybin and MDMA, which have FDA “Breakthrough Therapy” status. The proposals cover select states with limited medical cannabis programs but exclude others with more comprehensive laws. Prior drug policy reform amendments were blocked by the GOP-controlled House Rules Committee.
