One of the classic cannabis fables in Washington state is that during the 90s a certain university’s medical research lab had a clone stolen. This clone is known as UW Purple, which may give you a hint towards which university this was. The problem behind this story is that universities can actually lose their federal funding for doing any type of research on cannabis. In a bipartisan letter, led by both a democrat and a republican, would change just that. If passed, this would open doors for university medical teams to look into cannabis and research the science behind the plant.
