Working under a competitive contract with the National Institute on Drug Abuse, the University of Mississippi School of Pharmacy, a world-renowned research institution, supplies high-quality marijuana and its constituents to the NIDA Drug Supply Program, which provides them to researchers studying their harmful and beneficial effects.
Recent state legislations have prompted questions related to the use of marijuana as medicine. The University of Mississippi School of Pharmacy does not advocate smoking Cannabis for "medicinal" purposes or for any other purposes. However, research has demonstrated that active chemicals derived from the plant may be effectively utilized in the development of prescription drugs, which could be advanced to clinical practice according to current pharmaceutical laws and regulations.
