UCLA Cannabis Research Initiative

Volunteer

The UCLA Cannabis Research Initiative (UCLA-CRI) is one of the first academic programs in the world dedicated to the study of cannabis. Despite unprecedented access to cannabis, over half a century of research restrictions and limited funding have contributed to a lack of scientific knowledge about cannabis, particularly in regards to the potential therapeutic use. While our initial focus and priority is to investigate the potential therapeutic uses and harms of cannabis, our mission is the interdisciplinary study of all facets of cannabis’ effect onsociety, including legal, economic, and social impact. The UCLA-CRI will provide timely education, research, and service to properly lead public policy and public health decisions regarding cannabis.
