The House Judiciary Committee approved a bill to dramatically increase the number of licenses available for marijuana producers growing for scientific studies. 

The Medical Cannabis Research Act, sponsored by U.S. Republican Representative Matt Gaetz of Florida, would require U.S. Attorney Jeff Sessions and his successors to license two more producers within a year, and three more every year after, if passed. 

Currently, only the University of Mississippi is federally legally allowed to grow marijuana for scientific purposes, however most recipients complain of delays and poor product quality.
The bill would also allow health care providers of the Department of Veterans Affairs to provide recommendations to veterans to participate in federally-approved cannabis clinical trials.
A full house vote has yet to be scheduled.
