Last week the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) took steps to increase the amount of cannabis that can be legally grown in America, citing a rise in government-approved research. 

In new Federal Register filings, the DEA moved to increase the amount of marijuana grown for 2018 to 2,500 pounds, from 978, and to 5,400 pounds for 2019. 

The DEA did not provide a specific reason for the increase, but the move could be related to an effort to license more legal producers to provide the government authorized research. 

Currently in the United States, only the University of Mississippi has the federal authorization to grow marijuana for researching purposes. Many researchers however have complained that the quality of the marijuana is not good, have had to deal with delays, and getting approval to obtain the cannabis is challenging.
