It appears Colorado State University-Pueblo didn’t get the message. The university’s Institute for Cannabis Research is still spending tax dollars on research for a private company, not on studying the efficacy of cannabis.
This from the Grand Junction Daily Sentinel’s Charles Ashby:
Despite a clear rejection by the Colorado Legislature, the state’s only cannabis research center is going ahead with developing a seed-to-sale marijuana-tracking system that no one in the industry says they want.
There has been evidence to suggest that the research and development would benefit single company, a British company known as PhytoTrack. If in fact the university is spending tax dollars on private research and development, that alone would be cause for alarm.
The health and safety aspect is the kicker. We have no idea what the impacts are of spraying cannabis with a substance for tracking purposes.
This entire project rings of a bad idea.
