Utah Republican Sen. Orrin Hatch announced he is introducing a medical marijuana research bill Wednesday and his statement was filled with marijuana-related puns.
“It’s high time to address research into medical marijuana,” Hatch said in a statement. “To be blunt, we need to remove the administrative barriers preventing legitimate research into medical marijuana, which is why I’ve decided to roll out the MEDS Act.”
“I have high hopes that this bipartisan initiative can be a kumbaya moment for both parties,” he added.
