The U.S. Department of Justice and the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) have proposed to significantly increase the amount of cannabis that can be legally grown in the U.S. for research purposes. Additionally, they plan to reduce the number of opioids manufactured in the US moving into 2019.

The 2019 Aggregate Production Quota for Schedule I and II Controlled Substances was signed by the Acting Administrator on August 14 and revealed that the DEA is proposing a production quota of 2,450,000 grams of marijuana for 2019.

The figure represents a fivefold increase from the amount of marijuana authorized to be produced by the DEA throughout this year — 443,680 grams.
