Dear Ms. Moore:

Your letter to the Secretary of the Department of Health and Human Services regarding cultivating Cannabis has been directed to this Office of the National Cancer Institute (NCI) for reply. Your letter was delayed in reaching us, and we hope this has not been an inconvenience.

At this time, NCI is not supporting studies of Cannabis. You may wish to pursue your interest in growing Cannabis with the Department of Agriculture.

We hope this suggestion is helpful.

Sincerely yours,

Christy Thomsen Chief, Public Inquiries Office of Cancer Communications
