+ - Using crowdfunding for medical/health research?

Submitted by AugstWest
AugstWest (79042) writes "It can be difficult to get some things approved or legalized in the the US because of their lack of patentability — Stevia, a natural, non-caloric sweetener comes to mind, as do things like therapeutic MDMA research, cannabis research, etc. In a world of FUD, would it be possible to crowdfund real research that would be trusted by the FDA and their ilk? Is there a way to drive this sort of research through existing laboratories, or would new infrastructure need to be built?"
