Front Range Biosciences, an agricultural biotech company, has just announced that it will be sending cell cultures of the hemp plant to the International Space Station on a resupply trip in March 2020. (Hemp is a variety of the cannabis plant that contains relatively little THC, and was declassified as a Schedule 1 drug just last year.) The purpose of the project is to see whether or not these cells develop any genetic mutations in those conditions, and once they return, scientists will analyze their DNA to see if they have changed at all. (The company is also sending coffee plants, but who cares about that when weed in space is a thing).
