A National Research Center has been commissioned by the National Institute of Drug Abuse to conduct research on the effects of marijuana on the body.
According to researchers, the facility, along with six other facilities across the nation, intend to put stoners under the microscope in an attempt to find out if marijuana can relieve stress while still being able to function a normal life.
“This is one of the first, very promising studies, that will finally reveal the answer of the age old acquisition that stoners are ‘Just Lazy’,” said lead researcher Michael Gregory. “It’s an exciting new study that may push the legality of marijuana to all 50 states.”
Each participant will be required to stay at the facility for six months, while doing various chores such as cleaning, reading, and watching TV, as they are evaluated by medical staff. Researchers are hoping to gather over 300 recruits into their facilities to begin this study.
The National Institute on Drug Abuse recently commissioned the Behavioral Health Service in Pickens County, South Carolina to conduct research on an investigational drug believed to curb the desire to get high.
“Do you smoke marijuana? Have you used in the past 30 days? If so, and you are 18 to 50 years old, you may qualify for a research study evaluating an investigational drug to help with marijuana cessation.”
The Pickens County facility along with six others across the nation intend to put stoners under the microscope in an attempt to find out if N-acetylcysteine, an over the counter supplement that was once studied as a treatment for schizophrenia and gambling addiction, has the power to put the dreaded marijuana junky into recovery.
“This is one of the first very promising medications for marijuana dependency,” said lead researcher Kevin Gray. “It’s an exciting development.”
