Want $3,000 A Week to Smoke Weed?

Researchers are searching for test subjects who are willing to participate in a national clinical study of marijuana.
The “guinea pigs” in the study will be required to use marijuana, as part of a government investigation into “marijuana addiction.”
The National Institute on Drug Abuse has recently joined forces with the Behavioral Health Service in Pickens County, South Carolina as part of this research.
Their aim is to help develop an investigational drug that they believe will stop the desire to smoke marijuana – ultimately ending the fictional scourge of “marijuana addiction.”
“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 study proposal reads.
Subjects who are approved will be paid $3,000 a week to use the herb.
The Pickens County facility, in conjunction with six others across the United States, will seek to discover if the over-the-counter supplement N-acetylcysteine, has the power to break “addiction” to the plant.
In the past, the supplement has been used as a treatment for schizophrenia and gambling addiction.
“This is one of the first very promising medications for marijuana dependency,” lead researcher Kevin Gray said with a straight face. “It’s an exciting development.”
What do you think? Would you get involved in this study?
