Arizona medical marijuana patients between the ages of 18 and 30 may qualify for a paid study.
Arizona State University is gearing up to conduct a study on the immediate effects of marijuana, according to the Phoenix New Times. Participants will be compensated $95 for providing roughly 10-hours of their time.
Anyone interested in participating can contact Arizona State University to learn more about the study.
Researcher Madeline Meier is leading the study. Meier has headlined worldwide news with her work and is a leader in medical marijuana health research.
A recent study of Meier’s concluded that there wasn’t significant evidence to prove that marijuana use lowered the IQs of users ages 12 – 18.
“Findings from the two studies suggest that short-term cannabis use in adolescence probably does not harm IQ but long-term cannabis use might. The major concern is that some adolescents who use cannabis will find it difficult to quit and will develop long-term dependence on cannabis as adults, which has been found to harm cognitive function,” Meier said to the New Times.
Other research taking place at ASU includes:
- Determining links between marijuana use and psychotic-like experiences
- Links between marijuana use and vascular health
- Vaping marijuana and college students (popularity and such)
- Long-term marijuana use’s effects on neuropsychological impairment/functional impairment
