University of Arizona physician Sue Sisley will now be able to continue her on-campus research of the medicinal benefits of marijuana because the State just passed a law allowing universities to study marijuana.
“We’re going to be looking at combat veterans who have treatment-resistent PTSD,” said Sisley. “And we’re going to be examining five different dosages of both smoke and vaporized marijuana.”
Sisley also stated: “I think that’s the real purpose of a public university is to be able to examine subjects that are hard or controversial or complex in an environment that isn’t plagued by politics.”
Sisley has already been approved by one federal agency and given the go-ahead from the University of Arizona, but still needs sign-off with the Drug Enforcement Administration.
