Federal Study Will Pay You $3,000 Per Week to Consume Cannabis

The United States National Research Center (NRC) has been commissioned by the National Institute of Drug Abuse (NIDA) to conduct comprehensive research evaluating the effects of cannabis on the human body.

The research, which will take part in seven facilities across the nation, is intended to determine whether or not cannabis can be used to relieve stress and stress-related disorders, while allowing consumers of the plant to maintain normal function in their lives.

“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’,” says lead researcher Michael Gregory. “It’s an exciting new study that may push the legality of marijuana to all 50 states.”

For the research, participants will be required to stay at the facility for six months (making it immediately un-doable for many if not most people), while performing various everyday activities such as cleaning, watching TV and reading, while also regularly consuming cannabis. During all of this, participants will be evaluated by medical staff.

Researchers looking to gather over 300 recruits into their facilities before the study begins; these recruits will be paid $3,000 for every week they take part in the study.

At the moment, the NRC isn’t accepting new applicants for those wanting to take part in the study, though that’s expected to change in the near future; we’ll update this article when it does.

An Aphrodisiac for SAM

from opinions elsewhere... Actually, the true object of the study was to find out just how many stupid potheads would fall for such an obvious work of fiction.
This Opiner probably wants some feedback.

[Editorís Note: NIDA has reached out to us to let us know that, in fact, they arenít currently conducting the above-mentioned study, as has been misreported by a number of media outlets. We apologize for the confusion.]

The study aims to determine the effectiveness in using cannabis to relieve stress.

No, The Feds Won’t Pay You $3,000 Per Week to Smoke Marijuana
The federal government’s top drug research agency really wants you to know: It will not pay you thousands of dollars a week to get high and watch TV all day long for six months straight, despite what several online marijuana websites are reporting.

In a series of tweets on Tuesday, the National Institute on Drug Abuse broke the news to excitable stoners who had hoped to take advantage of the opportunity to cash in on their love for cannabis.

Several online marijuana news sites fell for the prank too, including Green Rush Daily and The Joint Blog, which quoted made-up researcher Michael Gregory as saying the study “will finally reveal the answer of the age old acquisition that stoners are ‘Just Lazy.’ It’s an exciting new study that may push the legality of marijuana to all 50 states.”

To its credit, The Joint Blog did later add a correction to the bottom of its post after NIDA contacted the site to debunk the story. But the false headline, “Federal Study Will Pay You $3,000 Per Week to Consume Cannabis” remains plastered across the top of the article for now.
