This Federal Study Is Paying Big Money Per Week For People To Consume Cannabis
This is all in the name of science but it is an interesting approach to say the least.
According to the Pain Physician Journal, 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 aim of the study, which will be conducted in multiple locations over the US, is to determine if the drug can relieve stress-related disorders while still letting users retain normal function in their lives. And subjects will be paid $3,000 for each week they complete.
"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."
To conduct the study, you would have to give them six months of your time. During this period, you would be performing various everyday activities such as cleaning, watching TV and reading. Throughout all of this, participants will be evaluated by medical staff.
Researchers are looking to gather more than 300 recruits into their facilities before the study begins. These recruits will be paid 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, however, it's believed that will change soon.
