Federal Government Needs More Marijuana for Research Studies

Federal Government Needs More Marijuana for Research Studies

TheStreet (May 9, 2014) — The National Institute for Drug Abuse, or NIDA, has asked the Drug Enforcement Agency for more marijuana. NIDA has requested an increase from 21,000 grams to 650,000 grams, or roughly 1,433 pounds of pot. As of January, NIDA has funded 28 active grants related to therapeutic uses of marijuana in six different disease categories covering AIDS, pain, schizophrenia, seizures and hard drug withdrawal. But NIDA frequently contradicts on the subject of marijuana: a NIDA-funded study at Yale looking at cannabis as a treatment for schizophrenia warned that marijuana could worsen the condition. NIDA gets its pot from The University of Mississippi, the only legal marijuana farm that grows pot for the government. The request is now open to the public for comment. Video provided by TheStreet

Sniffing Out Schizophrenia Using Nose Cell Samples

Reuters (June 26, 2013) — The human nose may hold the key to diagnosing schizophrenia, according to a team of US-Israeli researchers. Extracting nerve cells from as close as possible to the brain, in the upper nasal cavity of the olfactory epithelium (OE), via a nasal swab, could allow the first ever biological diagnosis for schizophrenia, paving the way for early therapeutic intervention.
