Researchers are currently searching for a legion of stoners to participate in a national clinical study… the only problem is, these stoner guinea pigs must have a willful desire to finally end the dreaded dance with a fictitious vice known as marijuana addiction.

The National Institute on Drug Abuse recently commissioned the Behavioral Health Service in Pickens County, South Carolina to conduct research on an investigational drug believed to curb the desire to get high.

“Do you smoke marijuana? Have you used in the past 30 days? If so, and you are 18 to 50 years old, you may qualify for a research study evaluating an investigational drug to help with marijuana cessation.”

The Pickens County facility along with six others across the nation intend to put stoners under the microscope in an attempt to find out if N-acetylcysteine, an over the counter supplement that was once studied as a treatment for schizophrenia and gambling addiction, has the power to put the dreaded marijuana junky into recovery.

“This is one of the first very promising medications for marijuana dependency,” said lead researcher Kevin Gray. “It’s an exciting development.”

Interestingly, you can already buy this supposed “investigational” anti-stoner drug in the vitamin aisle at your local CVS for less than $20.

Researchers say they hope to scam about 60 weed lovers into participating in the Pickens County study, with the six other facilities looking to recruit as many as 300.
