Cancer and HIV Patients Needed for Pot Study

From the Marijuana Policy Project:

Two New Medical Marijuana Studies Seek Patients in San Francisco. One study will evaluate whether smoking marijuana reduces pain in people with HIV-related peripheral neuropathy.

The second study is for cancer patients and will evaluate whether marijuana, when used with MS Contin, will have an effect on pain relief -- and whether marijuana reduces the side effects of MS Contin, which include nausea and/or vomiting. Patients must have certain types of cancer to be eligible.
