California College Paying People to Smoke Weed and Virtually Drive In other to better understand the ways cannabis use impacts traffic safety
In an effort to better understand the ways cannabis use impacts traffic safety, UC San Diego is conducting a virtual driving study that tests how driving high impacts the ability to respond to common challenges on the road way. The study, the largest of its kind, and is being conducted by the college’s Center for Medicinal Cannabis Research. And to make sure they’re attracting the right candidates, researchers are paying people to smoke weed for the study.
And for the study’s participants, paid to drive while high. The CMCR is giving participants $50 for an initial appointment. But when participants come for the full day assessment, UCSD is prepared to drop an additional $180.
