    The study also uses “interventions” as “treatment models” for monkeys who have been taught to use drugs.
    “Goals of the proposed research are to use a rhesus monkey model of drug abuse, to study factors affecting vulnerability to drug abuse and to evaluate behavioral and pharmacological treatment interventions.

    It's 3.6 million over a decade. Which translates to what? An average of about six people working on the various studies over the years?
    I may be wrong.

    Well what are you going to put in the books? Perhaps some thing learned / observed from research?

    If private companies want to do this and get the OK, fine with me, but not with our cash.

    Technically, wouldn't any Kenyan president be the most expensive in history?

    As the first one.

    Or were you referring to ACTUAL Kenya's president?

    Sorry, conservative Newspeak has gotten kind of confusing as it attempts to deal with the Tea Party mistake. And the Ryan mistake. Followed by the Newt mistake. Etc., etc., etc..

    Do they really need 3.6 million to know that using PCP, methamphetamine (METH), heroin, and cocaine has effect on your behavior and body?
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    My question was 'what was the benefit?', not 'what was the overall cost'. As for 'evaluate behavioral and pharmacological treatment interventions'... just because the physiological responses are 'similar' to humans, doesn't mean the treatments would ahve a similar effect, or that the psychological components would have a similar effect on humans either.

    It was a huge waste of money.
