    Dope-Smoking, Menstruating Monkey Study Got $3.6 Million in Tax Dollars

    The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), a division of the federal government’s National Institutes of Health (NIH), has spent $3,634,807 over the past decade funding research that involves getting monkeys to smoke and drink drugs such as PCP, methamphetamine (METH), heroin, and cocaine and then studying their behavior, including during different phases of the female monkeys’ menstrual cycles.

    All they had to do was go to a few Grateful Dead concerts instead of wasting our cash on this monkey business.

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

    Yeah! I mean, let's not actually look into why they would research this and what sort of information might be gathered from it! Let's just go ahead and assume it's a waste of money! That's the fiscally responsible thing to do.

    little bull**** like this adds up. That 3.6 million could have bought some books, fixed a building or something else more useful. It kind of reminds of another useless study that I just saw on tv today.

    "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"

    Ok. Exactly what was the benefit to this study?

    Since it was about finding about what is a vulnerability to drug addiction and what techniques are useful to diminish drug addiction behaviors, I don't think that following the Dead would have really been an option. Also, the Dead are more since Jerry left us.

    Further, I am not sure that finding out the information about drug addiction is of no value.
    I may be wrong.

    I doubt that this study was more than datamining--which is something that the CDC is good at fortunately. Datamining is what discovered AIDS. W/o it, who knows how much longer and how many more infections would have occurred before people knew it existed.
    I may be wrong.

    Re: Dope-Smoking, Menstruating Monkey Study Got $3.6 Million in Tax Dollars

    Precursor research on drug-using monkeys, also funded by NIDA, discovered that after smoking cocaine monkeys exhibited “dilated pupils and slightly agitated, hyperactive behavior”—which helped researchers conclude that the “physiological effects” of cocaine on monkeys “were similar to those reported in studies of human subjects.”
    No ****, Sherlock.

    “Behavior therapy is the cornerstone of drug addiction treatments, particularly those in cases where FDA-approved medications do not exist (e.g., cocaine),” said the NIH. “Unfortunately, such treatments have been only partially successful, suggesting that additional research is needed so that we can develop more effective treatments. The results of this study will inform this process.”
    Yes. The fact that the physiological responses are similar between primates and humans certainly proves that the psychological responses will also be similar

    What a ****ing waste of tax payer money.

    It was much more than mining other studies. Read the OP article.
