Sue Sisley’s PTSD Study on Viceland

From Dr. Sue Sisley March 3, 2016:

2nd episode of new VICE series is called STONED VETS.

VICELAND highlights the FDA approved cannabis/PTSD research at approx. minute 24–45.

Vice spun off into a 2nd cable channel called VICELAND/H2/HBO.

These 8 episodes are part of their new series called WEEDIQUETTE ☀️

(These vets, Ryan and Danny, are both thriving and  high-functioning on adjunctive treatment with cannabis)!

DEA APPROVALS still pending in order to finally start this FDA approved clinical trial.

On June 22, 2015, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) announced that it had eliminated the redundant Public Health Service (PHS) review process for federally regulated marijuana research, removing a significant barrier to privately funded medical marijuana research.

STILL TO COME:Sisley Viceland close-up

TBD – Local DEA inspection for Phoenix site

TBD – Federal DEA approval for entire study

TBD – Final Johns Hopkins IRB approval

TBD – Order shipment of marijuana from NIDA

TBD – Initiate study!!

This DEA approvals are basically the last hurdle in order to finally implement this Cannabis clinical trial and enroll our first veteran after six years of delays. 

Once we have our DEA schedule one licenses and DEA approval of the scientific protocol, 

then we can finalize IRB approvals and purchase cannabis study drug from NIDA/University of Mississippi.

When we have the cannabis stored safely in our lab, we can finally start screening Veteran patients.

Let me know if you have any questions!

Our account of you getting the runaround from the University of Arizona wound up on the cutting room floor as the story kept changing shape.  This is what we published in the Winter 2015/16 issue.
