Medical marijuana research for vets halted

TUCSON, Ariz. — The firing of a University of Arizona faculty member has
halted the research of medical marijuana as a treatment for post-traumatic
stress disorder.

Dr. Suzanne Sisley was set to begin the only federally-approved research into
cannabis as treatment for military veterans who suffer from PTSD.

Sisley was let go from the university last month. She is appealing the
decision.

Medical marijuana advocates say her firing means much-needed research is being
put on hold.
