Marijuana researcher loses appeal to keep University of Arizona job

TUCSON, Ariz. — A fired University of Arizona professor who was studying
to effects of medical marijuana on military veterans suffering from
post-traumatic stress disorder has lost an appeal to regain her job.

Suzanne Sisley was let go last month because funding for part of the work she
did with the medical school was running out and because the telemedicine program
she worked with is shifting direction, the university said in a letter. Sisley
claims she was targeted by conservative state legislators who disapproved of her

Sisley had federal approval to conduct the controlled study.

Sisley and her supporters will ask the Arizona Board of Regents to help her
find a new home for the study. She is hoping to work with Arizona State
University or Northern Arizona University.
