Dr. Sue Sisley’s PTSD Research in Danger of Shutdown
Author: Monterey Bud 01/09/2017 - 17:02:00

On Thursday, the Military Times reported a PTSD study conducted in Arizona is in real danger of being fragged by the Veterans Administration (VA) – due to a lack of participation by the department. 

More interested in maintaining the status quo (and the vicious cycle of addiction), VA officials have been overtly reluctant to discuss the Arizona research with local physicians or veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder. 

As a direct result, Dr. Sue Sisley’s PTSD study now faces a critical October 1 deadline. 

Intended to “provide definitive answers on the medical benefits of marijuana for wounded veterans,” Sisley noted, if no new participants step forward by the looming deadline, the study would either need to “shut down,” or the study’s parameters would have to change to include “non-veterans.” 

The alternatives do not represent a viable option for Dr. Sisley: “It was a seven-year saga with federal regulations just to get the study to this point – I don’t want to see that lost.”

But Curt Cashour, the VA Press Secretary, views the study’s lack of participants from a slightly different perspective.
