Now Hiring: Weed Smokers

Researchers in Washington state are looking for volunteers to smoke marijuana as part of a study to develop a breathalyzer to detect the drug.

Washington State University is conducting the study. Under state law, drivers with 5 nanograms of active tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) in their blood can be charged with driving under the influence.

Participants begin with a blood test and a mouth swab as part of initial testing. Then, they purchase marijuana of their choice from a state-licensed retail store and smoke it in the privacy of their own home. Cabs would then drive the participant to a local hospital to complete the testing.

Volunteers must be 21 to participate and will be paid $30 an hour for the first hour and $10 for each additional hour.

Any takers?
