The Federal Government Is Hiring Professional Joint Rollers

Despite the federal government's aversion to marijuana, they still often hire people to research the drug. And now they may even be hiring people to roll them joints.

The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) recently published a posting looking for a business that can help them in their cannabis research. The job mostly revolves around producing and analyzing the chemical compounds in marijuana and nicotine, but there's also another interesting qualification. The NIDA also wants a business that can roll a joint. Here's what the posting said:

"Manufacture standardized marijuana cigarettes within a range of varying concentrations of delta-9-THC and analyze strength and stability of them at various intervals while having the capability to maintain a secure shipping facility and to ship marijuana cigarettes to research investigators."

 That's right, they want you to roll them some joint and then ship them to their "research investigators."

Also, the term "marijuana cigarettes," always seems weird. It's like what my grandma would say when she's talking about why she doesn't like rock bands from the 1970's. Can't the NIDA just call them joints like everyone else?

So if you know someone who's good at rolling, then you may be able to get them a nice cushy government job.

Derived from the part of the cannabis plant that doesn't get you “high” like THC, cannabidiol (CBD) is typically used for health reasons instead of for recreational purposes, and has been found to be especially useful for treating symptoms of Parkinson’s disease. A challenging neurodegenerative disorder, Parkinson’s causes a combination of motor and non-motor symptoms — such as tremors, weakness, stiffness, dizziness, anxiety and sleeplessness — that affect daily life. CBD, typically taken in oil form, has the potential to relieve these symptoms, improving sleep, reducing inflammation and more, which can profoundly help the more than 10 million people across the world suffering.
