Would You Sacrifice For Science?

Did anyone else ever rent their body for science experiments in college? Those of us who did probably now wish we'd gone to UCSD, where their Center for Medical Cannabis Research recently came out with a study showing that moderate doses of pot can relieve moderate pain. While my preferred method of menstrual cramp relief has always been a hot pack, 3 Advil and a bottle of wine, I certainly wouldn't mind getting paid to find out how effective this method might prove — though, naturally, they seem to be more interested in, like, cancer and stuff. Don't they understand? Oh, wait, never mind. This is why we need more women in the sciences. [Washington Post, CMCR]
