MAPS Submits Revised Marijuana/PTSD Protocol to FDA

On March 15, 2011, MAPS submitted to the FDA the revised protocol for its planned study of smoked and/or vaporized marijuana for PTSD in war veterans. In a February 9 conference call, the FDA acknowledged that we had successfully addressed their concerns about subjects diverting unused marijuana, and requested that we submit this revised protocol. If after reviewing the revised protocol the FDA decides to allow the study to proceed, the next step will be to move the protocol through a complicated review process with the National Institute on Drug Abuse and the Public Health Service.
