Arizona Psych Prof says fired over PTSD/marijuana research.
"(Reuters)—A University of Arizona researcher hoping to explore whether marijuana can help veterans with post–traumatic stress disorder was fired in a move that she said on Tuesday was payback for her high–profile advocacy regarding the work."
Reuters Health, July 01, 2014.

"For children, stress can go a long way. A little bit provides a platform for learning, adapting and coping. But a lot of it — chronic, toxic stress like poverty, neglect and physical abuse — can have lasting negative impacts. A team of researchers recently showed these kinds of stressors, experienced in early life, might be changing the parts of developing children's brains responsible for learning, memory and the processing of stress and emotion."
Science Daily, June 27, 2014.
