UConn’s cannabis growing course sheds light on a plant once kept in the shadows

In a greenhouse at the bottom of Horsebarn Hill, a few plants stand much taller than the rest, the tops of their green, dissected leaves tickling the grow lights that feed them 18 hours of “sunshine” per day.

That still wasn’t enough for these hemp plants, which started to flower despite researchers’ best efforts to keep them “vegging out,” or growing in a vegetative state. Grown as part of UConn’s new course on the horticulture of cannabis — one of the first of its kind in the U.S. — these young, leggy weeds are now destined for the trash, in favor of plants that are still bud-free.

Study: Cannabis may help treat alcohol and cocaine addiction

This study should make some folks stand up and take notice.

The first question, of course, is where did these scientists find addicted rats? They created them, of course. Being an animal researcher is nasty business and condemned widely by animals lovers and advocates, but it happens every day in the interest of improving and extending the lives of humans.
