Dope-Smoking, Menstruating Monkey Study Got $3.6 Million

It's a good thing that Americans aren't suffering through a recession or anything. Otherwise this kind of funding for a study on dope fiend menstruating monkeys would seem pretty outrageous.

CNS News reports:
The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), a division of the federal government’s National Institutes of Health (NIH), has spent $3,634,807 over the past decade funding research that involves getting monkeys to smoke and drink drugs such as PCP, methamphetamine (METH), heroin, and cocaine and then studying their behavior, including during different phases of the female monkeys’ menstrual cycles.

The study also uses “interventions” as “treatment models” for monkeys who have been taught to use drugs.


  1. I would love to see a monkey "intervention"....NOT! Paging Dr. Drew!

  2. Must be a Democrat monkey.

  3. Menstruating is sort of tame for the Democrats....typically the study would be on dope fiend masterbating monkeys.....That topic is more to their liking....
