A UMD smoking cessation research project needs volunteers, but there is a caveat:  the participant must also use marijuana regularly.

The University of Minnesota Medical School-Duluth Campus is looking for volunteers to take part in a stop-smoking program that is looking into the part that stress plays in cessation of the habit; part of that research also will study marijuana use.

Interested participants must be 18+, regular tobacco smokers - interested in quitting, in good health, and must also use marijuana. Because marijuana is an illegal drug, a Certificate of Confidentiality from the National Institute on Drug Abuse will be used to protect participant information.

Participants will be compensated for their efforts.

If interested, call 218-726-8623.
