Get Paid $18,000 By NASA To Smoke Marijuana

Get Paid To Smoke Weed by NASA, but Not Really

Check out this brand new experiment where you can get paid to smoke weed by NASA for $18,000.00. It is not real, but the idea sounds real nice. There have been programs where people have been paid to sample cannabis products, however NASA is not one of them.

CannaSOS reports:

Usually at some point in the day (and for some of us, multiple points) many of us find ourselves wishing we could abandon our responsibilities to return back to our beds to live out the rest of the day under a quiet refuge of blankets and smoke weed. Despite the guilt of chronic laziness, a day in bed sounds pretty darn relaxing—if only we could financially support ourselves by doing so.

Perhaps getting paid to smoke weed will become a more common occurrence as marijuana legalization continues to spread. However, the idea that NASA will embrace marijuana is not as far fetched as you might think. Since we are talking fantasy in this segment, have you read The Martian?  Andy Weir, the author, not only made a fantastic fiction, but he also tied in the realities of what it would take to get to Mars and live on it based off of his research about what NASA has learned about space travel thus far.

One of the most important perspectives to understand about space travel is that NASA needs to make it as simple as they possibly can. Understand, space travel requires the most advanced and innovative technologies discovered by people, but achieving specific objectives such as producing oxygenated air, temperature control and very importantly, food, needs to be as easily achievable for astronauts in order to make their survival as likely as possible. In other words, they need to grow food that is easy to grow, robust and produces an abundance of the nutrition they need, such as potatoes. Maybe even weed.

The Cannabis sativa plant includes marijuana’s cousin, hemp. Hemp actually does have nutritional value, but beyond that, it can be used to create all sorts of durable industrial products like clothing and rope which could be quite useful to people trying to persist on a planet as void of life and resources as Mars. Not to mention the fact that CBD oil is helping people with chronic pain, anxiety and get some sleep. Marijuana could be used to help astronauts cope with the intense pressure they would feel living on another planet, pain and maybe even loneliness. They do not call marijuana “weed” just for the sake of calling it weed. It is a very viable option for NASA to help astronauts survive on another planet. Don’t think they are not considering it, even though they are not offering for anyone to get paid to smoke weed. In the meantime, let’s keep the fantasy going.

Turns out, NASA might have the answer we’re all looking for—although it might require a little more “relaxation” than originally imagined. NASA is currently looking for volunteers to participate in their “Rest Studies”, in which participants will have to spend 70 straight days in bed and smoke different types of cannabis, receiving $18,000 for the period of aggressive bodily atrophy.

Participants are allowed to read books, Skype, play games, as well as smoke cannabis throughout the duration of the study. Pretty much anything is fair game, so long as you remain in bed, earning a cool $1,200 per week…

So what are the exact purposes of these studies?

The experiments are designed to find ways of preserving astronauts’ health and safety during periods of extended space travel. “Head down” bed rest is a good way of simulating travel through zero gravity space. Think about it, zero gravity means zero weight or strain on your muscles. They also want to understand how marijuana will influence on the body.

It’s a more accessible way of analyzing the bodily changes that occur during space travel.

This study is designed to achieve three core tasks:

1) Understanding how one’s changing physiology in space may affect the process of certain missions.

2) Understanding the impact of one’s physiological state on their ability to perform in particular tasks.

3) Preparing countermeasures to combat any impairment that these physiological conditions may impose.

Within the experiment there are two study groups: exercising and non-exercising. While the exercising group will be subject to exercise training (on special equipment to maintain the laying down position and smoke cannabis), the non-exercising group will remain completely at ease.

The entire duration of the study actually lasts between 97 and 105 days, depending on whether you’re a non-exercising or an exercising subject, respectively. For the first 13 days for non-exercising subjects and 21 days for exercising subjects, you’re able to move freely (in and out of bed) within the bed rest facility.

However, after this period you will be prohibited from leaving the bed for the next 70 days, aside from a few specified tests, where you must lay with your head back and feet up.
Throughout the entire duration of the study, you will be subject to bone, muscle and heart tests, as well as tests of your circulatory and nervous systems, your nutritional condition, and your body’s capacity to fight off infections.

Aliens, get paid to smoke weed, when will cannabis be legal everywhere

So is it worth it?

Although spending two months in bed would realistically be excruciating, at least you can rest easily knowing you’re making the sacrifice of grueling laziness for the purpose of furthering human space exploration. This is the only time you could claim to have helped send the first astronauts to Mars by doing absolutely nothing but sitting on your ass.

Another article surfaced today for patients to get paid to smoke marijuana by ASU. It may not be $18,000 but it’s worth it if you like to smoke weed.
