Fired medical marijuana researcher loses appeal to keep university job

A fired University of Arizona professor who was studying the effects of medical marijuana on military veterans suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder has lost an appeal to regain her job.

Suzanne Sisley was let go last month because funding for part of the work she did with the medical school was running out and because the telemedicine program she worked with is shifting direction, the university said in a letter. Sisley claims she was targeted by conservative state legislators who disapproved of her research.

Sisley had federal approval to conduct the controlled study.

Sisley and her supporters will ask the Arizona Board of Regents to help her find a new home for the study. She is hoping to work with Arizona State University or Northern Arizona University.
