Psilocybin Study for Tobacco Gets Federal Funding

A researcher at Johns Hopkins University received a U01 grant from the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) to fund a multi-site study on psilocybin for tobacco addiction, which will take place at Johns Hopkins, New York University, and the University of Alabama at Birmingham.
