Wanted: Students to take cocaine – University asks for volunteers to take drugs for study

 

A prestigious London university has asked for volunteers to take part in an experiment where they will be required to take cocaine.

 

An email sent by a professor at King’s College London asks for ‘healthy male volunteers, 25 – 40 years of age, to take part in a clinical study involving nasal administration of cocaine.’  The email, which was sent on Thursday afternoon to hundreds of postgraduate and undergraduate students at the university, is in seven sections, each titled with a question.  Under the section, ‘What will happen?’, the email states: ‘After cocaine administration, repeated biological samples (blood, urine, hair, sweat, oral fluid) will be taken to compare and investigate how cocaine and its metabolites are spread through the human body.’
