PARTICIPANTS NEEDED FOR MEDICAL MARIJUANA MIGRATION/RELOCATION RESEARCH
PATIENTS AND CAREGIVERS WELCOME
Wisconsin to Michigan Medicinal Movement
Participants are needed for an undergraduate research study that is being conducted by a student/staff team specializing in geography at the University of Wisconsin Fox-Valley.
We will be looking to conduct our research in the form of a single, semi-structured interview with medical marijuana patients and caregivers; mainly those who migrated internally for political-medicinal relief. By studying the migration of medical marijuana patients to Michigan, we hope to contribute our results to the discussion on marijuana law reform, as well as the geography of health related circumstances in general.
Participation in this study will provide researchers with the information necessary to examine the factors leading to interstate medical migration for access to marijuana, as well as the various cultural, social and economic impacts resulting from the choice to relocate. Participants will never be identified in this study ever, in any way, any time – except by a participant identification number – and will remain completely anonymous in perpetuity.
Benefits for participants include personal reflection and scientific contribution, and indirectly it could allow the patients to move back into Wisconsin if the research convinces legislators to move forward on policy formation regarding the medicinal uses of marijuana.
