"Why did Harry Reid vote in favor of giving cocaine to monkeys? Doesn’t he know that this is an issue specifically reserved to the states, by the 10th amendment?" Why Is Harry Reid Giving His Monkey Friends All The Good Drugs?Wonkette continues: "This research was highlighted in a report that John McCain and Jim Coburn wrote about wasteful stimulus spending, since the only thing those guys hate more than science is paying for science." The research in question is being done by the Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center. They are studying cocaine addiction and the incidences of relapse. They weren't going to use monkeys at first, but they found out there are a few pesky ethical issues with having humans as subjects.
