Seeking marijuana/cannabis users for research study in the New River and Roanoke Valley areas

From: Virginia Tech Transportation Institutue

The Virginia Tech Transportation Institute (VTTI) has been conducting transportation safety research studies all over the country for over 15 years. VTTI has two new research studies in the New River and Roanoke Valley areas called ADAS and Pioneer. Please see below for the eligibility requirements to dually enroll in both studies:

  • Are you a marijuana/cannabis user?
  • Do you drive a 2018 or newer vehicle with new technology such as Lane Keeping Assistance or Adaptive Cruise Control that automatically slows with traffic?
  • Are you willing to routinely use your smart phone to collect data on substance use through VTTI’s free and confidential app?

If so, you may be eligible to participate in a naturalistic driving study focused on how people drive and interact with newer vehicle technologies, such as driver assistance systems (ADAS Study), as well as a secondary study on substance use (Pioneer Study).

All data for these studies are strictly confidential and participant privacy is protected, both locally and federally, by a Certificate of Confidentiality issued by the National Institute of Health.

Participants will have the option to participate in an enrollment period of 3-months and be compensated $500. You may be given the option to extend your participation. Please see the website below or call VTTI for full compensation details.

Interested? Please contact us at 540-231-1583 or and reference the “Pioneer VA” study in your message.

All inquiries welcome! <IRB #19-785>, <IRB#19-445>
