The University of New York/Buffalo received a $715,000 Federal grant, entitled: “Use of exercise to reduce young adult marijuana use there is an app for that”

Not. kidding.

Via CNS News: Push-Ups or Pot? Gov’t Spends $715K on Marijuana App

….The program aims to develop and study a smartphone app promoting exercise as an alternative to marijuana use.

The project includes intervention for young marijuana users between the ages of 18 and 25 that consists of four intervention sessions, “as well as a smartphone application (app) that promotes exercise/physical activity (EA) as an alternative to MJ (marijuana) use,” according to the project grant description.

“The EA, which will be designed to specifically appeal to young adults, will provide a readily-accessible, flexible, and convenient platform for personalized information and reminders that promote exercise/PA as a positive alternative to MJ use in ongoing daily life.”

So, “Young Adults,” when you get the urge to smoke pot, just check out the app, and hit the gym instead.

Yeah, that’ll work….

    I’m guessing that the handing out free Obama phones program has hit a downturn the last couple of years. Solution: Develop apps that will be pre-installed in 2nd generation O-phones. And this is the first app that they thought of for their target audience. Must make Big Brother ubiquitous.

    That app might have helped me if I hadn’t swapped my Obamaphone for a bag of pot.

    All this squandering of taxdollars in an attempt to legitimize the president’s regular use of pot and other illegal drugs in our WH.
