There are dozens of varieties of marijuana plants here. When the pot is harvested, it is stored in a high security vault. Each bin contains about 30 pounds of marijuana, with dozens of bins in the vault. The marijuana cigarettes are then sent out to research facilities across the country.
Scientists research the effects of the marijuana cigarettes on aids, cancer, and glaucoma patients and test for pain relief and appetite stimulation, just to name a few trials.

Materials researchers at Penn State University have reported the highest known breakdown strength for a bulk glass ever measured. Breakdown strength, along with dielectric constant, determines how much energy can be stored in an insulating material before it fails and begins to conduct electricity.
