Phoenix – A fired University of Arizona professor has received a $2 million grant from the state of Colorado to continue her research of marijuana's effects on veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder.

The Arizona Republic reported Wednesday that Sue Sisley says she can now pursue her study without relying on an Arizona university lab.

Sisley says the study will be split between participating veterans in Arizona and at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore.

UA officials said in a letter in June that Sisley was let go because funding for part of the work she did with the medical school was running out and other factors.

Sisley says her termination was because of her connection to a recall attempt of a lawmaker who killed legislation that could have funded her research.
