Dr. Margaret (Meg) Haney is a Professor of Clinical Neurobiology, and Co-Director of the Substance Use Research Center at Columbia University. Her research focuses on the consequences of chronic marijuana use, as well as the development of novel approaches for the treatment of cocaine and marijuana dependence. She and her colleagues were one of the first to demonstrate that marijuana produces a time-dependent, pharmacologically-specific withdrawal syndrome . An additional interest is the potential therapeutic effects of marijuana and other cannabinoids. Dr. Haney is an author of more than 110 articles in peer-reviewed journals, acts as an advisory editor for Psychopharmacology, and has been a member of NIH review groups.
