Marijuana Users Less Likely To Be Obese

Published on 07/18/19 / In News & Politics

April 19 (UPI) -- The joke is that smoking marijuana can cause weight gain because users might get the munchies, but new research suggests that pot smokers weigh less. The average 5-foot-7 person who smokes marijuana weighs two pounds less than someone who does not, according to a study published in the International Journal of Epidemiology. "Over a three-year period, all participants showed a weight increase, but interestingly, those who used marijuana had less of an increase compared to those that never used," Omayma Alshaarawy, assistant professor of family medicine at Michigan State and study lead author, said in a news release.
