The findings, published in the International Journal of Epidemiology, are contrary to the belief that marijuana users who have a serious case of the munchies will ultimately gain more weight.

“Our study builds on mounting evidence that this opposite effect occurs.”.

“Only 15% of persistent users were considered obese compared to 20% of non-users.”.
