Potheads Less Likely to be Fat

I fucking knew it. Fuck all of you non-smokers with your stereotyping. There is science to back up the stoners now you sober fatties.

From Newser:
(Newser) – Marijuana users are less likely to be obese, according to a new study that would seem to fly in the face of the legendary munchies that are almost synonymous with pot. Researchers were so surprised by the results that they examined a second sample, only to come up with the same findings. Ultimately, the researchers used two national surveys involving a total of 50,000 people to come up with their results, LiveScience reports. 

The study found that while 22% to 25% of non-tokers were obese, just 16% to 17% of those who self-reported using cannabis were obese. And obesity became less common the more frequently cannabis was used: Of those who used marijuana at least three days a week, just 14% were obese. The reason for the link is not clear. “I would be surprised that cannabis use is associated with a higher rate of physical activity, but this cannot be ruled out,” says one researcher, who notes that despite the results, marijuana use is not recommended as a weight-loss aid.

Bullshit it's not a weight-loss aid. the study speaks for itself. You gotta love scientists studying something that says that weed smokers are less likely to be fat and then they backpedal because they were probably hoping to prove that all potheads are fat good-for-nothing fucks. No, actually it is possible to do things while high. Regular users can do everything a non-smoker would do INCLUDING going to the gym and getting big.

I say smoke on people, and fuck the haters, they are just jealous fatties.
