Pot for alcoholism

Research published in a recent issue of the Journal of Cannabis Therapeutics describes marijuana’s effectiveness in treating people for alcohol addiction. A study by Dr Tod Mikuriya found that 92 Northern Californian patients who used cannabis to treat their booze addiction reported “very effective” or “effective” results.
Nine patients totally abstained from alcohol for at least a year and “attributed their success to cannabis,” while others reported that they drank much less. Patients who discontinued cannabis use reported that alcohol cravings and drinking increased toward previous levels.
