Newshawks: THC research results in experimental obesity pill

Researchers say an experimental pill that helps people lose weight and then keep it off is a “wonder drug.” Not just for its weight-saving effects, but also because it appears to cut the risk of diabetes and even help people quit smoking. The breakthrough comes after researchers found that smoking marijuana triggered a “switch” in the brain that made the smoker get the “munchies.” That led scientists to theorize the two urges were linked through the same regulatory system.
