Does smoking pot cause man boobs?
CNN ^ | December 5, 2013 | Dr. Anthony Youn

Posted on 12/06/2013 8:51:09 PM PST by Slings and Arrows

(CNN) -- A young man in his 20s -- let's call him George -- sits across from me in the exam room.

"Dr. Youn," he says, "I have man boobs."

I notice a not-so-unfamiliar smell wafting from his body. It's the same odor that floated my way during a rock concert I recently attended.

"How long have you had a problem with this, George?"

"Hard to say. But it seems to have gotten worse over the past year or so."

"George, the first thing you need to do is stop smoking pot. Marijuana could be causing your man boobs."

Slings, you also work in mysterious, but usually pretty humorous ways on FR.

Thanks for the ping(s).

Marijuana causing men’s boobs to grow, fast food causing penis to shrink. No wonder there’s so many gender confused people out there.

“Animal studies have shown that exposure to the active ingredient in marijuana can result in a decrease in testosterone levels, a reduction of testicular size,”

So...that explains liberal men, anyway.

I’ve never smoked anything and I’ve had them practically my entire adulthood even before I acquired a spare tire or a gut.

nearly half of men have this issue

it’s got to be that evil plant that maybe 5% of people regularly smoke!

it can’t be all the synthetic female hormones in our food/water. can’t be all the soy. no way. they make food cheap and they’re government approved for safety!

I’ll take “correlation does not necessarily equal causation”, for the win.

The article was a good piece of satire though, especially in it’s use of such terms as “active ingredient”. Which one exactly? THC or CBD? Did someone actually get paid to write this?

Despite there being little evidence, the author puts your chance of developing b@tch tits as “probably”. I find it highly amusing that a 1972 study was quoted but not the one from the National Commission on Marihuana and Drug Abuse that favored ending prohibition. Nixon, the spawn of satan he was, even tried to interfere once word got out his little study wasn’t going the way he planned. More sound judgement from the wise and honorable Richard M. Nixon.

Exactly. The smokers in college who played ultimate frisbee didn’t have that problem; the ones who played Nintendo all day and scarfed snacks did.

To: dummy; Travis McGee; Squantos

I smoked pot 15 years daily

Five kids ...two wives

Many many many many lovers(rock star numbers) until wife two whom I have been faithful to for nearly 20 years now and always will be

I’m 56 and still rut like a buck on Steele Bayou in December

Strong brow and chin and Adams apple and decent muscle tone and can still knock a man out....if he’s vulnerable..lol

And I’m usually the bravest meanest guy in the room unless matt bracken or squantos are there..

all this scare shit about pot emasculating men is just bull

Its like LSD fish babies

Something ran off with under 40 white mans balls....but it ain’t Mary Jane

Its the culture and female dominated screwl system

The obsession some here have with pot is so stupid

Have the concern trolls even ever smoked it

Risk of lethargy... apathy.... sleepiness....panic attack in the neurotic....maybe....its a short list

Drugs addle the mind....but pot is least offensive I’ve tried...including booze....and I tried all up to crack and X

and in Dixie lots and lots of right wing pot smokers and growers

As they say....deal with it

Everywhere aint Eugene

Alienating pot smokers who are pro gun...anti abortion...pro God.....pro Constitution

Is not wise....

For the record....maybe some southern folded egg not or the occasional opiate for all my broke crap is about it these days

My preferred intoxicant is the split tail

And if she said let’s twist one up late night and have fun

Hell yea....but that’s the only way

I have to say I was severely disappointed. The blurb for the news advertised they would have a “story about a new drug that was hurting children and they would inform us ‘all about it’”. Instead of surfing by I figured I just had to see just what this new drug was. Well, they didn’t tell us “all about it”, they didn’t hardly mention they name, what it does, how it is ingested or anything other than “lawmakers are on the job making it illegal.” Turing to the wife I said, “None of us have learned a damn thing since Harry Anslinger.” They are still trying to sell the same soap they were selling in “Reefer Madness”. Bizarre.

Probably not. I was born in 1957. They probably were using Borden's if they weren't using the natural stuff.

So you believe all government reports and studies? Like those originating from the likes of Valerie Plame and her husband, or any of hundreds of government sponsored research on man-made global warming affirming the West as being the reason temperatures on Mars are increasing? How about government affiliated figures like Bill Ayers and Nadil Hasan?

Plenty of fifth column agents working on the public dole and they don't always have the same objective in mind or objectivity in their research.

They are still trying to sell the same soap they were selling in “Reefer Madness”.

Reefer Madness was about selling movie tickets to an Adults Only movie in the age of the Hayes Code. Nothing else.

Other exploitation films at that same time had skinny dipping scenes and other naughty nudity amid the drugging and gun play.

Each city had its own local censorship board. Roadshow filmmakers had to appeal to the city to be able to show their wares. Sometimes they would even substitute alternate takes of scenes (more clothing) and even have to make substitutions on the fly if the vice squad dropped in on a screening. The hucksters would then have resort to a "square-up" reel when the heat left the premises.

They were carny folk.
