Skip to comments.Does smoking pot cause man boobs?

(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."

[Thanks to Gefn for the link!]
Fat bastard must have been slightly more than a recreational user.
it’s not the weed.. it’s the munchies that follow..
Slings, you also work in mysterious, but usually pretty humorous ways on FR.
Thanks for the ping(s).
The proper term is “moobs”.
[why do ya think they call it dope?]
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.
This has been known for decades.
I’ve never smoked anything and I’ve had them practically my entire adulthood even before I acquired a spare tire or a gut.
in the muchies is soy...estrogen
did you have soy based baby formula?
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!
My pleasure. Got enough brain bleach?
Two words: Michael Moore.
I’ll check my anatomy notes.
“A young man in his 20s — let’s call him George — sits across from me in the exam room.”
Can I call him Robert Paulson instead?
Well, yeah...but then they forgot.
Only in death do members of Project Mayhem get names...
All the dirty hippies I knew were extremely skinny.
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.
>its not the weed.. its the munchies that follow..
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.
No it causes munchies and laziness which in turn cause man boobs ! and all around general fat ass people with no will to do anything worthwhile but smoke more dope and eat more munchies !
Just ask Obama’s wife she can explain it especially the man boob thing shes gotem !
Man boobs on the Man Boob.
George: Oooo, I'm sorry it was the Moops!
Bubble Boy: That's a typo. It's the Moors!
Bubble Boy: Moors!
Bubble Boy: Moors! (breaks protective barrier and deflates)
That guy’s really been hitting the bong.
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
They don’t call them Girly-boys for nothing.
And you’re modest, too.
I regret it sounded like bragging to you
It was apparently an ineffective attempt to demonstrate that pot did not emasculate me
Just yankin’ yer chain.
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.
Liberal “men”????? No such thing babygirl!!!! ;)
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.
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.
Ah, the horrors of Communism.
Liberal XX chromosome beings, then?
How the hell have you been?!?
I haven’t heard from you in ages!
[and your tagline is gonna make people think you’re weird]
We actually sat through that movie in high school.
Between that and the 8mm car wreck carnage gore-fests they showed us in driver’s ed, it’s a miracle that I ever left the house.
You’re doing something that’s screwing with your eyesight, kid.
I thought we’d decided that moobs were caused by the chemicals in plastic and/or milk/meat and various and sundry phytoestrogens?
