Daily Marijuana Use Is Perfectly Healthy, Study Suggests

Lord knows we have our share of daily pot smokers in L.A., the medical marijuana capital of America.

But do they flood the emergency rooms and doctors’ offices with requests for health care as a result of their cannabis habit. Nope. Not, at least, if you think a new study applies to all weed tokers:

Researchers from Boston Medical Center and the Boston University School of Medicine examined 589 drug users, more than 8 out of 10 of then pot smokers, and determined that the weed aficionados among them were no more likely to go see the doctor than non-drug consumers.

The research was published online this week by the Journal of General Internal Medicine. According to a summary, researchers found …

… no differences between daily marijuana users and those using no marijuana in their use of the emergency room, in hospitalizations, medical diagnoses or their health status.

Mom always said partaking of your greens would keep the doctor away.

Daniel Fuster, postdoctoral scholar at both Boston institutions, says:

… Our findings suggest that marijuana use has little measurable effect on self-reported health or healthcare utilization in adults using drugs identified in a primary care clinic.

Still, don’t count this as an LA Weekly endorsement. Consult your doctor before partaking of any medicinal herbs, please.
