Why exercise? Just smoke some more cheeba!

You may have heard this morning about a study that was conducted on marijuana users. Thank you, scientists! I'm always hearing about studies conducted on cigarette smokers, and I pay attention, but I don't smoke cigarettes, so I'm never sure of whether it applies to me or not.

So here's one thing researchers found:

Regular marijuana smokers consume up to 40 percent more calories than non-users -- mostly through alcohol, salty snacks and cheese.

Goddamn. No wonder scientists are scientists. They hit that RIGHT on! I love alcohol AND salty snacks AND particularly cheese. Geniuses! Who ever said science never did nothing for nobody? Another finding of the study was that although marijuana smokers consume 24-40 percent more calories than non-users, we're not any fatter. They don't know why; one of their guesses is that maybe pot increases your metabolism. We're not any fatter! Hooray! They never should have told me that. It just encourages me.

By the way, here's an article on the study if you're interested. I just told you all the important stuff, though, so you needn't bother.
