Smoking Pot


Q: My girlfriend's son is 6'1" at 140lbs and he does not eat but every three to four days. He says it is because he does not smoke pot any longer. When I asked what that has to do with not eating he says that if you smoke pot for a long time your body stores the THC in fat cells and when you quit smoking your body craves the THC and so it attacks your fat cells and that is why he is so skinny. He says he is just not hungery, that is why he does not eat.

I think it is BS.
