So I have never smoked pot, as previously mentioned but I have heard that it gives you the "munchies." Basically after ingesting marijuana people have the urge to eat. Some doctors have heard this to and they got to thinking that giving marijuana to people with Alzheimer's was a good idea. Ludicrous as this sounds at first it could actually be a good idea. People with Alzheimer's are forgetful, which means they could forget to eat. If given marijuana they would eat thereby slowing down the rate at which they got sick and allowing caretakers to have one less thing to worry about. Although one would start to wonder if the patient would need less or more care while under the influence of marijuana...Any thoughts? Here are some sights that you can go to to that show some of the studies done on marijuana and Alzheimer's.
