Marijuana smokers who are under the influence of the drug THC very often experience the need for snacking. This is why it is used to treat cancer patients who have no appetite. The drug triggers the hunger mechanism and amps up the appetite. If you are eating regular foods, this is not a problem, but many times people under the influence of marijuana choose junk foods over green leafy vegetables. Unfortunately, the excessive snacking on sweets is going to lead to major health problems including diabetes.
