Shortly after toking up, a lot of marijuana users find that there's one burning question on their minds: "Why am I so hungry?" Researchers have been probing different parts of the brain looking for the root cause of the marijuana munchies for years. Now, a team of neuroscientists report that they have stumbled onto a major clue buried in a cluster of neurons they thought was responsible for making you feel full.


POMC neurons, those fuckers...

I was really surprised to see this published in Nature. I would bet that this article got them the highest traffic they had in years.

Then they will realize that people are interested in this. And suddenly Nature adds the Journal of Psychopharmacology to its roster and starts publishing stuff about LSD, MDMA, WEED and even more WEED
