Exercise may curb marijuana use and cravings

To overcome drug addictions, the norm is to check into a drug treatment center.  But what about exercise? A recent Vanderbilt study shows that exercise can reduce marijuana use in persons who don’t want to quit.  In this study 12 participants exercised for 30 minutes a day for 10 days over 2 weeks.  In this time period, marijuana use was cut by more than 50%.   While the sample size in this study was small, this study does open up new avenues in treating addiction through non-drug methods.  For more info, click here.
