Actually what's interesting about this is that despite this reputation marijuana has for increasing appetite, it actually doesn't make you fat. Three separate peer-reviewed scientific studies released last year came to the surprising conclusion that marijuana use appears to prevent obesity and type II diabetes. Marijuana users are less likely to be obese and show smaller waistlines, higher good cholesterol, lower blood sugar and lower insulin resistance than non-users. There appears to be some therapeutic benefit for people with type II diabetes and researchers are now looking into the possibiity that it could treat type I diabetes as well.

Funny, but the kid looked not totally stable, and should have been wearing a little helmet. I'd hate to see a little kid get his/her head cracked for 10 seconds of fame on a YouTube video.
