Chronic marijuana abuse linked to severe vomiting sickness.

Byline: ANI

Washington, Mar 22 (ANI): A new study from Creighton University of Omaha has revealed that chronic marijuana abuse is linked to a severe vomiting sickness.

Lead researcher Dr. Sontineni said that doctors and health care workers currently under recognize the syndrome leading to delayed diagnosis and expensive diagnostic investigations.

With the increasing consistent use of marijuana, particularly young people, over several years might give rise to the number of cases diagnosed each year.

However, the exact mechanism leading to generation of these symptoms, why it appears only after several years of marijuana abuse and why compulsive hot showering behaviour relieves the symptoms is still under scientific investigation.

The study is published in World Journal of Gastroenterology. (ANI)
