LOL..."smoking doobies can give you man boobies". It's plausible considering cannabis use has been shown to lower testosterone levels in men which can lead to gynecomastia. It also means you're more likely to be shooting blanks, guys.

Beware...
Quotes from Henry J. Anslinger, director of the Federal Bureau of Narcotics...these are not made up.

“There are 100,000 total marijuana smokers in the US, and most are Negroes, Hispanics, Filipinos, and entertainers. Their Satanic music, jazz, and swing, result from marijuana use. This marijuana causes white women to seek sexual relations with Negroes, entertainers, and any others.”

“Marijuana is an addictive drug which produces in its users insanity, criminality, and death.”

Reefer makes darkies think they’re as good as white men.”

“Marihuana leads to pacifism and communist brainwashing”

“You smoke a joint and you’re likely to kill your brother.”

“Marijuana is the most violence-causing drug in the history of mankind.”

I'm not fighting with you. If you or anybody else wants to take a chance at man boobs that's your prerogative. Don't say I didn't warn you.

Understood...just to be fair, make sure to mention this condition also can happen from other things and not just smoking marijuana...
Please note how many of the following are common drugs and treatments regularly administered by the medical community every day. I'd venture to guess that marijuana is but a small percentage contributor to this condition given there are so many other possible causes.

Anti-androgens used to treat prostate enlargement or cancer and some other conditions. Examples include flutamide, finasteride (Proscar) and spironolactone (Aldactone).

Anabolic steroids and androgens.

AIDS medications. Gynecomastia can develop in HIV-positive men who are receiving a treatment regimen called highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART). Efavirenz (Sustiva) is more commonly associated with gynecomastia than are other HIV medications.

Anti-anxiety medications, such as diazepam (Valium).

Tricyclic antidepressants.

Antibiotics.

Ulcer medications, such as cimetidine.

Cancer treatment (chemotherapy).
Heart medications, such as digoxin (Lanoxin) and calcium channel blockers.

I did not say nor imply that marijuana may or may not cause this condition. I have presented additional causes that should also be made known to be fair...

Looks like the Wiggler knows a lot about man boobs. What's up with that? Looks like a ton of information was on hand and studied, wonder why.

Personally, I beleive he's not happy that I brought to light that there are a dozen ways for this condition to occur but because I did so, and embarrassed him for holding back valid information, he felt the need to try to insult and/or belittle me.
And he failed.

As a means of distracting from the fact that your favorite drug of choice causes gynecomastia; a word I'm pretty sure you never even heard before I posted it here judging by the Google searches you returned...lol.
Enjoy those man boobies!
