Two different cannabis compounds make a difference in how much alcohol someone drinksResearch Society on Alcoholism
Alcohol and cannabis are commonly used together, and their co-use has public health implications.

These results and others will be shared at the 42nd annual scientific meeting of the Research Society on Alcoholism (RSA) in Minneapolis June 22-26.
