Duluth Researcher Looking at Effects of Cannabis on Giving Up Tobacco Smoking

A Duluth researcher is launching a study to seek to discover, in part, what effect marijuana use has on individuals trying to quit tobacco cigarette smoking.

The study will take place in Duluth and the Twin Cities, both prime places, said the researcher, Mustafa al’Absi of the University of Minnesota Medical School’s Duluth campus. He was involved in a national study a few years ago, al’Absi said, that included data on marijuana and tobacco use in 10 cities.
