I've just had a phone conversation with my Dsis. She mentioned how thin her ds is (he looked too thin to me 6 months ago). I asked if he was anorexic, but she thinks he isn't. Then I half jokingly said 'I'm surprised he doesn't eat more when he gets the munchies' (he smokes dope quite regularly), and my Dsis replied, 'Oh no, that surpresses your appetite - he's just lazy about preparing food'
My question is - what drugs suppress your appetite? because cannabis sure doesn't!

Cocaine is a fairly major appetite suppressant

That's what I was afraid of.

Cannabis does, I knew a few stoners and they were all skinny.
I think it's because it dulls their appetite the rest of the time so they only feel hungry when they've got the munchies and don't necessarily eat much the rest of the time.
Lazy about preparing food sounds about right to me

Cocaine suppress your appetite as does Heroin.

Hope your nephew is ok.

Pretty much all stimulant drugs suppress your appetite. Speed, coke, meth etc.

Yep, quite a few do. All those mentioned, and legal highs, how old is he?

He's nearly 19.

Cannabis gets mixed with all sorts now. Could be smoking something like that.

I was going to say speed and coke, loads of my friends got really really skinny when we were younger, it's amazing the change it can cause,

Your sister may have it wrong about cannabis and think it suppresses appetite? Or that may be what it does to him. Don't jump to conclusion just yet about which drugs your sis is talking about.
