New Obesity Drug

So here I am having lunch in front of my laptop which is why I probably decided to click on this story about a new obesity drug. What is fascinating about the approach of this drug is that it uses the marijuana effect in reverse meaning it is the anti-munchy drug.

In other words it targets the area of the brain which marijuana stimulates to make you hungry but tries to cause the exact opposite reaction.

The drug, called taranabant, is now in the final stage of the three-phase FDA-approval process.

Normally topics relating to drugs aren't part of my blog content but then again I am not sure why it is on Wired magazine's website which is where I found it in the first place.
