Fewer STDs among men-who-have-sex-with-men and also use cannabis.

New research out of Los Angeles found that men-who-have-sex-with-men and also use cannabis, but no other mind-altering drugs, had significantly fewer sexually transmitted infections, including HIV.

Lower risk sexual engagements were also reported by study participants who use cannabis.

This is the first study to examine the relationship between sexually transmitted infections and cannabis use.

The study’s results appear in the February 2019 issue of Sexually Transmitted Diseases.

The research was conducted by the Department of Epidemiology, Fielding School of Public Health, and Department of Health and Mental Health Services, Los Angeles LGBT Center.
