COMPONENTS of cannabis might help those addicted to crack cocaine to quit. Such people may find it easier to curb their usage or give up entirely when they take some form of cannabis, suggests a small study that builds on similar results from research in rodents. "This is a promising development that will provide more alternatives to those in need," says Ric Curtis at the City University of New York, who wasn't involved in the work. Some of the first hints that cannabis might help curb crack cravings were anecdotal, says Curtis, who studied crack dealers in the 1980s. "They would wean themselves off crack by smoking it with marijuana."
