This snp, located in intron 2 of the central cannabinoid receptor CNR1 gene, has been linked to cannabis dependence. [PMID 16917946]
The (G) allele is reported to have a protective effect, and is a defining part of a haplotype that is associated with lower odds of developing cannabis dependence. The (A) allele is more common in all populations studied.
