One was published in 1992 under the title "Marihuana attenuates the rise in plasma ethanol levels in human subjects", while the other was published in 2001 and called "Ethanol increases plasma Delta(9)-tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) levels and subjective effects after marihuana smoking in human volunteers".
