Zyban is one of the standard therapies used in tobacco smoking cessation - it helps reduce dependence on nicotine and withdrawal symptoms. However, it has not been shown to effectively help reduce cannabis dependence. Your friend should mention the fact that he smokes cannabis (or takes any other drugs) to his doctor before taking prescription medications, in case their are potential drug interactions.
