Not that this is evidence that cannabis doesn't lower metabolic syndrome, but the study did not control for substances people might use instead of cannabis. There is evidence that frequent alcohol use increases your odds of presenting with metabolic syndrome. Plenty of people use cannabis and alcohol, but I'd hazard a guess that at least outside of college, frequent cannabis users may not be as likely to be heavy alcohol users.
