    And the only thing anyone can say about those who have the brain changes is that their brains changed. Not what effects it has had. Crappy reporting by the news, especially Fox News.
    You can never be safe from a government that can keep you completely safe from each other and the world. You must choose.

    “There were abnormalities in their working memory, which is fundamental to everything you do,” Breiter, a professor of psychiatry and behavioral sciences at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine, told FoxNews.com.

    That's not an effect? Or is it just an excuse to blame Fox News?

    I can't say it better than this...

    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    Re: Study finds brain changes in young marijuana users

    Peter Jones, professor of psychiatry at the University of Cambridge, said the study was interesting but inconclusive. "The research is limited as it is only a small study, it is not known whether the reported changes in the brain are necessarily bad. Furthermore, as they didn't measure the brains before and after, it's possible that people with a larger accumbens are more likely to take cannabis."
    Ya gotta love those Faux New articles.

    Well the study didn't measure effects of the abnormalities, only that they're there. Any speculation about what the changes mean is just speculation.

    Sources?
