    Duh.

    I laugh every time I hear from pot smokers that marijuana use is completely harmless compared to alcohol. No one can possibly believe marijuana is the least bit harmless.

    I had a buddy in high school that was probably the brightest guy in our class, and he was extremely outgoing. He found pot, and within a year, he had no gleam in his eye. He became this blank, empty loner of a guy that I could hardly recognize.

    It eats your brain, folks. Legal or not, it destroys who you are.

    On a selfish note, it culls the herd for my kids, whom I'm confident find potheads to be as pathetic as I do.
    Maybe you should have read the entire article and understood what it actually meant instead of the headline. This stupid ex-pothead named Verax was able to, why couldn't you?

    Although Breiter’s team members did not examine the patients’ cognitive symptoms, they do believe that the brain abnormalities seen in their study could lead to substantial effects on brain development and behavior, especially given the young ages of the participants. Breiter also acknowledged the problems of analyzing a very small study sample – but said that their findings should still serve as a wake-up call to others.
    So in other words it could possibly have negative effects that have of yet been quantified. Personally I'm interested in what the risk factors may be, perhaps I'd be a little smarter now if I hadn't smoked all that weed. Unfortunately though you mischaracterize this study as evidence pot makes you stupid and use it as a feather in your agenda cap.

    First line -FAUX NEWS says it all.

    IIRC this reminds of the Maryland sheriff who said in front of a committee and cameras that right after Colorado decriminalized pot there were 30 deaths due to overdoses.

    Friggin Pop and Cheetos do more damage than weed.

    Fluoride in a water supply does more damage than weed, Tylenol does more damage than weed.

    Anyone who thinks marijuana is harmless is a fool. Alcohol and marijuana are both equally dangerous drugs. The latest thing I read concerning marijuana is that it slowly breaks down the body's immune system.
