    Re: Study finds brain changes in young marijuana users

    Newsflash: Study shows that psychoactive drug use affects areas of the brain.

    Of course the use of marijuana, or any other recreational drug, affects the brain and in proportion to the level of its use. Next we will be treated to a study showing that swimming makes you wet or that eating activates your digestive system.

    So when you post idiotically unscientific studies that make claims of things everyone already knows, and someone points that out, they're apologists?

    Alcohol kills tens of thousands a year and cannabis kills zero. Keep sucking down your poison and ignoring your critics.

    He didn't apologize for anything - he clearly said "kids shouldn't be smoking weed." Why? Because it is bad for their brains. And he was also clearly pointing out, which I did too, that this study breaks *zero* new ground and only reaffirms what is already known.

    I know quite a few people who have and still do use pot and are PhD scientists and engineers, so I guess your little story there is, again, not an absolute.

    Maybe some logic and math classes to understand how proper arguments are made?

    LOL !!!

    Every pot head has a pot smoking friend who's a "engineer " or has a "PHD".

    Its just HIllarious !

    I've OD'd on cannabis about 13 times now. One of the times was so bad the ambulance had to resuscitate me and stab a giant needle with adrenaline directly into my heart.

    I'm an electrical engineer and I've smoked daily for years. So am I a liar, an anamoly or are you just completely uninformed about the effects of cannabis?

    I mean hell, how do I manage to make it to work when I'm sucking dick in alleyways for my next score right?

    Most mind altering drugs do to some degree when you become addicted or relient on it.

    The sample size is ridiculously small, and the findings inconclussive (in terms of permanent changes, or even if the changes are bad). That doesn't mean it should be utterly disregarded. But it also doesn't mean it should be taken as some kind of smoking gun either.

    Frankly, I don't personally buy into the notion that it's completely harmless...but whether or not there's some harm to it isn't really relevant to me. The amount of harm, perhaps, plays into things. But I've still yet to see anything to lead me to believe it's harm is so significant that there's a legitimate public concern in having it banned.

    But not bad for anyone else's brain, adults are immune. Thanks.

    It's so funny how that point is made every time. Yet nobody really knows these people. LOL

    Every pot smoker I've ever known, which is several, has been riddled with all sort of personal issues and a life that is a fraction of what it could have been. They become consumed with it, and it dulls every bit of their ambition and productivity.
