    If the study is true, then it's great we limit it to people over 21!

    Also, small sample size is small.

    Re: Smoking cannabis just once a week can damage young brains

    What is this study supposed to prove? It is already widely held and pretty much common knowledge that brains that are not fully developed should not be exposed to marijuana, or other brain chemical altering substances.

    It's sad that the people that generally **** all over marijuana are the types of people that dope their kids up on medications prescribed by doctors who typically have no idea about the long-term affects the little white pills will have on Johnny's brain, body and health when he gets older.

    Re: Smoking cannabis just once a week can damage young brains

    From experience with people that did smoke pot when they were young, I can say I could believe it. Many of the guys I know that have smoked since they were 15-16 are, well... impaired. Sad to see actually. The problem is, I don't have a clue if they would have turned out dumb as a box of rocks even if they hadn't smoked. At least their laid back dudes. Dumb, but cool.

    I do wish that there had been a larger sample size, and that it would have been conducted by... say... Johns Hopkins. But...

    After the brain is formed, I don't think that casual use of MJ would be impairing to the brain. But, I don't smoke it, never have, so I can't speak from that.

    If a guy (or gal Your Star ) wants to indulge, then I don't think that MJ is as dangerous to the public as alcohol, which I do personally partake, and enjoy when I do. SO, to me, MJ should be sold at the local liquor store under a license just like liquor and be held to 21 and above. Tax it baby. Pay for stuff. I just want the concession stand outside the store where I can sell munchies to the patrons in line. I could retire in a year.
    Everything in your life is a reflection of a choice you have made. If you want a different result, don't blame someone else, or expect others to make a change, you should stop complaining and make a different choice. Remember, the circumstances of your birth don't determine the outcome of your life.

    Key here is YOUNG PEOPLE. Just as the same as YOUNG PEOPLE who binge drink.

    Same problem as with the other thread. All its purporting is "abnormal scan". Different doesn't necessarily have to mean significant negative consequences. They don't quantify any actual negative symptoms so as of yet this still means squat other than they need to do further testing and actually produce some meaningful results.

    Something like X amount of marijuana consumed from 18-25 resulted in an average of 14% reduction in "motivational tendencies", or increased depression, etc.

    That's not even the young anymore.

    I've had problems with people binge drinking that are in their 30's, 40's, 50's.

    Guy I had to have arrested 3 weeks ago must have been 30 something.

    Sure. Abuse is always a problem. And its a damn shame. Ive dealt with it with close family members. But still I dont think we should make booze illegal again. I dont see the point in arguing that? I dont think anyone is going to argue that we should outlaw alcohol again because , look what happened when we did. Essentially we did just that as we did with alcohol to marijuana and look where its lead us. But thankfully its slowly unraveling.

    So? Minors are not allowed to smoke pot, cigarettes, or drink alcohol.

    What's your point? That parents are incompetant?

    Who cares? People have the right to harm themselves.
