    • YOUNG people who smoke cannabis just once or twice a week could suffer "major" changes to areas of their brain important for emotion and motivation, US scientists have said.
      In a study that challenges the idea that "casual" marijuana use is largely harmless, doctors found that young adults who used the drug only recreationally had "abnormal alterations" to the nucleus accumbens and the amygdala.

    Frankly, I'm not sure that the damage from weekly marijuana use might not be preferable to what we currently deal with at normal function.

    How are we defining "young people"? Also, where are all these people advocating for children smoking pot?

    You have a point Lizzie. Personally I have never touched pot or any other drug unless it was prescribed for me.....

    No, they're not. Another lie from Navy Pride.

    Also, there are no "left-wing polls." I don't think you understand how scientific polling works.

    A study of 40 people is not what I would call comprehensive.

    Furthermore, any serious pot smoker worth their salt will advise teenagers to hold off on the grounds that it's much safer to smoke up after their brains finish physically changing shape, i.e. when they're proper adults.
    I'm already gearing up for Finger Vote 2014.

    Just for reference, means my post was a giant steaming pile of sarcasm.

    I'm a bit hesitant to trust a study with such a small sample size.
