    Long term use affects memory in a negative way.

    I used a broad---correct---statement.

    That statement is correct. Your previous statement was incorrect

    That was your interpretation.

    You assumed I meant long-term memory when I meant memory in general was affected by long-term use..

    Got a source for that claim?

    Not surprisingly, marijuana intoxication can cause distorted perceptions, impaired coordination, difficulty with thinking and problem solving, and problems with learning and memory. Research has shown that, in chronic users, marijuana's adverse impact on learning and memory can last for days or weeks after the acute effects of the drug wear off. As a result, someone who smokes marijuana every day may be functioning at a suboptimal intellectual level all of the time.

    Research into the effects of long-term cannabis use on the structure of the brain has yielded inconsistent results. It may be that the effects are too subtle for reliable detection by current techniques. A similar challenge arises in studies of the effects of chronic marijuana use on brain function. Brain imaging studies in chronic users tend to show some consistent alterations, but their connection to impaired cognitive functioning is far from clear. This uncertainty may stem from confounding factors such as other drug use, residual drug effects, or withdrawal symptoms in long-term chronic users.

    You obviously don't understand what you just posted.

    It doesn't say that long term use causes memory to fade. It says that there is no long-term effect on memory.

    Meaning that the short-term memory is affected. Perhaps I wasn't specific enough but the point still stands.

    How specific would you like to be in debate because being obscenely technical can be annoying at best for all involved.

    Stop saying that I meant long-term memory. I never mentioned it.
