    Getting high on pot makes people vulnerable to false memories

    Getting high on cannabis makes people vulnerable to 'false memories' | Live Science

    Can you trust an eyewitness while they're high, or should you wait until they sober up?

    People who are high on cannabis are more likely to form false memories, in which they wrongly "remember" information that they never actually learned or recall snippets of an event that never happened, new research suggests.

    False memories can arise spontaneously when people draw faulty inferences from their actual experiences. For instance, you might remember your co-worker being at the big meeting last Monday because everyone else attended when, in reality, he was out sick. In other cases, external sources supply the misleading information that fuels false memories, whether in the form of leading questions, faulty personal accounts from other people or misinformed media coverage.

    Questionable memory is not limited to pot smokers:

    What kind of a man is a man who has not left this world a better place?

    No one is in control.

    What have you all done? Getting high used to make one mellow, make crap tv, (even commercials,) Oscar worthy and reduce the left-overs in the fridge.........

    This is why I drink. That way I can't form new memories, let alone false ones.

    While everyone's vulnerable to false/enhanced memories, pot is an INCREDIBLY dangerous & addictive drug.

    Incredibly dangerous and addictive???? based upon what? Its a drug, so being addictive and dangerous goes with the territory. Relatively speaking, however, compared to most drugs, alcohol in particular, its pretty benign. If you need to get high or merely "take the edge off", Marijuana is actually one of the safer ways to do that.

    Alcohol, btw, can actually lead to dementia.

    I guess for some it can be.

    I never enjoyed it enough to use it regularly - even though we did when I was growing up - everyone I knew used & it was always being passed around.. still, I never dug it enough to use much. Everyone always laughed at me and called me a lightweight. . it's alright, now that we're in our 50's it's clear who the heavy users were, some still are LOL Being a lightweight has its benefits I guess.

    Now that its legal, it's big business.. and now their making even MORE $$$ with the CBD craze going on ... crazy LOL
