    Turns Out Smoking Weed Is Bad for You

    A new study indicates that cognitive function is impaired by chronic marijuana use. ("Chronic," like "frequent," you stoner.) Looks like your older brother was wrong when he told you that pot was harmless because "it's from the earth"!

    Please note how the author of the article repeats himself in the following quote.

    Chronic smokers "repeated errors more often than the two other groups, even after the authors corrected them," and "had more trouble maintaining a set of rules" and also "repeated errors more often than the two other groups, even after the authors corrected them."

    Oh wait a minute. Was that from the 'Onion'?

    Re: Turns Out Smoking Weed Is Bad for You

    Couldn't these results just as easily be used to say people with lesser cognitive funtion smoke marijuana chronically?

    And that wouldn't come as a surprise to me, the study refers to people who start smoking pot before the age of 16 as performing worst. Who smokes that young? Kids who don't fit in at school, fail at school, and look to find a group to fit with. Of 8th and 10th graders only 14.5% and 29.4% surveyed by Monitoring the Future reported having used drugs of any kind and 7% of 8th graders and 12.2% of 10th graders reported using a drug other than marijuana. This of course doesn't take into account frequency of use, just lifetime use.

    It doesn't prove the marijuana as a cause, just that there is a correlation between chronic marijuana use and poor cognitive function.

    Pre-marijuana use cognitive functionality would have to be tested in order to show the marijuana as the source of cognitive dysfunction.

    Also the average age of those surveyed was 22, people mature out of drug use. The survey only consisted of 33 smokers, that's a very small sample group, and if the average age was 22, that means the oldest people in their 20s were

    It's been legitimately proven to not destroy brain cells, so how could it permanently effect cognitive function?

    Notice how this article says the paper was "presented" not "published?" No expert in the field would approve this for publication in a reviewed journal.

    This study is far from legitimate and proves almost nothing.

    "It's impossible to tell whether our results would be the same in moderate smokers," said Gruber. "But there are even more of those people out there, so that will be the next place we go for our research."
    - Anyone want to place a bet that it doesn't?

    Too much of anything is also bad for you.
    Of course chronic marijuana use is bad for you. Still believe it should be a personal decision whether or not to smoke it.
    Too many uptight douche bags want to control what I put in my own body.

    Despite my preconception that I don't think weed is that bad for you, anyone can see that the study here is extremely flawed.
