    Chronic pot smokers beware.

    A new study found that regularly smoking marijuana may lower cognitive function, especially if the person starts smoking before 16 years of age.

    Study authors from Harvard-affiliated McLean Hospital wanted to examine the effects of chronic marijuana use on brain function.
    In a paper presented today at the annual meeting of the Society for Neuroscience in San Diego, Dr. Staci Gruber, lead author of the small study, reported that study participants who began smoking pot before 16 years of age performed significantly worse on cognitive function tests than both non-smokers and those who became chronic smokers later in life.

    Researchers defined chronic marijuana use as smoking pot at least five of the last seven days and a minimum of 3,000 joints in a lifetime. The average age of study participants was 22 years old. The data showed that chronic pot smokers repeated errors more often than the two other groups, even after the authors corrected them. They also had more trouble maintaining a set of rules, suggesting an inability to maintain focus.

    May Damage?

    Considering the bone headed responses given by potheads here to defend their weeds, there can be no doubt that the weapon that the Mexicans use against the children of the United States is working to lower the American race to their standards.

    show me where anyone is promoting teens smoking pot. How much you wanna bet chronic teenage drinking is just as bad.
    You small governemnt freaks are fucking hillarious. Not to morons, teens can get pot easier than beer because one is regulated and the other is not.
    thanks for supporting the Mexican Cartels!

    The marijuana debate is political. Does your keeper let you watch TV?

    there's nothing political about a medical study except in the funhouse mirror that passes for your mind.

    kudos on spelling tv correctly on your first try. :thup:
