Study: Pot-smoking teens experience mental slippage as adults (w/video)

We agree with MOST of the direction of this report, however we  at THEI are for legalization of Marijuana. We have always stated that we believe the billions of  tax dollars we have spent in the so-called Drug War to incarcerate pot smokers, then run them through the justice system time after time, could be better spent in education and rehabilitation.  .We are also concerned with how the criminal  record they end up with will be a yoke they will carry for life. 

 If you are a teen and you want to smoke weed please wait until after you turn 21.. I am a lifetime weed smoker (started at 20) and I have watched a lot of young people end up mentally screwed up because of early drug use.

Smart kids don’t do drugs. They wait until they are dumb adults . . EDITOR

The latest research, published in the journal Proceedings of the National Academies of Science, underscores what the authors call the “toxic effects of cannabis on the brain” — especially the developing brain. Against the backdrop of resurgent marijuana use among U.S. high school students, they recommend “increasing efforts” to “delay the onset of cannabis use” among teens. . . . Read Complete Report
