This is why it should be legally sold to adults, with large fines for providing it to youths.

Perhaps I'm old and tired, but I think that the chances of finding out what's actually going on are so absurdly remote that the only thing to do is to say, "Hang the sense of it," and keep yourself busy. I'd much rather be happy than right any day.

Every pothead that I knew in college
in the seventies (except two)
are dead.
Some went on to opiates,
some to cocaine and other drugs,
but the FIRST DRUG OF CHOICE was POT.

For a couple of them, pot ruined their
lives VERY young.

Why anyone would fool around with that
garbage is beyond me.

The potheads here will scream bloody

Cannabis can affect teenagers so severely that they end up three years behind their classmates, study finds

Results concluded from an investigation of 4,000 Canadian school children

Researchers found cannabis more toxic for youngsters’ brains than alcohol

Persistent use of the drug seriously affected basic reasoning skills

By STEPHEN ADAMS FOR THE MAIL ON SUNDAY

Regularly smoking cannabis can affect teenagers so severely that they end up three years behind their classmates in terms of brain development, a landmark study has found.

The results of the investigation, which involved almost 4,000 secondary school children in Canada, led researchers to conclude cannabis is more toxic for youngsters’ brains than alcohol.

Persistent use of the drug seriously affected basic reasoning skills – while it also had a disastrous effect on self-control, they found.

Pupils who smoked cannabis saw their results deteriorate when their use of the drug increased +2
Pupils who smoked cannabis saw their results deteriorate when their use of the drug increased

Meanwhile, a separate study has found hard evidence that the main psychoactive compound in cannabis, tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), causes changes in the brain that trigger schizophrenia.

In the high school study, researchers at Montreal University studied pupils from the time they entered the Canadian seventh grade – aged 12 or 13 years – for four years.

They regularly asked the young volunteers about their cannabis and alcohol use and put them through computer tests examining reasoning skills, short-term memory and self-control.

My thoughts on marijuana is that if Alcohol is legal and accepted in society, which it is. Then marijuana has too be legal and accepted in society. The harmful effects of alcohol are orders of magnitude more dangerous than marijuana. So if some people who would otherwise be alcoholics, choose instead to smoke marijuana then it's a net benefit to society. While psychological damage and addiction to marijuana is not unheard of, I believe the societal effects of alcoholism and other entry level substance addiction like opiates are much more harmful as a whole.

People are going too use substances for the foreseeable future, the focus should be on harm reduction not prohibition.
