  1. Marijuana affects your brain 🧠
    brainy-wainy brain. And it leads to harder drugs like cocaine and heroin. πŸ”ͺπŸ’€πŸ’‰

  2. I really think it's funny how so many fucking people die, families get destroyed, violence occurs, etc. from alcohol but that's ok but pot COULD lower your IQ so we cant do that oh no that's horrible

  3. Right. Dont legalize marijuana but alcohol is worse, people die because of alcohol, there hasnt been a single case of someone smoking too much and dying.

  4. They can use me as a long term user "guinea pig" example any day. Test away! However I agree strongly that under 18's shouldn't be allowed to use ANY drug even if it's a soft one like Cannabis. Young brains need to develop fully and shouldn't be exposed to chemicals. In my experience, people who start using Cannabis in their teens can come unstuck later in life.

  5. A drop in IQ… hmmm wonder how much of a drop in IQ comes from long term use of opioids? And who knows if this supposed drop is even from cannabis use. This is scare tactics without evidence…

  6. Yes….Why don't parents offer up 2000/3000 of their teens and do a study on them from like when they were?? 15 till they are 55…Then wait what??? A decade and publish the results. So you will need a "Control" group. Of 2000-3000 teens and this "Control" must have none, 0! 0! Marijuana use. 0! For 40 Years. Then compare it to the Non-Control group and then, show the results.

  7. Ok you want to talk about kids. If it is legalized recreationally, then that money could go to help build schools and make the schools have better security and then the schools would be able to afford cops to sniff out pot in the school.
