    "....Researchers in Chicago observed the brains of teenagers who were heavy users of marijuana. In those individuals, memory-related structures in the brain appeared to shrink and collapse inward, possibly indicating a decrease in neurons"

    Does not the brain develop for a long time such as the early twenties? If one does marijuana, the best time to use is probably after the brain has developed.

    In other new, just out studies, cigarettes cause lung cancer and alcohol causes liver failure.

    I think the point of this thread is to say which poster everyone think has smoked the most pot, based solely on this study.

    Have you not had a bong hit tonight? Chill man, everything's groooovey.

    The study has some statements I have not seen in previous research journals that indicates more neural damage than I thought; especially the comments about decreasing neurons and the related structural appearance to "schizophrenia-related brain abnormalities".
