    "....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.

    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".
