That's why it's called dope.

What about college-level use? Those folks are safe, right?

I wonder why this study took so long to come out. I could have come to the same conclusions using anecdotal evidence. People who think pot is harmless are wrong. And yes, as another poster said, alcohol may be similar, especially if used frequently, and especially at young ages.

I've got three boys, oldest is nine, and they know drugs and alcohol aren't good for them, can mess people up, and get you headed straight for jail or worse. I'm sure there'll be peer pressure, so I'm just hoping they end up in the right crowd. I've got a heavy emphasis on athletics and academics, so enough to keep 'em busy. A little experimenting may happen, but if it looks like one of my kids is becoming a stoner, I'm going to be putting my foot down. Not sure of exact actions I'd take yet, that will take a lot of thinking, but I've got some ideas. Besides grounding and punishment, also a visit to our local jails, and drug rehab centers and some AA meetings. Anyway, so far so good, but turning ten years old is getting close to crucial years now.

Bull****, I've got a younger brother that's been smoking weed since his teens, and it hasn't changed him at all.

Literally, HE'S STILL THE SAME PERSON AT 50 AS HE WAS AT 15.

Typical pothead response. Not saying you are a pothead but that is one of the many gems that falls out of their slack jaws.

Oh it just can't be. Drugs are good for you.

Like the know-it-all collage educated utopian libatards that have it all figured out?

I guess pot could have caused their mental disorder and delusional thinking.

Ok.

Now cue all the tards that will say drugs are good and wholesome for us and that we should all be on something.
