    They had to do a study to figure that out?

    Seems like it would be common sense given that teens who drink do so in excess, with the goal off drinking until they pass out.

    Did somebody expect teens to be exempt from the effects of alcohol?

    I really wonder about these studies.

    So mj is less harmful to your brain than a controlled substance your prohibited from possessing or using.

    Is that some kind of endorsement for legalizing mj?

    Yeah, why would they even bother researching the effects of the two most popular abused drugs?

    Then when they find out that the effects are not 100% exactly the same for both, they should have refused to publish their findings so that the public wouldn't think they were endorsing increased abuse of the lesser of the two evils.

    When I was a teen (40 years ago), I did a "little bit" of both.

    Therefore, I've been studying my brain, as of lately.

    Neither one of those really wrecked it.

    It's the internet. The Internet boiled my brain way worse than anything we did in high school.

    (And probably TV, now. I think Wrecker Wars and Jersey Shores and Springer and RedNecks That Kill Things And Get On TV, might have made me a little bit smarter. I need to study it some more.)

    Wasn't there a recent study which indicated lower IQ for teens who smoked pot?

    Teenaged Brain is an oxymoron, with the emphasis on moron.

    “Unscrupulous operators could confuse
    Exploit and deceive the reflex theories and change the probabilities
    It's a crass and rockous crackas place
    With pavlov on the human race
    It's a terrible illness, it's a terrible case
    And it's usually permanent when it takes place

    It's a teenage nervous breakdown
    Nervous teenage breakdown” ….Lowell George

    Another waste of money. Alcohol has long been proven to cause serious brain/neurological problems (in addition to liver cirrhosis/kidney failure), marijuana has not.

    Studies are based on statistics, and statistics are like a bikini.

    What they reveal is interesting, but what they hide is vital.

    If a substance is "not as bad as", the general attitude is that it must be good............Right.
