    “Cannabis use during adolescence and young adulthood increases the risk of psychotic symptoms, while continued cannabis use may increase the risk for psychotic disorder in later life, concludes a new study published online in the British Medical Journal.” - http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2011/03/110301184056.htm Our findings indicate long-term cannabis use is hazardous to the white matter of the developing brain. Delaying the age at which regular use begins may minimize the severity of microstructural impairment. - http://brain.oxfordjournals.org/content/135/7/2245.short Teens who routinely smoke marijuana risk a long-term drop in their IQ - http://news.yahoo.com/teen-pot-linked-later-declines-iq-192328332.html?_esi=0&bcmt=1346127366859-cc6205f3-31b2-4ebb-ac93-708fbfc37af9&bcmt_s=u#ugccmt-container-b Informants also reported noticing more cognitive problems for persistent cannabis users. Impairment was concentrated among adolescent-onset cannabis users, with more persistent use associated with greater decline. Further, cessation of cannabis use did not fully restore neuropsychological functioning among adolescent-onset cannabis users. These results provide new evidence of exposure- related structural abnormalities in the hippocampus and amygdala in long-term heavy cannabis users and corroborate similar findings in the animal literature. These findings indicate that heavy daily cannabis use across protracted periods exerts harmful effects on brain tissue and mental health. - http://www.truecompassion.org/PDFS/Health%20and%20Mental%20Health/Brain%20Regional%20Abnormalities%20Hippo%20Aust%20ArchGenPsych.pdf Despite relatively brief exposure, adolescent cannabis users relative to their age-matched counterparts demonstrated similar memory deficits to those reported in adult long-term heavy users. The results indicate that cannabis adversely affects the developing brain and reinforce concerns regarding the impact of early exposure. - http://www.acceptandchange.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/08/SolowijAdolescRAVLTPsychopharmacol.pdf Marijuana abuse during pregnancy and adolescence represents a major health problem owing to its potential consequences on neural development. Prenatally cannabis-exposed children display cognitive deficits, suggesting that maternal consumption has interfered with the proper maturation of the brain. “For example, chronic marijuana use is associated with reduced hypothalamic release of gonadotropin-releasing hormone, decreased plasma levels of gonadotropins (follicle-stimulating hormone, lutenizing hormone, and prolactin) and testosterone, reduced spermatogenesis, and impotency in men.” - http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/cncr.24159/full “These findings indicate that prenatal marijuana exposure has a significant (negative) effect on school-age intellectual development.” - http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S089085670962308X “Pre-natal marijuana exposure had persistent negative effects through age 16 on higher-order thinking, including problem solving, memory, planning, impulsivity, and attention.” http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3188826/ Marijuana use prior to her pregnancy greatly raises a woman s risk of premature birth - http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2012/07/120717182953.htm Prenatal marijuana exposure significantly predicted child depressive symptoms and attention problems at age 10, after controlling for other significant covariates. Child depressive symptoms and attention problems at age 10 significantly predicted delinquency at 14 years. http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0892036210001571

    The arguments about legalizing medical marijuana rage on and, with such strength of feeling on both sides of the argument, it can be difficult to get a clear perspective. We believe that the only way to see the wood for the trees, or the weed for the smoke, is to be objective.

    There is overwhelming evidence that cannabis relieves various medical conditions; unpleasant symptoms such as nausea and vomiting, pain and spasm, as well as the side effects of some prescription medicines. It is fact: marijuana is less toxic to the system than many pharmaceuticals.

    Reproduction whole or in part of any words, images, or any other material from any BigBudsMag.Com pages without first obtaining explicit written permission from BigBudsMag.com is strictly prohibited and is theft of intellectual property that could result in criminal or civil charges.

    The RAND Drug Policy Research Center is a non-partisan research center dedicated to providing objective analysis and research to decisionmakers. We do not have an official policy position on marijuana reform and more generally RAND does not advocate for or against legislation at any level of government.

    But for more than 25 years, RAND researchers have published articles and studies that will be useful for those making decisions about marijuana policy. Here we summarize some of these studies and provide links to the publications (some journal articles may require subscription). This is not an exhaustive list of RAND''s marijuana-related publications and we encourage readers to visit for more information.

    The medicinal use of cannabis is legal in a number of countries, including Canada , the Czech Republic and Israel. Medical cannabis in the United States is legal in 29 states as of December 2016.

    Cannabis has been in use for thousands of years. In India and Nepal, cannabis has long been used in religious rituals. [8]

    That is a good idea, but in reality many people earn a living selling weed. (such as the folks who may be answering this question). They would be out of work if you could just buy a box of weed in Walmart.

    How quickly things change. In 2010, the federal Office of National Drug Control Policy published a fact sheet outlining the pros and cons—mostly cons—of what marijuana legalization would mean to the country. From a financial and health perspective, the fact sheet suggested the country would go up in smoke, as it were. The criminal justice system would be negatively affected, it claimed, as would our overall mental and physical health.

    The Justice Department elected not to challenge the laws and has left marijuana enforcement policies to the discretion of local governments. Today, nearly 30 states are considering legalizing cannabis use either for medical or recreational purposes.

    This report is the product of our consultations with Canadians, provincial, territorial and municipal governments, Indigenous governments and representative organizations, youth, patients and experts in relevant fields.

    It has been a privilege to consult with so many people over the last five months, and we are deeply thankful to all those who provided their input, time and energy to us.

    The legality of cannabis varies from country to country. Possession of cannabis is illegal in most countries and has been since the beginning of widespread cannabis.
