▸ [Welp] Teenage marijuana use linked to declines in intelligence later in life - Associated Press

NEW YORK: Teens who routinely smoke marijuana risk a long-term drop in their IQ, a new study suggests. The researchers didn’t find the same IQ decline for people who became frequent users of pot after 18.

Although experts said the new findings are not definitive, they fit with earlier signs that the drug is especially harmful to the developing brain.

“Parents should understand that their adolescents are particularly vulnerable,” said lead researcher Madeline Meier of Duke University. Meier and colleagues reported their work online Monday in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. It was funded with governmental grants from the United States and Britain and by a foundation in Switzerland.

I’m extremely allergic to it. But yeah.

There should be a strain of thought and efforts to figure out why America came to be so dependent on these substances - 

and how to change that - structurally. Like how to change suburbs. How to find activities for youth etc. (It’s a global problem. Not only limited to here.)
