" Long-term cannabis use may detrimentally affect IQ, learning and processing speed, and even shrink the size of the brain’s hippocampus over time, according to a new study based on over four decades’ worth of cohort research."
“They found that long-term cannabis users had smaller overall hippocampal volumes compared to non-users, and smaller volumes in five of twelve subfields of the hippocampus, including the hippocampal-amygdala transition area. The long-term users also had smaller overall hippocampal volumes than the other midlife recreational cannabis users.”
I am trying to find out who funds this page, but the science looks good.
It’s a drug, of course it’s going to affect the brain if you are constantly stoned. It doesn’t take a genius to come to that conclusion. Tell me about a street drug that doesn’t affect the brain? I’ll give you the Nobel prize if you do.
