  1. Not one state will allow recreational marijuana to be purchased by kids, accidents happen, kids can get marijuana easily at schools. Are there irresponsible parents? Older brothers? Sisters out there? Always. But the option for kids with medical issues that can benefit from the medicinal use should be allowed. She pretty much acknowledges that everything she โ€œstatesโ€ in this video is based off of inconclusive evidence.

  3. You should know that marijuana has two kinds theres indica and sativa. Sativa is the one more n likey to ruin your brain because it give you more of a head heah. indica gives you a body high thats less likey cuz it dosent mess with your head as much

  4. I really think it's funny how so many fucking people die, families get destroyed, violence occurs, etc. from alcohol but that's ok but pot COULD lower your IQ so we cant do that oh no that's horrible

  5. They can use me as a long term user "guinea pig" example any day. Test away! However I agree strongly that under 18's shouldn't be allowed to use ANY drug even if it's a soft one like Cannabis. Young brains need to develop fully and shouldn't be exposed to chemicals. In my experience, people who start using Cannabis in their teens can come unstuck later in life.

So you will need a "Control" group. Of 2000-3000 teens and this "Control" must have none, 0! 0! Marijuana use. 0! For 40 Years. Then compare it to the Non-Control group and then, show the results.
