Marijuana is the world’s most widely used illicit drug. But smoke too many joints too soon, and you might lose IQ points: A new study suggests extensive marijuana use starting as a teenager could lead to cognitive decline.
In a study of 1,037 New Zealanders followed from birth to age 38, people who began using marijuana as adolescents and used it extensively for years saw their IQs drop by about eight points. What’s more, among adolescent-onset users, quitting the drug did not reverse the mental deficits.
“Marijuana is not harmless, and particularly not for adolescents,” said study author Madeline Meier, a psychologist at Duke University. Meier’s findings were reported Aug. 27 in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
Researchers gave study participants an IQ test at age 13, before the start of marijuana use, and again at age 38, after some had developed “cannabis dependence”— defined as continued use of the drug in spite of major health, social, and/or legal problems from using it.
To get a sense of how significant a decline of eight IQ points is, consider this: Having an average IQ of 100 puts you in the 50th percentile for intelligence, whereas an IQ of 92 slides you down to the 29th percentile.
In addition to showing IQ decline, stoners performed worse than their counterparts on tests of five specific areas of mental function, including memory, processing speed, and executive functioning. When surveyed, family members and relatives of participants also reported noticing more attention and memory problems among those who used marijuana extensively.
'The effects were global.'“The effects were global,” said Meier.“Marijuana use is associated with impairment in all of these areas.”
During adolescence, the brain undergoes extensive development, and heavy marijuana use might be interfering with this mental maturation. Although previous studies have linked heavy marijuana use to cognitive impairment, they couldn’t prove whether marijuana use caused the impairment, or the impairment caused the marijuana use.”It was a chicken-or-egg problem,” said Meier.
“This study’s unique in that they’ve got very good assessment of people’s cognitive abilities before marijuana use,” said Australian psychologist and epidemiologist Wayne Hall of The University of Queensland. Others in the field agree.“It certainly confirms our earlier studies,” said cognitive scientist Staci Gruber of Harvard University, whose research suggests that starting to smoke marijuana before age 16 is more likely to cause cognitive impairment than starting later. Neither Hall nor Gruber were involved in Meier’s study.
Australian psychologist Nadia Solowij of the University of Wollongong wrote in an email, like Hall and Gruber, she found the study convincing.
I can tell you from what I can see. When my man smoked pot I had a very bad sex life. It was hard for him to stop smoking but he did mainly because he could tell a big difference in his drive at work and at home.

Research clearly demonstrates that marijuana has the potential to cause problems in daily life or make a person's existing problems worse. In one study, heavy marijuana abusers reported that the drug impaired several important measures of life achievement, including physical and mental health, cognitive abilities, social life, and career status.9 Several studies associate workers' marijuana smoking with increased absences, sex drive, tardiness, accidents, workers' compensation claims, and job turnover

the sequester will cut out the pot copters over peoples gardens and disturbing their sleep that's a good thing that was tax money wasted.anyways just opened up the mexican mkt for their pot. with lot crime and killing with it.and allowed the crooked people in our own elected system to prosper. i will be glad when pot is legal then the mexicans are finished and the crooks that uphold for them against the american so they can make the big bucks the pot.that would save the tax payer trillions of dollars and cut crime in half on the borders.

if it is legalized,the state will tax the h#ll out of it.the sellers will raise the price for it.the mexican cartel will have a field day flooding our country with pot laced with other drugs and the people who cultivate it will have to register it.so you will still have big problems eighter way it runs.just take time to think about that for awhile.but that's just another way for the government to take in revenue.lol.pot is a gateway drug anyway,it leads to heavier stuff.maybe not for everybody,but most will be influenced by it to a degree.
