Memory Bowl

I'm sure the pro-"thriving criminal underworld" fanatics will slip this news into their collect back pockets as yet more evidence that "drugs are bad."

In a study of long-term and shorter-term marijuana users, researchers in Greece found that both groups performed more poorly on tests of memory, attention and other cognitive abilities than a comparison group who'd only occasionally used the drug.

Long-term users—who'd smoked four or more joints per week for at least 10 years—showed the greatest deficits.
In other news, people who ate fast food every day for 10 years are grossly obese, people who drink too much have liver problems, and too much sugar can cause adult-onset diabetes in children.

This blog is based on a true story.
