Teens Not Impacted by Cannabis Use

Prompted by “What about the children?”: http://www.drugwarrant.com/2015/08/what-about-the-children-4/

Chronic marijuana use by teenage boys does not appear to be linked to later physical or mental health issues such as depression, psychotic symptoms or asthma, according to a study published by the American Psychological Association.

“What we found was a little surprising,” said lead researcher Jordan Bechtold, PhD, a psychology research fellow at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. “There were no differences in any of the mental or physical health outcomes that we measured regardless of the amount or frequency of marijuana used during adolescence.”

This, of course, is the best kind of research, as it actually tracked young people over the course of many years, and controlled for other factors such as cigarette smoking, health insurance, etc. (Note: in this particular study, only boys were tracked.)

For years, now, the federal government, led by science-impaired NIDA, plus all the prohibitionists, have claimed that we can’t consider legalizing marijuana for adults because it will inevitably mean more use by teens, leading to all sorts of damage.

Suggestive science (especially backed by unproven claims — e.g. prohibition prevents increased use) is a terrible barrier for condoning liberty-infringing law — the kind of law that hardcore scientifically causes mass harm.

Now if only enough people cared about that fact, but they obviously don’t based upon hardcore science, so excessively back to the crickets chirping, while ignorant dominance continues its horrific reign against healthy reason during the highly destructive and torturous path to the legalization that already exists, according to hardcore science — if you like your constitutional law uncorrupted, of course.

More liberty and law focus: Liberty Shield

I am an honest freak (or reasonably responsibly balanced "misfit", if you prefer) of an artist working and resting to best carefully contribute towards helping society. Too many people abuse reasoning (e.g. 'partial truth = whole truth' scam), while I exercise reason to explore and express whole truth without any conflict-of-interest -- all within a sometimes offbeat style of psychedelic artistry.
