Pot and brain shrinkage?

You into pot? You curious about pot? I’m not pot-curious in the least, when it comes to partaking.

I still can’t fathom why somebody would smoke a weed that smells like a person who hasn’t bathed in a week, but to each his own.

However, I do have curiosities about the politics of pot.

And there is a new study that may explain how Obama got brain-damaged.

Could pot have shrunk the brain of the man whom Liberals call, “America’s most intellectual president?”

According to Yahoo News,

The study, led by neuroscientists at the University of Colorado at Boulder and published Jan. 28 in the Journal of Neuroscience, points to continued uncertainty about how pot use alters the structure of the brain. Even so, other studies have found the drug has short-term effects on learning and memory.

The latest research comes as access to pot is expanding following 2012 ballot measures in Washington state and Colorado that legalized its recreational use, and voter-approved measures last year to do the same in Alaska and Oregon. The drug remains illegal under federal law.

Kent Hutchison, a clinical neuroscientist at the University of Colorado, Boulder, and the senior author of the study, said his team reviewed a number of scientific papers that showed marijuana causes different parts of the brain to shrink, and his team found the studies were not consistent.

“So far, there’s not a lot of evidence to suggest that you have these gross volume changes” in the brain, Hutchison said in a phone interview.

Could marijuana effects on the brain be the next “global climate change?”

When you consider all the hubbub over the effects of smoking cigarettes, it’s interesting that nobody mentions smoke when it comes to the new government income source.
