Weed use not linked to later health problems, study says

Hurray for science stepping in and supporting your mid-afternoon date with Mary Jane.

A study published by the American Psychological Association reveals that teens smoking copious amounts of chronic does not “appear to be linked to later physical or mental health issues such as depression, psychotic symptoms, or asthma.”

While the debate over the legalization of sweet leaf has been going on for quite some time now, this new study comes to our attention at an interesting time. Just a week ago, D.A.R.E. posted that they support the legalization of recreational gonga, then reportedly claimed the post was “an error” and that they do not in fact have five on it. (We can’t wait to see how this continues to unravel.)

Now, it probably still isn’t wise to operate heavy machinery or show up to work blazed out of your skull. Plus, Complex also brings up the good point that synthetic bud probably isn’t as good for you in large doses.

At least we know for the time being, though, that all-natural weed reportedly isn’t linked to having a mid-life mental meltdown.
