  1. The center for disease control has never recorded a single death from CANNABIS! Excessive drinking is responsible for more than 4,300 deaths among underage youth each year, and cost the U.S. $24 billion in economic costs in 2010. Although drinking by persons under the age of 21 is illegal, people aged 12 to 20 years drink 11% of all alcohol consumed in the United States.

  2. I agree with what they're saying but if you compare it to Tobacco it's way better first off you smoke anything it's bad for your lungs. She said it makes you more prone to addiction down the line. you got to look at the reasons why they use it for some it's lack of a stable home or being alone or just to have a good time everyone has their own reasons and I believe that they shouldn't be condemned for their actions and shouldn't be seen in the negative way by society because of their decisions unless it's in a harmful way then I agree that person needs help

  3. That’s a dumb conclusion. There are thousand conflicting variables that could have influenced their measures. But anyways: cannabis and booze before 25 is a risk for your prefrontal cortex…so maybe just wait 😉

  4. hundreds of other studies have come up with quite different results. maybe the reason a bad one gets more news play is because there are so few bad ones. because i grew up in the 60,s and was a smoker for many years .i wonder about long term effects. but as of yet i sure have seen no plus or minus so far. i did see one report done with 134 sets of twins and they found no difference between the one that got high and the one that did not get high with they where both not stoned. so i guess its like political polls .pick the one you believe .

  5. As someone who has used marijuana regularly for about 29 years I would say; if it is addictive it is a psychological addiction and not a physical addiction. For me a child of intergenerational alcoholism I would have to say that using cannabis has kept me away from alcoholism and my instincts about staying away from cocaine,heroin and pharmaceuticals has not been eroded

  6. Alcohol better than Cannabis? LmaO Alcohol is the number 1 substance that kills innocent people every day by drunk drivers. She also never mention how much Cannabis was used for the study and for how long. Every person is different health wise.
