Want To Do Better In School?

You might consider giving up pot:
Marijuana, it seems, is not a performance-enhancing drug. That is, at least, not among young people, and not when the activity is learning.

A study published Tuesday in the Journal of Clinical Psychiatry finds that when adolescents stop using marijuana — even for just one week — their verbal learning and memory improve. The study contributes to growing evidence that marijuana use in adolescents is associated with reduced neurocognitive functioning.

Pot isn't addictive!
Overdosing on pot doesn't happen!
Pot is not associated with cancer!!
Big evil corporations aren't targeting American yoots with pot like Big Tobacco is doing!!1!1!
yet effects such as these in this study are ignored because they go against the narrative that pot is harmless.
