There is scientific evidence that proves the harms associated with marijuana. Why pro marijuana advocates deny them is beyond reason, but it's time to set the record straight.

Smoking super-strength cannabis or 'spice' may trigger deadly seizures, claims new research

Trials on mice found THC - which causes the 'high' in weed, can induce seizures
The same was shown for JWH-018 - the main part of the synthetic cannabis spice
Japanese researchers have described their findings are being 'quite important'
Skunk, made mostly of THC, dominates the illegal British market of marijuana

Research: Preliminary research links habitual marijuana use with inhibited mental development.

"The onset of schizophrenia and addiction-related syndromes has historically been observed during late adolescence and early adulthood. While the neurodevelopmental process underlying the conditions remain largely unknown, the ongoing studies being done by Tseng and his team at Rosalind Franklin suggest that the habitual use of cannabis may be linked to a three-fold increase in the risk of onset for these conditions."

“It’s clear that in teenagers there is an association with smoking marijuana and increased risk of developing schizophrenia. This has been validated across the last 15-20 years,” said Tseng."

Heavy marijuana use in the late teen years puts men at a higher risk for death by age 60, a new long-term study suggests.

"Cannabis users have poorer health in general. You'd expect there to be increased mortality risk," Krakower told CBS News. He pointed to another long-term study linking early heavy marijuana use with lung cancer, and a second study that associates the drug with increased heart problems."

One Minute of Marijuana Secondhand Smoke Exposure Impairs Blood Vessel Function

“The bottom line is that one minute of moderate levels of secondhand smoke from marijuana was enough to prevent blood vessels from functioning efficiently for more than 90 minutes after the exposure (the effect of tobacco smoke resolves within 30 minutes). The effect occurred even when the marijuana lacked THC and when the marijuana was burned without rolling paper; it is an effect of smoke from burned plant material. There were no seeds or stems or pesticides in the marijuana."

How pot harms your baby's brain: Smoking cannabis in pregnancy 'impairs memory, decision-making and personality'

Brain scans compared development of three groups of children - those exposed to cannabis, those exposed to tobacco and a control group. Results show thicker prefrontal cortex in children exposed to pot in womb. Prefrontal cortex controls memory, decision-making, complex cognition and is linked to a person's personality.

Marijuana Use and Emphysema.... "In the paper, Martin Johnson, MD, of the department of respiratory medicine at Glasgow (Scotland) Royal Infirmary, and colleagues discuss the cases of four men who regularly smoked marijuana but did not smoke much tobacco, and who developed emphysema in the upper areas of their lungs. "Our cases are of particular interest, not just because of their young age, but also because of the unusual pattern of emphysema and the relatively low level of exposure to tobacco smoke compared with that more commonly associated with emphysema," Johnson writes."

Smoking high-strength cannabis may damage nerve fibers in brain

"The study is thought to be the first to look at the effects of cannabis potency on brain structure, and suggests that greater use of skunk may cause more damage to the corpus callosum, making communications across the brain’s hemispheres less efficient."

Renowned Alzheimers researcher Dr. Vincent Fortanasce say’s marijuana use may
lead to the disease.

(We already know that pesticides/insecticides commonly sprayed on marijuana (organophosphates) are linked to Autism and other severe neurological damage. Alzheimer's is a progressive, neurodegenerative disease. It causes nerve cells in the brain to die. Alzheimers follows along the same line as Autism. Permanent neurological damage.)

Pesticides commonly used on marijuana linked to Autism.

A new study released by U.C Davis found an alarming connection between organophosphates and neurological delays in fetuses and children, even at low levels of exposure.

The study found that women living within a mile of agricultural fields that are sprayed with pesticides were much more likely to have children who are developmentally delayed and autistic, but it’s not just agricultural crops that are soaked in pesticides. The marijuana boon is creating it’s own casualties. Pesticides commonly used on marijuana are Phosmet, Diazinon, and Avid...
