Long Term Cannabis Use Doesn’t Cause Cognitive Decline, Lucky You

According to this study long-term cannabis use has little effect on cognitive function.  Of course you’ll have to pay to read the fucking study, but hey at least Time did a nice little write-up about it, which I’m guessing better tuned to your short attention span anyhow.

The gist of the study is that 2000 Australian men and women were studied for a period of 8 years.  Periodically the participants were given exams to test their cognitive abilities.  Participants were also asked to volunteer information about their usage habits.

With this information I hope that you will now feel free to continue your weed smoking unencumbered by fear of cognitive attenuation.
