Are you getting dumber?
A new study shows that teens who smoke weed regularly are permanently lowering their IQ and will have more memory and attention problems later in life. The research shows that people who started smoking pot in their teens dropped their IQ score an average of eight points when retested as an adult, while people who started smoking it as adults suffered no drop in intelligence. Even those who smoked regularly as teens but then quit still had lowered intelligence.
So, are you getting dumber by smoking weed on the reg?

Starting to smoke has nothing to do with intelligence. In my case, it was curiosity.
Neither does the “lifestyle”, which seems to be quite stereotyped. I’m not exactly sure what your conception of this lifestyle is. For me, I go to my friend’s house, smoke, eat a lot of stuff, have a great time, and then go home. Where in that process, or any process, does the decrease in intelligence take place?

Wow from the looks of things all the potheads sure like to defend their stuff
I’m not sayin that I think pot itself will make you dumber but the lifestyle will & if you start smoking it then your not very smart in the first place imao
from dumb to dumber isnt a very big step. =P

Is it odd that, after doing pot, I actually began to do my work much more often and proficiently?
