Marijuana has harmful effects to the brain but positive effects on emotional health, do the pros and cons balance out? (Links in comments)

4 students were hospitalized at my school yesterday for (unknowingly) eating hash-laced brownies. One fell unconscious and hit their head, and are in critical condition. No emotional boost is worth that.

Depends if the pros last as long as the cons

Now you've opened a can of worms. I'm waiting for the pot deniers to crawl out of the woodwork.

Pro pot and anti pot people both have good points. Though I would not do it myself I do support its legalization.

I personally would not. I've tried it for anxiety and it makes me paranoid.

By emotional I mean it makes you happy. (I don't think I need a link for that). This isn't a question on whether it should be legalized but rather would you personally use it.

I want to try it once but that's it.
How about you?

I probably won't, I've known some people who've done it and couldn't stop. But maybe sometime in the future, but only once. However I support legalization of it.

One problem with the study is that it's correlation so you don't know if people with those brain changes seek out pot more or if pot caused those change (though the latter is reasonable based on other studies). It's also a small sample.

I'm hoping someone follows up in states with legalized pot to test people before and after drug use. I'm sure they can find plenty of volunteers :)

Yeah, I hope they do that soon. Hopefully by some non biased group.
