Marijuana: The facts you don't want to hear

(9:33) According to a scientific study in 1974, marijuana kills brain cells. But after it was revealed how the study was conducted, a different conclusion emerged.

The BoreMe editor recently put up some useful videos on critical thinking, but appears to not have learnt anything from them. Please could you stop bolstering your own arguements with biased hypotheses and balance your arguments in a more intellgent and educated fashion; afterall, this site is about 'Topical, intelligent fun', your words not mine. I love this site, but this is begining to get a bit ridiculous. Although, I concede that it is your site and you can do whatever you like with it, however, you need intelligent responses to keep the debate going.

Do you suppose, Filmaddict, that perhaps the editors post polemical content on both sides of an issue, and let the viewers hash it out?

I would not have made that comment if I thought the BoreMe editor was remotely objective or unbiased. Where are his intelligent and valid videos (arguments) against the use of marijuana? One also must include such in polemics. If you can find one then please do make me aware of it; and if there are any, he no doubt marginalises it with a contemptible editorial. Therefore, there is no real 'hashing' out to be had on the opposing spectrum of any of his arguments. It all appears to be propaganda IMHO.

I don't disagree with what you are saying. Of course I also think that most editorial policies (even in the press) support a particular viewpoint, and BoreMe is no different. I tend to visit sites and read papers that challenge at least some of my views and assumptions since engaging with the ideas alters my perspective, even insomuch as helping me to understand another's viewpoint. Personally, I don't agree with the above video, so I try to make a case of more thoughtful use of the research. But ultimately (even in our little dialogue) the most important thing is the discourse, which has the power to make me think, and hopefully change.

Used to work towards promoting Cannabis and it's many uses and it'll never be legalised. The active compounds in it are useful for so many diseases and disorders. Putting chemical companies out of pocket. The fibres are as soft as Cotton but 5 times longer and require little water and no fertiliser, pesticide or fungicide. Unlike Cotton which uses 25% of all of these agents used in the US today. Chemical companies even further out of pocket. And let's not forget that it's also called weed, cos it's very easy to grow. The Governments of the world want you smoking cigarettes and drinking alcohol cos they are difficult at best to make at home and they generate tax for them to waste on phony wars. Cannabis would generate nothing! If you want it, grow. Find the book, Tricameral Sensimilla and do it yourself! Also read the Emperor wears no clothes if you want to learn more about the health benefits and uses of Cannabis.

As a recreational drug, I have nothing against it, but marijuana is not 'harmless'. The science cited in this film is just as bad as the science they are critiquing. In adults cannibis use is mostly innocuous, barring the clear links with short-term memory impairment, and dream loss in long-term users. Cannibis changes lung function (possibly due to the manner of inhaling, or to permanent changes in the alveoli), and is correlated with, but not necessarily the cause of increase lung cancer incidence. In adolescents however, the story is worse. There is evidence that measures of attention and problem solving are impaired. Also brain scans of adults who started before 16 years of age show abnormal activation patterns which may be linked to poorer attention and cognitive function. By the way, "may" and "should" are the words of science. We accept that every hypothesis is subject to disproof, so we use conditional language.

Latest comment: Can you show your sources. Stop spreading lies these studies you talk about have been shown to be misleading.
