As a teacher, I also have considerable experience with marijuana smoking students. One's ability in math and science falls drastically when teens begin smoking weed. One's motivation toward education also dramatically tanks.

The science is sound on these same points. Marijuana use lowers IQ and significantly reduces educational outcomes, especially when use begins during the teen years. Use among teens in Colorado and Washington has significantly increased since legalization.
All you described in your rant is losers who just so happened to smoke marijuana. If it lowers IQ then please explain how? And then explain why it only happens to certain ppl. Bc I know more ppl that are successful that smoke than unsuccessful that smoke.

Question for the pro pot guys. How many people do you honestly know that have smoked pot on a daily basis for 20 plus years ? Instead of daily lets say 3-5 times a week. Legalize pot and this will be realist, people will smoke daily.

How many people do you know that drink everyday? Like it or not alcohol is a drug. A much more deadly one at that.

So does that mean you don't know anyone that has smoked pot 3-5 days a week for 20+ years??

Because I honestly so know people that have, and it is very obvious the changes it has made to them. Speech is the most obvious. They work everyday etc... But I have known these guys all their lives and have watch them change. Not really close friends, guess that makes it easier for me to notice. Haven't researched it like you guys. Just hope my kids never use it daily for years at a time when they grow up.

The slurred speech over time is usually a sign of a pill popper. A serious problem going on worldwide.

The attributing of negative effects to other factors is a sure sign of a pot head. A serious problem going on world wide.

Denial is a very common side. It's really not affecting me negatively at all ...

I can handle it...

No, these guys are just plain ole pot heads.. Work everyday pot heads.. I really don't care if it's legal. Hope I can convince my kids not to. And hope all you guys don't regret letting y'all's kids smoke it. Good luck.

Everyone has their own point of view on every subject. Lets get over it and talk about fishing.

I'm by no means "pro pot" bc it's illegal. Honestly even if it was illegal I probably wouldn't be "pro" if that means being an everyday user. All I'm saying is as long as you don't condone it for the youth why put a stereotype on someone that controls their own destiny weather it's with pot or alcohol or pills or black tar. It is what it is but to say if you smoke regularly your automatically dumber is a myth no matter what science you claim. The studies that show that ppls IQ reduce bc of thc if be willing to bet they aren't just on that.

Of course they aren't just on that bc it's a "gateway" drug

yes in Louisiana you can fire anyone for any reason......legally......
that does mean dodilly squat when it comes to civil court....

You can also get sued for any damyum reason by any dayum pot head and or drunk out there......

This idea that you can "fire" at will is absolutely horse ****.......

trust me on this........if you feel that you can "fire" all you want.......NEVER become the boss......you will bankrupt your employer

The difference I see is that MOST ppl who drink enough to be over the limit still want to drive even tho they are impaired... Ppl who smoke have no desire to get behind the wheel.
