BETHESDA, MD – The latest news from the National Institute of Health is out. It says teenagers don’t think pot is dangerous. No brainer, right? These results say 60% of high school seniors think it’s not harmful at all.

Well they’re wrong. At least at their age, that much is known. MRI’s have shown that teenagers with a history of smoking weed showed shrinkage in their brain in the areas connected to memory.

Nobody likes shrinkage.

With more states legalizing medicinal and recreational marijuana use, there’s also been a steady increase in teens using pot.

The study however, shows a decrease in the use of cigarettes with teens. Well of course; they’re all getting high, killing their memories, who can remember where they left their smokes?
