Weed doesn't make you lazy it just makes you realize what things are actually worth doing.

There's a song, ". . . But then I got high." It's just that for example, my next door neighbor has lost herself in the bottom of a Vodka bottle and hasn't worked in 12 years, got 2 DUIs. Husband is a worker bee supporting her drunk ass. I'm thinking we can't protect people from themselves with the criminal laws. Once we go down that road, we don't stop until we've got more people in jail than any other country in the world. Oh wait. . .

Im highly motivated and ambitious and I smoke weed. I dont consider myself an outlier either. Idiot stoners or un-motivated smokers are normally idiots/unmotivated with or without weed.

Same for video games or anything else really. You can abuse pretty much anything.

IQ ? What about memory formation, retention, speed of cognition?

I would bet money that getting hit in the head a couple of times when I was younger has had a more significant effect on my memory formation, retention, and speed of cognition then my frequent pot smoking.

These are all factors in an IQ test.

I have memory problems and I have never smoked pot. I don't think there's evidence that pot adds significant memory problems in most cases. I don't think there is causation between pot use and memory problems, although there might be causation for lack of motivation. I.e. "pot feels better than going to work" sort of thing. Of course this isn't a problem with pot, it's a problem with using a substance for escapism.

We really need more research on pot use and how it can help certain illnesses. But I don't think the US will be involved in said research that the world needs.

Have you ever met a mean Rastafarian? I think not.
