Gov. wants our youth to smoke cigarettes and not cannabis * 1

"Wait a second. . . . Nicotine does not interfere with cognitive ability. So if you are an adolescent and you are smoking marijuana and going to school, it's going to interfere with your capacity to learn. So what is worse, as an adolescent right now? To have basically something that is jeopardizing your development educationally or to smoke a cigarette that, when you are 60 years of age, is going to lead to impaired pulmonary function and perhaps cancer? . . . I would argue that you do not want to mess with your cognitive capacity, that that is a very large price to pay."

:trololol:
Kind of like the election between Kerry and Bush.  You really got to pick the lesser of two evils. Douche and a Turd sandwich.
Why is it hard to believe that most kids really don't fuck with either. If they are raised right, they can make educated decisions. Most of the kids I grew up with that could readily get weed or cigarettes didn't do either.

The government really has no grasp on reality.

I've heard about studies that said people who smoke weed usually score higher on their SATs and stuff because of INCREASED cognitive ability.

Even in the movie Super High Me, Benson did better on his SATs while high than when sober.lol. He is an adult, but still it obviously improves some brain functioning.

Neurocognition in college-aged daily marijuana users

"Results: Marijuana users were high functioning, demonstrating comparable IQs to controls and relatively better processing speed."

But it also says...

"Marijuana users demonstrated relative cognitive impairments in verbal memory, spatial working memory, spatial planning, and motivated decision making."

Sounds about right :lol:

Yeah you right. I guess you don't notice much when you're younger. Then you grow up and realize it sooner or later.

Only a fucktard would think smoking multiple times a day and planning for it would somehow keep you smart.

I took two years off smoking pot when I went to college.  I thought it would interfere with my studies.  I started smoking again and got almost 100% in calculus class.  I decided that if you put in the time to study then it's OK to smoke.
