Marijuana and health effects

I’m too lazy to do a writeup cuz I don’t smoke pot. One day I’ll get around to writing a blog post for some friends and to illuminate the brainwashed with empirical and falsifiable science. But for now I’ll just provide links for the layman and journals when I come across them. Don’t have any hand picked journals from my trusted neuroscientists yet but the neurotoxicity in these article agree with their general sentiment.
