Smoking marijuana may cause early puberty and stunts growth in boys — ScienceDaily.

BULLSHIT ALERT!

Causality is not proven here.  It has been my experience that kids that mature earlier, are more likely to hang out with older kids and emulate their behaviors.  A more correct link would say “early maturity increases likelihood of marijuana use”.

The other misleader– that makes the authors’ intentions suspect– is the mention of “marijuana-addicted”.  This is clearly intended to mislead since any qualified researcher knows that cannabis is no more addictive than video games, sweets, television, or other distractions to study– which is ALSO correlated to lower IQ kids.  These researchers fall all over each other to blame marijuana, when it is the other way around–  the early maturing, often scholarly-challenged– seek association with older kids, leading them to smoke cigarettes earlier, use marijuana earlier, drink alcohol earlier, and engage in sexual activities earlier, but the CANNABIS IS NOT CAUSAL!

This article should be readily identified as an egregious attempt to mislead us, with the wording as well as the erroneous leaps to invalid conclusions.  One has to wonder how much these mercenary “researchers” were paid– by big pharma– to cast marijuana in a negative light.
