Smoking high potency ‘skunk-like’ cannabis can damage a crucial part of the brain responsible for communication between the two brain hemispheres, according to a new study by scientists from King’s College London and Sapienza University of Rome.

Another garbage “study”, akin to saying “wine or brandy are OK, but vodka or whiskey is not”.  BULLSHIT.  The difference between strong weed and old weed is people smoked the old stuff by the joint, and the stronger stuff by the toke.  If anything, the stronger the weed, the less other pollutants they inhale.

The large nerve bundle between the brain hemispheres is called the Corpus Callosum and is much larger in women than in men.  The “study” did not mention gender differences, which could be the source of the difference .  Nor are any apparent differences detected in people who have used cannabis all their lives, compared with those that never used the plant.

This is likely another fund-generating article by mercenary researchers working for the large pharmaceutical companies or others that stand to gain from demonizing cannabis.  In the U.S. alone, opiate sales are down more than 25% in states where cannabis is legal, and this translates into a lot of money, hence their zeal to misinform.  I say this is BULLSHIT.

    please state your research. I am also sick of the bullshit science on both sides of the coin.
    “my brothers sisters cousin had blah blah and did blah blah blah and now he can see again”
    “recent studies” (which?)
    “quoted sources” (who?)
    If cannabis is going to be a legit medicine, lets get legit! Do the science and quote the source, like the big pham companies do!!
