Heavy, persistent pot use linked to economic and social problems at midlife – BULLSHIT ALERT

Source: Heavy, persistent pot use linked to economic and social problems at midlife

Nowhere is causality shown!  Consider– lower IQ kids struggle more in school, achieve less, and have lower-paying and less-skilled jobs later in life.  That has NOTHING to do with cannabis use!  Now, throw in the fact that struggling people are more likely to use a crutch (pot, alcohol, other drugs) to cope with their lives, it is no surprise that “heavy, persistent pot use is linked to economic and social problems at midlife”, but it is MORE likely that the economic and social problems were causal and/or a function of lower IQ, poor parenting, failure in school, etc, etc.

What about all the SUCCESSFUL people that used pot?  Carl Sagan touted its creativity-inspiring values.  Richard Feynmann, a brilliant scientist, smoked pot.  Many successful people have smoked it.  By this BULLSHIT study, from UC Davis– likely funded by Big Pharma– the same logic could be used to say “Pot smokers more likely to be physicists, astrophysicists, and successful in midlife”.

Again, just because something correlates, does NOT imply causality.  If every time I sneeze, the stock market tics up, the correlation can be 100%, but it should be quite obvious that it is merely a coincidence– my sneezing is not affecting the stock market, nor vice versa.  Same with this BULLSHIT study!
