Adolescents who use both marijuana and alcohol during middle school and high school are more likely to have poor academic performance and mental health during high school, according to a new study that followed a group of students over a seven-year period. However, the study found marijuana use was predictive of poorer functioning across more areas, including lower academic functioning, being less prepared for school, more delinquent behavior and poorer mental health.

These clearly are not “researchers” but naive students, likely pushed down this path by professors’ personal agendas.  Here, they naively assume that alcohol and cannabis are causal, but it is MORE likely that troubled teens hang with the wrong crowds, seek escapes from their academic foibles, and do poorly in school irrespective of any drug or alcohol use.  It is the poor academic performance that is causal to their chemical escapes.  What would YOU prefer– beating your head against the wall in a struggle with schoolwork that you do not understand, or enjoy a buzz?  The answer should be obvious to the “researchers” but I’d bet that Big Pharma is likely to fund the professor, who then urges his students to find negativity associated with cannabis.
