Smoking the equivalent of a single ‘spliff’ of cannabis makes people less willing to work for money while ‘high,’ finds a new study. The research is the first to reliably demonstrate the short-term effects of cannabis on motivation in humans. The researchers also tested motivation in people who were addicted to cannabis but not high during the test, and found that their motivation levels were no different to volunteers in the control group.

Duh, ya think????  Anyone with any experience with cannabis could have told you this without and grant money or research.  It’s like asserting that having alcohol can be relaxing or that drinking too much can make one tipsy.

It’s sad that we spend money on foolishness like this instead of researching the true medical benefits of cannabis.
