What BULLSHIT.  This is worthy of reporting? Shame on you, University of Waterloo.  This useless “study” could easily read “masturbation tied to poorer school performance”, or “discovery of opposite sex tied to poorer school performance”, or “television”, or “cars”, or “sports”, etc.  Of course a distraction might be tied to poorer academic performance, but is the distraction bad?  Is it causal?  Or is it the result of poor academic performance.  I remember how I used to daydream, during a lecture, when I was lost by the subject matter.  Was my daydreaming causal to poor grades, or was it being lost in class that was causal to daydreaming.   When school is a struggle, distractions– of ANY kind– increase.

This useless “study” could just as easily find that students who were struggling in school, might gravitate to distractions such as marijuana, alcohol, or any number of other distraction.  If it’s painful and frustrating to study, a distraction comes to the rescue, so they don’t have to face the reality that their study habits (or IQs) may be lacking.

And a large element of our society wonders why the “establishment” lacks credibility, with garbage “studies” like this.  Shame on Scott Leatherdale and Karen Patte for publishing useless correlations without establishing causality!  I would not be surprised to find that Big Pharma, law enforcement, or others with an anti-marijuana agenda funded this “study”.
