The research seems legitimate and competent.  In fairness, the research was done on rats, but could very well translate to humans.

The bottom line is that it is unwise to expose a developing fetus to drugs of ANY kind.  Ladies, you can refrain from alcohol, cannabis, tobacco, drugs, etc for at least 9 months to help ensure a healthy baby.

This paper wants us to believe that cannabis users suffer from more “noise” in the brain, similar to that found in heroin abusers and alcoholics.  Maybe.  Maybe not.  The researchers cannot qualify the “noise”, which may simply be increased creative thinking, under cannabis, which is different from alcohol or opiates.  Another way to paraphrase this is “cannabis users show more brain activity than non-users”.  At this point, it is anyone’s guess as to the details of that activity.

Cannabis often leads to “out of the box” thinking, melding disparate ideas into novel concepts.  The late Carl Sagan felt that this was a good thing, inspiring creativity and insight.
