AuntieBS is not a neuroscientist, so to flat-out declare this to be bullshit is out of her league.  But, such “studies” should be viewed with a jaundiced eye, because there is so much negative pressure against cannabis from Big Pharma, so see its use as reducing their profits.

When you read reports of modern cannabis strains being more potent, be wary.  Instead of smoking entire joints, the modern cannabis user enjoys just a toke or two, akin to a shot or two of vodka vs a six pack of beer.  The cannabis ingestion level may be the same, but the tars and combustion byproducts is much less with stronger strains.  Having said that, there are no details as to the amount of cannabis given to the test mice, and how that would extrapolate to human use.  If a human got as wasted as they could possibly be and remain awake, there may not be much remembered.  But, the amount of intoxication under “normal” use, is much less and long-term memory is not affected.

So, I question the veracity of this assertion and remain unconvinced, though I cannot discount it 100%.  As with most things, moderation is a good concept.
