Do you just not meet people you like anymore?

The thing that stopped me from taking up weed was seeing my degenerate father using it (and my IQ is suppressed enough as it is). Certainly don't recommend it for skafish - no good for motivation. Still should be decriminalized everywhere.

There are actually recent twin studies that concluded there is no proof of any link to heavy use of it and IQ decrease. I think some of the claims made about it are based more on fear mongering then any credible research. I have seen it have really negative impacts on the lives of people who overused it but I really think the same can be said for alcohol. Personally I think the latter is worse.

I'm glad I didn't really get into weed when I was younger though.

The IQ claims are related to the "you're burning your brain cells" thing, and there are a million studies out there disproving that level of impact on brain structures caused by weed. Especially if the user started later in life, not in development stages.
But I agree with ardour, in Ska's case it would be very bad - especially because of his aversions and the fact that he'd probably hate himself for it.

Weed is so chill, I'd be more concerned seeing teens drinking than smoking a joint, for sure.

...There has been some research suggesting permanent cognitive damage in young people (not sure if this study has since been debunked):

I tend to agree that it isn't a good idea to smoke it at a younger age but you have to question whether a lot of kids that do don't already come from backgrounds that predisposed them to an I.Q drop regardless. It's kind of difficult to establish whether correlation is also causation here.

The level of impact on cognitive function related to weed depends on the age of onset, how much and for how long it was used and also how they're using it, apparently dabbing is raising concerns (too much THC). There are very conflicting ideas as to if the damage is permanent - or if there are even substantial differences in users/non-users brains, especially those who are not heavy users and had exposure to weed later in life. But, everyone seems to agree that it's more dangerous for teenagers since they're also way more likely to develop dependence. Also, genetic factors are related to a predisposition for drug abuse and in most studies they don't mention if the participants use any other substance, which could probably be circumstancial/inconclusive but it's good to take into consideration.

I'm not going around distributing joints and telling teens not to drink, but I believe weed is way less dangerous if you account for the overall experience.

I can talk to almost anyone, but whether they would they want to talk to me is a different matter. Sometimes I use a mobility scooter, and that is when one becomes strangely invisible.
You have to grab the moment, or it will be gone in a twinkling. Gone forever like childrens' laughter. Lost - like tears in rain.
