Marijuana doesn’t help psych problems

Apr 23, 11 Marijuana doesn’t help psych problems

In fact, it may make them worse.

Please allow me to be frank — as I was during a town hall meeting sponsored by Colorado state Sen. Irene Aguilar, a Democrat and a physician (my thanks to her for inviting me to speak):

At that same meeting, I tried to put so-called “medical” marijuana into a larger context that explains why there’s very little, if anything, medically valuable about it. The drug is especially harmful to adolescents, who are in crucial stages of brain growth and development (the human brain doesn’t mature until about the age of 25).
