By William J. Cromie Gazette Staff The new study of cognitive changes caused by heavy marijuana use has found no lasting effects 28 days after quitting. Following a month of abstinence, men and women who smoked pot at least 5,000 times in their lives performed just as well on psychological tests as people who used pot sparingly or not at all, according to a report in the latest edition of the Archives of General Psychiatry. That's the good news.

The portion about not remembering is always what has fascinated me. When high, you focus so much clearly on the present and find the simple pleasures in things ordinarily taken for granted.

I havent gone to the Dr. yet ( i guess I dont want him to say I do have ADHD) but I have all but one of the ADHD/ADD symptoms. I hate it and realised that I have been self medicating for a few years now. There is, like with any thing a fine line of just enough and to much. To much food=get fat, to much tea=gotta pea and no sleep, to much Dr. given or over the counter drug= a lot of crap and non of it good...you get the point.

It's something most seasoned pot smokers already know, but still it's nice to get more scientific confirmation: Marijuana doesn't make you wreck your car. Subjects show almost identical driving skills just before and just after smoking marijuana, according to a study published in the March issue of the Journal of Psychoactive Drugs . Investigators from Hartford Hospital in Connecticut and the University of Iowa Carver College of Medicine measured the simulated driving performance of 85 people in a double-blind, placebo controlled trial. Volunteers responded to various simulated events associated with auto crash risk, such as avoiding a driver who was entering an intersection illegally, deciding to stop or go through a changing traffic light, responding to the presence of emergency vehicles, avoiding colliding with a dog who entered into traffic, and maintaining safe driving during a secondary (in-the-car) sound distraction.
