Myth: Cannabis’ active ingredient THC gets stored in body fat and its effects can last days or even weeks Fact: It is true that cannabis (like many other drugs) enters the body’s fat stores, and it is for this reason that it can be detected long after use, but that is the only part of this myth which is true. Myth: Cannabis use causes memory loss and a general reduction in logic and intelligence Myth: Cannabis has been scientifically proven to be harmful Sources:1. Jamie Frater
