For decades, researchers have concluded that marijuana use causes developmental concerns in adolescents’ brains. But a new study has located conflicting proof.
The study, published in the journal Drug and Alcohol Dependence and carried out by Arizona State University and the University of Pittsburgh, located that teen cannabis use does not lead to lasting structural brain modifications.
“Adolescent cannabis use is not related with structural brain variations in adulthood” and “adolescent cannabis use is not related with lasting structural brain variations,” the study authors concluded.
1,000 boys ages 13-19 self-reported their cannabis use annually, and then underwent structural neuroimaging when they have been amongst 30–36 years of age for the study.
