Cannabis far more toxic to the adolescent brain

The Irish Independent highlights some unpublished research:

CANNABIS is far more toxic to the brains of young people who are exposed to the drug, than it is to adults, according to ground-breaking new Irish research.

The unpublished work, by scientists at Trinity College, Dublin, includes technology which actually takes photographs of subjects’ brains.

Studies into cannabis, running in tandem, point to a difference in the way the brain operates for cannabis users and non-cannabis users.

But the research also suggests that the drug is more toxic to youngsters.
