Dubious Study Says Marijuana and Low IQ Scores Related

POT TV – Global TV covers a recent study from New Zealand that claims chronic marijuana use as an adolescent is related to lowered IQ testing scores. Video features sensible comments by Cannabis Culture publisher Jodie Emery.

What the study (and Global TV) fail to mention is that the study does NOT show evidence of a causal relationship, but merely a correlation between the two. There is NO evidence that marijuana causes low IQ scores.

It is the opinion of the editors of Cannabis Culture and Pot TV that the study is suspect for several reasons, and is being used as the basis for dubious media stories. Find out more in this episode of From Under the Influence on Pot TV.
