Marijuana myths go up in smoke: Study shows IQ, academic performance not impacted by cannabis use

Cannabis, a wonderful food-medicine, has been demonized for decades. No plant has ever been fraught with such extreme controversy. Police raids are conducted to seize and burn this plant and to lock growers away. Innocent people are shot and killed in their own homes because of the war on this plant.

Fraudulent and incomplete studies have attempted to darken people’s perspectives about this plant, but those who know it best, who have firsthand experience with it, understand that it’s harmless and actually healing. Cannabis use doesn’t lower a person’s IQ, as suggested by a widely publicized 2012 New Zealand study in The Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. A separate review of that data, published in the same journal, proved that IQ changes were the result of socioeconomic differences and not cannabis use.

In fact, the demonized plant is actually beneficial for connecting the nervous system of the body with the immune system, helping the two systems communicate through the suppressed endocannabinoid receptors in the human body.

Marijuana myths going up in smoke

Cannabis isn’t making people stupid. New data published in the Journal of Psychopharmacology is making the myths surrounding cannabis use go up in smoke.

A group of 2,235 participants was first given the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children 3rd Edition at an individual clinic session when they were eight years old. When they turned 15, adolescents were administered the Vocabulary and Matrix Reasoning subsections of the Wechsler Abbreviated Scale of Intelligence. At this point, the adolescents provided cumulative lifetime cannabis use data by reporting their cannabis use on a scale of, ‘never’, ‘less than 5 times’, ‘5–19 times’, ’20–49 times’, ’50–99 times’ and ‘100 times or more’. They also reported their cigarette and alcohol use on the same scale. At age 16, the adolescents’ educational performance was measured using Key Stage 4 national testing.

On the surface of the study results, it seemed that cannabis use caused lower educational performance. “Increasing cumulative cannabis use correlated with poorer educational performance at the age of 16 (p<0.001). Cannabis use of over 50 times predicted an average score of 11.6 percentage points lower than never-users.”

However, once the confounding factor of cigarette use was factored in, it suddenly became clear why educational performance fell.

The study finds, “Cumulative cigarette use was the key attenuator of the association between cumulative cannabis use and both IQ … and educational performance. Further, cumulative cigarette use remained negatively associated with both outcomes in the fully adjusted models. Those who had used cigarettes >100 times were estimated to have an age 15 adjusted IQ 3.2 points lower … and an adjusted educational score 7.4 percentage points lower … than never-users of cigarettes.”

“[T]hose who had used cannabis [greater than or equal to] 50 times did not differ from never-users on either IQ or educational performance,” the study concludes, pointing out that cigarette use is the main culprit behind lowered IQs and poorer academic performance.

Do You Live in a State that is Likely to Legalize Marijuana by 2017?

The legalization of marijuana remains a controversial issue as we head into another election year. Many publications, from Rolling Stone Magazine to 24-7 Wall Street, have made predictions about which states will likely legalize cannabis next. Will it be your state?

Much of the information posted has been based on wishful thinking and mainstream rhetoric, but now a 270-page report entitled “The Market for Legal Cannabis Products in the 50 United States” gives some credible predictions for which states will soon legalize marijuana. [1]

Foremost in the report is the assumption that Michigan and Nevada will be the front-runners for establishing a taxed and regulated cannabis industry within the next year, while suggesting that Indiana, Ohio, and Texas will probably be three of the last states to make similar reforms.

FDA to Approve Cannabis-Based Pharmaceutical for Multiple Health Conditions

GW Pharmaceuticals is expected to be given a green light for a cannabidiol drug (marijuana-based medicine) which has shown promise in the treatment of epileptic children, cutting epileptic attacks down by as much as 100% (45% average). When will the Feds admit cannabis is a medical miracle?

In one breath the mainstream medical system has been telling us that ‘cannabis has no medicinal value,’ while the U.S. government has stealthily patented cannabinoid-based medicine which obviously shows that our government officials are well aware that cannabis can be extremely valuable from a medicinal standpoint.

The FDA will soon grant a license to GW Pharmaceuticals for treating patients with multiple sclerosis with a drug called Epidiolex. That’s odd, since the FDA has repeatedly said that marijuana is not ‘safe and effective’ for treating anything. [1]

Similar cannabis-based formulations created by GW Pharmaceuticals and other drug companies are expected to treat autism, muscular dystrophy, glioma, ovarian and pancreatic cancer and schizophrenia, as well as epileptics. Orders for this product are expected to grow 40 times over in the coming years. [2]

Obtained in 2003, one U.S. government patent (US Patent 6630507) titled “Cannabinoids as antioxidants and neuroprotectants” is assigned to The United States of America, as represented by the Department of Health and Human Services. The patent states:

“Cannabinoids have been found to have antioxidant properties, unrelated to NMDA receptor antagonism. This new found property makes cannabinoids useful in the treatment and prophylaxis of wide variety of oxidation associated diseases, such as ischemic, age-related, inflammatory and autoimmune diseases.

The cannabinoids are found to have particular application as neuroprotectants, for example in limiting neurological damage following ischemic insults, such as stroke and trauma, or in the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease and HIV dementia.” [3]
