Smoking pot as a teen doesn't cause health problems as an adult, study finds
A new study found that smoking pot during adolescence doesn’t cause health problems (like asthma, depression, or psychotic illness) during adulthood. Scientists from The University of Pittsburgh Medical Center and Rutgers University monitored a group of 14-year-old pot-smoking males in the 1980s and tracked them until they were 36-years-old. The subjects smoked pot in varying quantities and frequencies. Researchers found no notable differences between the health prognoses of the different groups.
