UT Austin: Long-Term Effects of Marijuana

June 1, 2015 -

Researchers at the University of Texas have published their findings on the long-term effects of marijuana use on the brain. Even though alcohol remains legal despite the massive evidence to the dangers of long-term use, the fight to make marijuana legal has frequently depended on it’s effects on the recreational user. But, what are it’s effects on the brain?

Now, the debate has moved into scientific evidence as researchers have provided more evidence to marijuana’s potential role in fighting Alzheimer’s. Their research revealed that earlier onset of regular marijuana use leads to greater structural and functional connectivity in the brain. More research will need to be done in to see the differences caused by, or simply associated with, long-term marijuana use.
