I’ve known this for years.
When I was a teenager we called the kids who smoked pot regularly burn-outs. This is probably because even though the teens in question were young, the pot smoking, cigarette smoking, late nights etc. made them seem unenergetic, dumb, boring and well, burned out. Good for nothing.
I know, this pot is better now. Right.
Now I’ve had a lifetime of observing these people. It doesn’t make them energetic, smart or interesting, I’ll tell you that.
Now Mother Jones is promoting a book by Jew Berenson that highlights the long standing research detailing Marijuana’s connection to violent crime and mental illness.
