cannabis use discussion

  • Start by reading this article, which gives a simplified overview of the attached research article. https://www.forbes.com/sites/alicegwalton/2014/10/…
  • Open the attached research article and read the sections titled, “Why are we concerned about recreational cannabis use,” and “Adverse health effects of chronic cannabis use” (this is a very long section and you don’t need to read the entire thing. SKIP: cannabis dependence, The psychosocial consequences of adolescent cannabis use, and Cannabis use and mental health). Take a look at Table 1 to see how strong the author feels the evidence is for various effects on health.
  • Answer the following questions:
    1. Why is it challenging to accurately measure the effect of regular cannabis use on health?
    2. Overall, how does cannabis use affect users’ cognitive ability and IQ? From Table 1, how strong is the evidence? Does the evidence prove causation or is it a correlation? Does the age the user starts or the length of time spent smoking marijuana make a difference in the longterm effects?
    3. What effect does marijuana have on the structure of the brain? From Table 1, how strong is the evidence? Does the evidence prove causation or is it a correlation?
    4. What effect does smoking marijuana have on the respiratory system? From Table 1, how strong is the evidence? Does the evidence prove causation or is it a correlation?
    5. Is there enough evidence in this article to draw the conclusion that there is a good possibility that marijuana can negatively impact certain aspects of health?
