Cannabis is a topic that is really topical. At a time when more and more countries are legalizing it and where it is increasingly recommended and authorized for therapeutic purposes, the studies concerning its effects are constantly increasing.
Today, we present the results of a study published in the renowned scientific journal Clinical Psychological. This study was conducted by the University of California and Duke University among 947 people whose behaviors were analyzed from birth to age 38.
The results are without appeal: when an individual consumes cannabis 4 times a week or more, it increases the risk of having relationship problems, financial problems and problems at work. It appears that these very regular smokers are overwhelmingly worse off than their parents, have fewer positions of responsibility and earn less. It would seem that they are also much more subject to financial problems and that their social relations with their family, friends or spouse are more complex.
Magdalena Cerda in charge of the study for the University of California explains: “Our research is not politically oriented, it is not for or against the legalization of cannabis, we have only proven that high consumption was inevitably detrimental in the long term, most of the time engaging in private problems of a relational or financial relation, but also professional with the loss of employment. social isolation.”
The study was compared to a study analyzing the behavior of alcohol users at the same frequency and it would seem that alcohol has much less negative impact on social, financial and professional life.
Which does not mean that we can fall back on alcohol. As always everything is a matter of MO-DE-RA-TION!
