There Are Major Side Effects To Marijuana But It’s Not What You Think

According to reports, a new study has confirmed what millions of marijuana smokers have known all along – that the worst side effect from marijuana is getting arrested.

Well, that and periodontal disease.

According to researchers at Duke University, and senior author of the study, Terrie Moffitt, “the only measures that seem to indicate any real serious health problem was periodontal disease.”

“Anything you smoke, heats up your gums and causes inflammation and inflammation is bad for your teeth,” she said.

Notably, however, the researchers were unable to find a link between adult use of marijuana and poor lung function, systemic inflammation, body mass index, blood pressure and metabolic health. Essentially, the study has shown that people who smoked marijuana for up to 20 years, were as healthy as people who didn’t smoke marijuana at all.

The same research team found in a previous study, however, that marijuana users were at a “higher risk of cognitive decline and decent into lower social and economic strata,” but the side effects end there since there doesn’t seem to be physical health issues related to marijuana use.

While it is common knowledge that cognitive decline can occur in some chronic users, the question of lower social and economic status undoubtedly needs to be addressed. This is because such classifications may result from decades of a police state drug war that confines even the most peaceful, unoffensive marijuana users to cages and a life of second-class citizenship, particularly when it comes to employment.

Simply from observing these studies and personal observation of the world around them, it is clear that the drug war is infinitely more dangerous to both marijuana users and non-users, than the plant could ever be.
