    I read the article. It says From NIDA at the request of NIDA.

    I posted something in 2004 to point out the climate that your 2006 published paper arose from. If my paper is dated then so is yours. You undermine your initial assertion.

    And I showed you where the exact same studied was denied until it was presented as looking for negative effects. At least you tried to address it this time but NIDA biases out anything that doesn't have a negative hypothesis.

    You also don't seem to understand what the bias argument is talking about. Anything looking for benefits or questioning the veracity or methodology of negative work is summarily rejected and its been that way for 50 years. I don't know whether you read my article from earlier but you clearly do not understand my argument.

    You keep crowing NEJM but beyond them publishing the article they have made no comment on the article or their opinion in the overall science.

    As for this article itself, given the criminality, 'success in life' is a self fulfilling prophecy. Jail and job termination over pot use is a definite detraction as @Hoofbite pointed out.

    I would also reiterate what @gmoney112 said earlier about such studies of wholistic concepts and their ability to control variables. Using such categorization amounts to so much circular reasoning.

    PS no one reads the line by line. I read maybe half of it. I would suggest a different approach if you want people to read your stuff.

    There is all kinds of conflicting literature about pot and memory with the preponderance of the negative from the NIDA regime.

    Lack of variable controls as to your assertions about grades applies. Correlation does not imply causation.

    it's not. he's just stupid.

    if it were addictive you'd see a lot more people going to the betty ford clinic for weed but you don't see that very often do you? maybe he's just stupid.

    Most companies have weed on the ban substance policy. The company I work for does random drug tests of all employees twice a month. If you test positive, you get a warning and go on probation for one year. If at any time during that year you test positive again, then you are automatically terminated.

    Yea, weed may be getting legal for recreational use, but most companies in the Untied States ban their employees from smoking it.

    Ok? Thanks for an anecdote that addresses my point in zero fashion. But thanks, nonetheless, I guess...

    The NFL will never allow the impression that players are playing high on weed to spread

    The most they may ever do is to agree to allow the salves and rubs that eliminate the THC

    But the policy has so many holes as is that even McFadden could run through(j/k)......pass one test in camp and you are good for the rest of the year.......they will continue to serve up a handful of idiots to keep up appearances
