Uhhh...."None of the medical tests currently used to detect brain damage in humans have found harm from marijuana, even from long term high dose use. An early study showed brain damage to rhesus monkeys after six months exposure to high concentrations of marijuana smoke. In a recent, more carefully conducted study, Researchers found no evidence of brain abnormality in monkeys that were forced to inhale the equivelent of four to five marijuana ciggerettes every day for a year. The claim that marijuana kills braincells is based on a speculative report dating back a quarter of a century that has never been supported by a scientific study."

Just because it impairs your motor and cognitive functions for a period of time...
It doesn't really do that either...
Nobody should criticize pot. Maybe there are some pot heads that need some criticism, but dont attack the drug itself. Cannabis is a miracle plant. It should be everywhere all the time in all forms. 4/20 will be a big celebration for me =P
