Research Which Suggested Smoking Pot Lowers IQ Is Wrong
The study that has been challenged, consisted of 1000 people who had been born in Dunedin, New Zealand. The I.Q. levels were then tested in participants between the ages of 13-38 and were asked periodically about the use of marijuana or pot between those age limits. The researchers at different universities then concluded that the participants who had smoked pot at the age of eighteen had a comparatively lower IQ in their later ages.
