Smoking pot only makes you THINK you're more creative; you really aren't

So says a new study.

https://www.newscientist.com/article/24 ... hey-arent/
Research into the connection between cannabis and creativity has found no evidence that the drug boosts ingenuity. But it does make people who use it feel good, which in turn makes them perceive their ideas – and others' - as more creative.

You are confusing pot with LSD. Pot is more of a dimmer switch. It's a 3 billion dollar industry in Michigan, so it does something for the fine citizens of our state. Liquor only captures 1.9 billion in sales.

Shrooms can inspire ideas but usually users are laughing too hard to be productive. Also, micro-dosing can be very effective at helping people managing PTSD.

What are you hoping to get from using cannabis? Obviously you are curious.

I know a guy doing research on this. The population is veterans of Iraqi Freedom. The literature is pretty supportive, so his findings will likely support its use as well.

A friend in Washington prescribes microdosing regularly. Medical should be legal in Michigan soon.

Let's check with an authority on this.
Here is a statement from Mr. Ashley Roachclip, President of United Heads for Hemp.

Were we still creative in 1972?
What's gone wrong since?

The idea that pot doesn't have any long-term effects or that it makes you smarter is laughable, I've actually heard people say this lol.

Over the years I've worked with a few guys who have been lifelong pot smokers. One guy in his 50s was always zoned out and couldn't remember simple things. Another guy was so damned goofy and was just stable enough to do the job but not by much. So, I'm convinced Weed fry's your brain. Which is why I've never bothered with it not to mention the smell :x .

That said, I do believe it should be totally legal and Alcohol is as bad, if not much worse in some cases.

Since we are no longer breathing Lead, maybe we're smarter? Scratch that idea, 46% of adults voted for Trump.

What's more pathetic: harassing an old man who is paying to do a radio show or supporting a grifter like Trump?

Considering the age of a lot of the Trino cult, you may be onto something. Lead poisoning may well be a factor.
