Study: Casual pot use can damage brain
Chicago -- Smoking marijuana, even casually, can cause damage to critical parts of the brain, according to a new study published in the Journal of Neuroscience.
Researchers at Northwestern University found that those who used marijuana as little as once per week damaged parts of the brain that control emotion and motivation, and are linked to some types of mental illness.
The more frequently subjects smoked, the more damage researchers found.
