Marijuana Saves Binge Drinkers’ From Brain Damage

by | 30th, August 2009

refer-beerDID you know that if you smoke enough marijuana it will protect the brain from binge drinking? Well it might. So says the science.

At the University of California San Diego, boffins examiend three groups of 16- to 19-year-olds:

A) Binge drinkers.

B) Binge drinkers who also smoke cannabis.

C) Those who neither drink nor puff, or so they tell mum and dad. The control group, otherwise known as future politicans.

The binge drinkers ‘s brains had damage to their white matter.

But those who drink and smoke showed more damage than the control group in only three of eight areas of the brain.

In seven of the areas, their brains were in better condition than the binge drinkers.

Ergo, weed is good for binge drinkers.

You can read the study in the Neurotoxicology and Teratology. But the cince is nto eprfect and Anroak is looking for any student who doesn’t binge drink, puff weed, pop pills, dabble in LSD and quite like cocaine to get in touch…
