DailyMail 7 October 2016Family First Comment: More evidence of the harmYoung teenagers who try marijuana dramatically lower their IQ and raise their risk of developing brain dysfunction, depression, and bipolar disorder, a new study claims.The younger the brain, the weaker it is as it grows and strengthens, scientists at Canada’s Western University warn.And their research shows marijuana can have a devastating affect on that development process.According to the study, published today, cannabis severely impaired teens’ visuo-spatial processing, memory, self-referential activity and reward processing.The study found that early marijuana use was also associated with lower IQ scores.And the younger they started using the drug, the worse their impairment was.Marijuana also did nothing to alleviate symptoms of depression in teens – despite claims by pro-legalization groups that this is a key benefit.In fact, in some regions of the brain, depressive symptoms worsened.READ MORE: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-3825589/How-weed-destroys-teenagers-minds-earlier-try-marijuana-lower-IQ-study-claims.html#comments
Some 41 cases have been filed against airlines, plane manufacturers, security agencies and others. NEW YORK (AP) – The dramatic final moments of United Airlines Flight 93 that were captured on a cockpit voice recorder can be played for a jury at the first trial stemming from lawsuits filed after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, a judge ruled Wednesday. U.S. District Judge Alvin K. Hellerstein ruled that jurors can’t listen to the entire tape but can hear portions that the hijacked passengers may have heard. The relevant portions include a segment in which the voices of one or two of the apparent hijackers announce they have a bomb on board. He also said jurors could hear a 4-minute-long stretch of the sounds of passengers trying to force their way into the cockpit and retake the airplane. The recording has never been publicly released, though it was played at the trial of Zacarias Moussaoui, and relatives of the victims were allowed to hear it in private. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
