Potheads with Shrunken Brains, Democrats, Etc.

Bob Enyart reports on today's peer-reviewed scientific study showing that regular pot users have shrunken brains and lower IQ, which is consistent with years of research on laboratory rats, and also, with the landmark 2012 PNAS study that showed that pot permanently lowers IQ, and the large 2014 study in Lancet showing that high schoolers are 63% less likely to graduate, have an 8-fold increased odds of using other illegal drugs, and a 7-fold increased likelihood of attempted suicide. And then there are the Democrats to report on... and Ben Carson.
