Two recent articles on prisoners in Baltimore and how marijuana causes brain damage

This was supposed to be posted back on April 16, but it got lost in the shuffle. I’m releasing it now without edits.


I’ve posted a lot in the last two days, so I’ll just link to these articles with minimal comments.

Jeffrey Tobin posted this about prisoners at a Baltimore McDonalds on The New Yorker’s website today. He discusses how prison is a ubiquitous experience in certain parts of America.

This article from NBC news reports that even casual use of marijuana causes brain damage. The news is more grim for heavy users (those that use 3x a week or more).
