Smoking high-strength cannabis may damage nerve fibres in brain
Study suggests high levels of skunk use may affect the brain’s white matter, making communication between the right and left hemispheres less efficient

High-strength cannabis may damage nerve fibres that handle the flow of messages across the two halves of the brain, scientists claim. Brain scans of people who regularly smoked strong skunk-like cannabis revealed subtle differences in the white matter that connects the left and right hemispheres and carries signals from one side of the brain to the other.

The changes were not seen in those who never used cannabis or smoked only the less potent forms of the drug, the researchers found.
...

The scans found that daily users of high-potency cannabis had a slightly greater – by about 2% – “mean diffusivity” in the corpus callosum. “That reflects a problem in the white matter that ultimately makes it less efficient,” Dazzan told the Guardian. “We don’t know exactly what it means for the person, but it suggests there is less efficient transfer of information.”

There were only two options for gender. At last count there are at least 12, according to libs. By that standard, I'm a male lesbian.

he was available for comment, he just couldn't efficiently transfer the information from his brain to his mouth.
