Recent research conducted by Harvard University has shown that smoking marijuana affects the teen brain differently than it affects the brains of adults age 25 or older. This is because your brain continues to develop into your mid-twenties. Teens who are frequent marijuana users are shown to have a deficit of about 8 IQ points compared to their non-smoking peers. This is a lot considering an average IQ is 100 points. Regular teen marijuana users have also shown decreased abilities to think, plan, and make decisions. Motivation has also been shown to be severely affected.
