Studies continue to pour in on the daily use of Marijuana. Here is one study that shows just that.
A new study has found no link between regular, long-term marijuana use and physical health issues, with the exception of a higher incidence of gum disease.
The new research, conducted by a team led by Arizona State University’s Madeline Meier, studied 1,037 people in New Zealand to see what effect their marijuana usage had on their health, from the time of birth until middle age, according to the Independent. The study, which was published in the journal JAMA Psychiatry, tracked the subjects’ lung function, cholesterol, weight, blood pressure, and blood sugar.
While the study did find that those who smoked pot more regularly were less likely to brush and floss daily than those who did not smoke at all, the link between pot and gum disease continued even after the researchers adjusted to control for dental hygiene habits.
