Should Teens Smoke Marijuana?

Teens who smoke pot appear to have poor memory and cognitive function; but 72 hours after they stop, their memory performance returns to average range.

So Marijuana seems to be bad for teens’ memory function, but it is unlikely to cause long-term damage. 

I favor not using it as we still don’t know the full extent of who may be more susceptible to long term consequences.
