In our current TrumpEra of supposedly-fake news and also seriously-fake news, it's difficult to get correct information regarding what science now knows about marijuana. On this site we're going to do our best to keep you up to date on serious research that you can rely on.
Here's one such input - an entire edition of a leading neuropsychopharmacology journal dedicated to new studies of exactly how cannabis impacts the brain and body:

For more general science/government discussions of the reality of grass impact in our society, here are several CNN short videos on medical and legal issues currently in the news?

SENIORS AND POT - NEW SURVEY: In a study sponsored by AARP, four out five of poll respondents between the ages of 50 and 80 said they support allowing medical marijuana if it’s recommended by a physician. And forty percent support allowing marijuana use for any reason. Two-thirds say the government should do more to study the drug’s health effects, according to the new findings from the National Poll on Healthy Aging. And more than two-thirds of those polled said they thought that marijuana can ease pain.
PSYCHIATRIC REPORT: Also, here's some reporting on whether smoking real-strong grass can lead to schizophrenia - the new report says it won't. There has been no spike in schizophrenia in states where people re smoking a lot of pot. However, when people first use grass, and are feeling anxious or paranoid about being caught or going crazy, they can experience an augmentation of their existing emotion - that's what grass sometimes does, it amplifies an existing emotion. One of our intentions with the MindfullyHigh App is to provide guidance so that this anxiety-boost effect doesn't happen. And indeed, it's rare in any case when you actively consider set and setting, and prepare a bit for the experience.
Cannabis & Opioid Addiction: Here's new reporting on how states that have legalized marijuana are demonstrating reduced opioid addiction statistics compared with states with strict anti-pot laws:
