Weed has been illegal for decades, and has subsequently been regarded alongside other drugs that can damage your brain and body. But as the narcotic becomes decriminalised and even legalised in some US states, a new study has found that it’s nowhere near as harmful as alcohol. The University of Colorado Boulder found that booze affects your brain’s grey and white matter, whereas marijuana doesn’t, even after years of use. Grey matter contains your mind’s cell bodies and synapses, while white matter is made of axons which connect grey matter to each other. Study author Professor Kent Hutchison said: “While marijuana may also have some negative consequences, it definitely is nowhere near the negative consequences of alcohol.” More than 850 people aged between 18 and 35, along with 439 teenagers aged between 14 to 18 were included in the research.
