Marijuana Smokers Remember Nothing but a Good Time, Study Says

Marijuana Smokers Remember Nothing but a Good Time, Study Says

Pot smoking – http://cdn.thewire.com/

Parents who spend their time talking to their pot-smoking teenagers may wonder whether their child remembers any of it a day later. Thanks to a new BYU study, we now know that they at least remember the good times.

The study, published in Psychotropic Behavior and Development, shows that marijuana smokers are more likely to remember something if there is a positive emotion that accompanies it.

“People study long term and short-term memory loss in cannabis users, but we are the first ones to study how emotions influence memory,” said BYU psychology professor Ross Flom, lead author of the study.

Although the test-subjects could barely talk after intravenous injections of 100mg of pure Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), there are a number of different ways researchers developed to analyze how cannabis users responded to testing treatments, such as eye movements, elapsed time between each blinking of the eye and drooling of the mouth.

The test-subjects were set in front of a flat paneled monitor in a closed off partition and then exposed to a person on screen speaking to them with either a happy, neutral or angry voice. Immediately following the emotional exposure, they were shown a geometric shape.

Volunteers were given 100mg doses of THC intravenously which is the equivalent in potency of an ounce (28g) of marijuana

 

To test their memory, the researchers increased dosage every 5 minutes again and again during periods of two to three hours. In the follow-up test, volunteers were shown two side-by-side geometric shapes: a brand new one, and the original one from the study.

The researchers then were able to record how many times the subject looked from one image to the next and how long they spent looking at each image before any drooling of the mouth occurred. Volunteers’ memories didn’t improve if the shape had been paired with a negative voice, but they performed significantly better at remembering shapes attached to positive voices.

“We think what happens is that the positive affect heightens the marijuana smokers’ attentional system and arousal,” Flom said. “By heightening those systems, we heighten their ability to process and perhaps remember this geometric pattern.”

This study follows a string of significant research on pot smokers’ ability to understand each others’ moods, the moods of dogs, cows, monkeys, and classical music.

Media Silent as Muslims Ethnically Cleanse 60,000 Christians in Philippines

Philippines - Muslims Attack Christians

By Daniel Greenfield | FrontPage Magazine

When thousands of Muslims become refugees, then you can’t get the media to shut up about it for weeks. Thousands of Muslim migrants invading Burma became “refugees” and the media has spent the better part of a year ranting about how evil the Buddhists are.

But when Muslim terrorists attack a Christian city creating tens of thousands of refugees, you couldn’t pay the media to cover the story, whether it’s in Syria, Egypt or closer to home in the Philippines.

Philippine troops have started to battle their way into coastal villages in the south where Muslim rebels have held scores of residents hostage in a six-day standoff, sparking fierce clashes that have killed 56 people and displaced more than 60,000 Christians, officials said Saturday.

President Benigno Aquino III said more firefights were expected but assured more than 62,000 displaced villagers being sheltered at…

Three suspects from northern Israel are in custody after taking possession of two shipping containers full of fireworks, knives, swords and electroshock weapons, according to the Israel Police.

A gag order on the seizure was lifted on Thursday.

The containers were shipped from China under the guise of Christmas decorations and addressed to a resident of Beit Hanina, a largely Christian neighborhood in East Jerusalem.

Palestinian protesters in Jerusalem have made extensive use of fireworks during clashes with police in recent months. Police say that high-caliber fireworks can penetrate police protective gear at close range and cause serious burns.

The discovery of the containers and the arrest of the suspects was the culmination of a joint investigation by detectives from the police’s central district, Tax Authority officials and Ashdod port customs personnel.

The containers…
