Title: Young adults dependent on marijuana and alcohol less likely to achieve life goals, study finds

New research presented today at APHA's 2017 Annual Meeting and Expo examined the effect of marijuana use and dependence on life achievement in young adults. The study found that young adults dependent on marijuana and alcohol were less likely to achieve adult life goals, defined by the study as educational achievement, full-time employment, marriage and social economic potential.

Researchers with UConn Health examined data from the Collaborative Study on the Genetics of Alcoholism, supported by the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism. Study subjects included 1,165 young adults, whose habits were first assessed at age 12 and then at two-year intervals until they were between 25 and 34 years old.

The study found that, overall, individuals who were dependent on both marijuana and alcohol showed lower levels of educational achievement, were less likely to be employed full time, were less likely to get married and had lower social economic potential.

Research also revealed that dependence may have a more severe effect on young men. Dependent young men saw less achievement across all four measurements, while dependent women were less likely to obtain a college degree and had lower social economic potential, but their likelihood of obtaining full-time employment or marrying was not significantly affected.

"This study found that chronic marijuana use in adolescence was negatively associated with achieving important developmental milestones in young adulthood. Awareness of marijuana's potential deleterious effects will be important moving forward given the current move in the U.S. toward marijuana legalization for recreational/medicinal use," said study author Elizabeth Harari, MD. Harari's research was supported by Victor Hesselbrock, PhD, and Grace Chan, PhD.

Ya think????

What was your first clue?

In the entire history of the world,the only nations that had to build walls to keep their own citizens from leaving were those with leftist governments.

Major Obvious started to get aware that pot smoking was evil back when he didn't make his next rank in the airy forces.

I was thinking that the adjective "dependent" was a dead giveaway to anyone.

Not so …

I had 11 rank promotions with 10 pay grade changes in 24 years. If you count the 2 ranks in Officer Candidate School with no pay grade change, then it was 13 promotions in 24 years.

I averaged one promotion just under every 2 years. That was a feat I was well satisfied with and considered it an outstanding accomplishment.

Do you know anyone else who has ever accomplished that?

Furthermore, I never knew anyone who smoked pot while I was in the Air Force. And, I have never known anyone who smoked pot after I retired. I became aware of the evil of pot smoking through the Internet and the media.

I've never known anyone to boast about their service, as you have, no.

Nor have I've ever known anybody as gullible about your fellow man, and human vices, as you.

You've claimed to have served in the far east, -- how in hell you missed all the troops smoking weed, is simply incredibly laughable..

Carry on 'major'.--- You're postings are great fun...

It's entirely possible for a Air Force officer to not have a clue about what is going on amongst the rank and file enlisted. Unlike other branches of the services,most USAF officers don't really have troop command positions. A Major or LTC might only have 4 or 5 enlisted men under his direct supervision.

While I was enlisted working my way up to E-6, no one smoked marijuana and the word was not even mentioned or little known at the time. My earlier enlisted time was spent as a crew chief on an early warning radar site supervising 22 personnel. Our big thing was to stop by the enlisted club after shift and down a few beers.

As an officer, I did not supervise any personnel and had no direct association any enlisted personnel. I don’t doubt there were troops smoking marijuana while I was stationed in Thailand. I just was never present with any if they did and no one ever mentioned having done it in my presence. I can pretty much say that none of the officers I associated with or crewed with used marijuana. If they did, they kept it very well hidden.

Therefore, my statement still stands: “I never knew anyone who smoked pot while I was in the Air Force. And, I have never known anyone who smoked pot after I retired. I became aware of the evil of pot smoking through the Internet and the media.

I really don’t give a shit whether you, t-panties, believe it or not….and I have no reason to say I “didn’t” if I “did.”

T-panties you are just as fucked up as always, even when you said I have you on bozo while I did not. I simply choose to ignore you for a couple of reasons. One, and the main one, is that it really pisses you off when you can’t engage with me.

So, I have honored your with two posts this evening. Enjoy those and plant them firmly in your memory bank because that is all I am going to give you for a long time again....starting now.

Furthermore, I don’t read your posts….I just happened to run across the one this evening.

Operation Golden Flow was a 1972, 1973 operation conducted by the US Air Force at Tapao, Thailand to drug test operatives including Special Operations Pilots and Air- Crew for drugs visa Urine samples taken at random. Anyone found to have positive results were shipped to the Philippines for Detox and on leaving rehabilitation were dis-honorably discharged.
This was also in effect at Udorn in 1971 and Ubon while I was stationed there. I knew of no one in the AC-130 Spectre Squadron that failed the test, was sent to the Philippines and was dis-honorably discharged. As an additional duty to my aircrew duty, I worked in flying training section of the squadron and it was my duty to schedule flights and make sure the crews were properly manned. Acting in that capacity, I certainly should have known had someone been shipped off to the Philippines. I am not saying no one failed the test, I am only saying I never knew of anyone who failed the test in the squadron during the year I was there and I should have.

You might want to rethink that one. Willie Nelson was in the AF in the 1950's,and was getting cigar boxes of pot mailed to him,and was smoking it on duty. I don't remember what his MOS was,but I think it was flight line,but not air crew duty.

I don’t doubt there were troops smoking marijuana while I was stationed in Thailand.

Good guess!

Therefore, my statement still stands: “I never knew anyone who smoked pot while I was in the Air Force. And, I have never known anyone who smoked pot after I retired.

And your statement is still wrong. Just because you didn't know about it doesn't mean they weren't doing it.

Which is a confession that you don't KNOW shit about the subject,yet you keep insisting on arguing with people who DO know,and telling them they are wrong.

No, I might need to restate that one.

While I was einlisted working my way up to E-6, I knew no one who smoked marijuana and the word was not even mention in the group I associated with at the time.

I did not know nor had I ever heard of Willie Nelson in the 1950’s …

Yeah,but I honestly can't think of a single one I met that I didn't like. VERY nice people who mean well,and who go out of their way to be helpful.

Only time I ever had any trouble at all with the AF was when I got on one of their hops one time carrying a loaded submachine gun and my web gear with ammo and grenade pouches,and K-Bar. Even then it was the enlisted Flight Chief that tried to tell me I couldn't board with the weapons and would have to give them to him. I told him to go piss up a rope unless he felt froggy enough to take them from me,and that pretty much ended THAT discussion. In his defense and mine,it was a standard "hop" that ran daily flights to designated airfields,and not the Blackbird flights I was used to flying. There may have been something you could load on a Blackbird C-130 that would draw questions,but I can't think of anything for the life of me.

ROFLMAO!

ONLY a career "stick up his ass" officer could possibly dream up a title like that.

Unless maybe it was someone making fun of those cretins by slipping a hilarious title like that past them to prove they were freaking idiots.

Almost sounds like they were sitting around worshiping a bowl of piss,doesn't it?

Are you referring to the strung-out potheads on this forum promoting their drug agenda?

And exactly how did they learn….if they learned.

Rhetorical questions….never mind.
