  1. This study only proves that rats like morphine. Rats like cheese, too. Perhaps offspring of rats fed cheese during pregnancy show a preference for swiss over cheddar? A more accurate title of this article would be: “Offspring of Teen Marijuana Rats More Likely to Abuse Morphine, Research Suggests.”

    Another “brilliant”study which was used to perpetuate lies about marijuana:

    The Heath “Voodoo” Research methodology, as reported in Playboy: Rhesus monkeys were strapped into a chair and then strapped into gas masks and given the equivalent of 63 Colombian strength joints in “five minutes, thru the gas masks” losing no smoke. The monkeys were suffocating!

    When NORML/Playboy hired researchers to examine the reported results against the actual methodology, the laughed.

    They discovered, almost immediately, that Heath had completely (intentionally? incompetently?) omited, among other things, the carbon monoxide the monkeys inhaled during these intervals of 63 joints in five minutes…

    Carbon monoxide is a deadly gas that kills brain cells and is given off by any burning object. All researchers found the marijuana findings in Heath’s experiment to be of no value, because carbon monoxide poisoning and other factors involved were totally left out of the report.

    Three to five minutes of oxygen deprivation causes brain damage, i.e. “dead brain cells” (Red Cross Livesaving and Water Safety manual).

    The Heath Monkey study was actually a study in animal asphyxiation and carbon monoxide poisoning.

  2. You ought to be ashamed of yourself for posting something like this. The tests were done with rats for crying out loud come on. People are not that dumb anymore, your gonna have to try better than that. What a waste of cyber space. tsk tsk.

  3. This is the most asinine study I’ve ever heard of… first off, it’s probably safe to say ALL kids of teenagers are more apt to use drugs when they get older because of the immaturity and lack of parenting skills teenagers tend to have. This study is over reaching and is a total disconnect of what its conclusions suggest.
