BACKGROUND The focus of this report is on the possible role that the age of first use of marijuana may play on brain morphology and function. METHODS Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and positron emission tomography (PET) were utilized to study 57 subjects. Brain volume measures (whole brain, gray matter, white matter and lateral ventricle volumes), global cerebral blood flow (CBF) and body size were evaluated. RESULTS There are three primary findings related to age of first use of… CONTINUE READING
