Does smoking weed cause dementia?
For the past 33 years, I’ve smoked weed every day. I’m smoking while I type this. It has had NO negative consequences on my life or health. I owe my healthy lifestyle to it. In my life, I’ve only had good things happen to me. Cognitively, physically, and emotionally! So my answer is no. Cannabis can cause memory problems such as forgetfulness but not dementia.
Dementia is a set of disorders that affect individuals 65 and older and is characterized by damage of at least two cognitive processing, like memory loss and judgment. It is caused mainly by Alzheimer’s disease and loss of brain function due to a series of minor strokes (vascular dementia)
