Casual Marijuana Use Harmful to Brain Development: Harvard
From what I can see, no other scientific question brings out the banshees so much as a study that finds that use of marijuana/cannabis is detrimental. So too has been the reaction to Harvard Medical School research, published in the Journal of Neuroscience, that details permanent damage to the brain as a result of even casual use. The study is hardly unique in its findings, such as this one, for example.
Update: The Economist also examines the Harvard study.
