Folmer believes communication and education…

Cannabis consumers show greater susceptibility to false memories — ScienceDaily.

There could be something to this.  I am aware of false temporal awareness in memories whereby people think something happened a week ago, when it was 3 months ago, for example.  But, if this effect on one’s memory is common, it certainly isn’t remarkably so, nor it is disabling– a bit of a nuisance, perhaps.  But, it is noteworthy and one should be aware of this potential.  The good news is, anecdotally, that these effects fade with abstinence.
