yes joey but it is SCIENTIFICALLY proven and known all around the world that the side effects of a MALE smoking marijuana is shrinkage of the
testicles and lowered sperm count. Talking to a lady from the drug and alcohol services council I also found out smoking marijuana causes genetic
damage to the sperm aswell thus causing later abnormalities in sperm and thus children.
Suge, im not sure if you've taken the time to do the research YOURSELF and not from the lady at the drug and alcohol services council. Independant
research will usually give you the more unbiased results (unless the site of document is biased in the first place)
NEW STUDY FINDS POT DOESN'T LOWER TESTOSTERONE
A new study by Dr. Robert Block at the University of
Iowa disputes the commonly held notion that marijuana alters
the level of testosterone and other sex hormones.
The study contradicted a widely publicized 1974 study
by Dr. R.C. Kolodony, which reported decreased testosterone
levels in men who smoked marijuana chronically.
The U. of Iowa study found that chronic marijuana use
had no effect on testosterone, luteinizing hormone, follicle
stimulating hormone, prolactin and cortisol in men or women.
Noting that six other studies had failed to show
lowered testosterone levels in men, Dr. Block concluded: "It
appears that marijuana, even heavy use of the kind that's
typical in the United States, doesn't alter testosterone levels."
However, he cautioned that heavy use might have other
adverse effects, including "possible effects on reproductive
function and mild, selective cognitive impairments associated
with heavy, chronic use."
Block's study is published in Drug and Alcohol
Dependence, Vol. 28: 121-8 (1991).
A little research on erowid and I found plenty of documents to both applaud and denounce cannabis. The call is up to you, scratch the surface a bit
more before jumping to conclusions. Im not trying to insult you or anything but look into it a bit more. Im sure you can find an argument to counter
