      A 2013 research study showed PERMANENT brain damage to developing minds when pot is used during adolescence..

      The study, which was recently published in Neuropsychopharmacology, had scientists examining cortical oscillations – patterns of the brain’s neuron activity – in mice. These oscillations become abnormal when schizophrenia or other psychiatric disorders are present.

      Researchers exposed young mice to low doses of tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), which is the active ingredient present in marijuana, for 20 days. Then the mice were returned to their family to continue developing.

      When the mice became adults, the scientists discovered that their cortical oscillations were severely modified, and the mice showed signs of impaired cognitive functions.

      Sylvina Mullins Raver from the University of Maryland says: “The striking finding is that, even though the mice were exposed to very low drug doses, and only for a brief period during adolescence, their brain abnormalities persisted into adulthood.”

      I am sorry ashley i must agree with william you are an idiot if you think weed is not an issue it is. Thanks to another commentator you have proof that it is and you go ahead and start a petition see how far you get lol. Are you even legal since we are on tje issues of legality

    Okay, “weed” is not the problem. The state of MS says it is a drug. Drug dealing is against the law? So, I suggest to ashley that you start a petition/contact your gov representatives etc and get “weed” legalized in MS. And I surely agree that “weed” is not the problem. Crooked politicians/wall street/people with already millions of dollars are the problem. They have no idea what REAL AMERICA is all about.

    Ashley, sorry but u are an idiot and it’s more than likely that you smoke weed or someone you associate with. How is it OK for people to walk around looking half dead because they’re high. After they can no longer get their high off of weed they will move to another drug. What about the people who get theit homes broken into and get their things stolen just so they can gather money to buy weed. Use your head for more than anti law enforcement. If all law enforcement and laws were taken away, you wouldn’t live a week.

    I lived in these apts temporarily when I first moved to Southaven. 8 murders in Southaven that year and FIVE were in my apartment complex. Was a terrible place to live and I rode my lease out a day at a time. It’s not surprising or alarming to me that they targeted this complex-only surprising that it didn’t happen sooner, given the high concentration on criminals in such a small area!

    Ashley is not the idiot. The idiots are running the city. Get your heads out of the sand and grow some! Once again all of you past judgment without knowing the facts. In young children ANYTHING affects the brain so don’t pin point weed! I do not condone weed & children. Blame the children’s parents if you know of children smoking weed.
    There is NO proof that weed leads to harder drugs and I don’t think it does either. Weed like anything can be abused. THAT depends on the person, not the drug of choice.
    Lastly, Kudos to the Southaven Police!! Take heed Memphis. You could learn from them!

    WHO SAID IT WAS JUST WEED DRUG ARREST? WORK IN OUR LINE OF WORK AND LEARN THAT WITH ALL THE HARD DRUGS WITH BUYS SALES AND USERS, WEED IS ALWAYS PRESENT TOO. IF A DRUG DEALER OR PUSHER IS GOING TO OFFER DRUGS TO YOUR CHILD TO GET THEM STARTED ON DRUGS, 99% OF THE TIME THEY ARE GOING TO START THEM OFF WITH WEED.
