According to research done by McGill University, smoking pot every day can permanently alter a teenager's brain. The study's results have shown that "long-term use of marijuana by a teenager decreased the compounds serotonin and norepinephrine in the brain", which in turn "sapped the subjects of motivation and the ability to handle stress while increasing depression." The study suggests the long-term effects are irreversible.

"The implications are that there should be a warning about the consumption of cannabis during adolescence because of the long-term effects in the brain devoted to the regulation of emotion."
