Last week, during CNN's GOP town hall, Jeb Bush made the outrageous claim that marijuana causes brain damage, despite the fact that there is now extensive evidence showing that it has very little if any negative effect on the brain.
During the town hall appearance, Bush spoke against legalization, and "the devastating nature of marijuana." He went on to speak about the "impacts it has on productivity … and brain damage."
"The potency of this generation's marijuana … it has serious neurological impacts, and yet it's laughed off because culturally, that's an obsolete problem. Well, it's not," he said.
"This is not some idle conversation, this is a serious problem. Addiction in general is a huge problem for our country," he added.
