Science Apparently Uncovers Link Between Sleeplessness and Weed

marijuana-under-18Ironically for some pot-smokers, “Insomnia” doesn’t just refer to the company you order from when you need to eat a baker’s dozen of cookies before passing out. Penn researchers have recently discovered that those who embark upon a relationship with weed before the age of fifteen may have difficulties sleeping later in life. The study, which was published in a thrilling new edition of the journal Sleep, examines participants who have reported struggling to fall asleep, difficulty maintaining sleep, experiencing non-restorative sleep and feeling sleepy during the day. 

But do you know what people often do when they can’t lure the scornful temptress of slumber? Smoke. Ah, yes–a self-perpetuating cycle. It’s hard to say what to do when faced with a situation like this, but perhaps the best solution for insomnia-plagued child stoners could be to pass on grass and hunker down with a couple of cookies and a fresh copy of Sleep instead. Or not.
