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.

Well, it is true that addiction to heroin and legal opiate painkillers is a serious problem, but physical addiction to marijuana is not even a real condition.
Jeb Bush’s run for the White House has been a humiliating experience for him, and after losing the South Carolina primary this weekend, he has decided to drop out of the race. It was reported that Jeb spent over $150 million on his short campaign, and although he was one of the early favorites, he was unable to outshine the stigma that his brother George has associated with the Bush name.
Jeb’s most famous embarrassing moment of the campaign was when he had to tell an audience to “please clap” during a moment of awkward silence.
