Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - July 24, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa Reports of Harmful Effects Heat Up Marijuana Question The Cedar Rapids Gazette: Wed., July 24, 1974    5/^ WASHINGTON (UPI) ~ Tho debate over marijuana use is heating up again. Now the arguments are less on the question of legalizing use of |Mit than on the medical impact of smoking it. The new debate has been sparked by publication of a series of studies — some of them sensational In their conclusions — suggesting marijuana use is more dangerous than evidence had previously suggested. Much of the impetus for tho spate of anti-pot publicity can be traced to hearings by the senate subcommittee on internal security on “the drug si tuation and its impact on I'. S. security." Restricted At the hearings, Chairman , Eastland (D-Miss.) made it ‘clear that while he did not favor jailing individuals for 'private use of marijuana, he' believed there was a “strong imbalance” in marijuana publicity, and he restricted I he hearings to researchers who believe pot is “a highly* dangerous drug." Some of the studies presented at the Eastland hearings — such as claims that marijuana causes excessive chromosome damage, can lead to birth defects and that marijuana smokers are more susceptible to infectious diseases — are being challenged. They are being; variously described as “exaggerated and misleading" and, more importantly, that they might be a perversion of scientific objectivity for political purposes. Thomas Bryant, president of the independent Drug Abuse Council, contended that some of the studies “appear to have set out to support a preconceived notion." “The result has been a series of reports, some of which resemble propaganda more nearly than scientific research," said Bryant. As one example, Bryant ci'ed research done by Dr. Robert Heath of Tulane university. Heath said his experiments with cannabis preparations in rhesus monkeys showed that heavy marijuana smoking can cause permanent brain damage. The department of Health, Education and Welfare has concluded, however, in a new annual report on marijuana research that “definitive conclusions regarding cannabis use and possible brain damage cannot be reached at this time.” Some critics of Heath’s study say it could be compared to studying the impact of alcohol by giving monkeys 240 shots of whisky a day. 2Vi acres of everything for the home ALL ITEMS SUBJECT TO PRIOR SALE Reduced $50 to $200 Off Their Replar Price Open Thursday 9 ’til 9 Hide-a-Beds, Bed Davenports and Sleep-or-Lounges Save'50 to *150 Our entire Stock of Summer Furniture NOW ON SALE Complete clearance of all remaining outdoor, porch and patio furniture . . . some pieces as much as Vt off regular price.
