A significant difference in Ottawa research laboratories of the federal health protection branch, formerly the food and drug directorate. The studies on the special breed of "mini-pigs" should better determine how applicable the findings of the rat studies are to man, in terms of the this latest study, the intention was to determnie if there is any difference resulting from the age of "first exposure" to THC. There were two control groups and four THC groups. Each group consisted of "infant" rats and "aciult" rats. When the double dose of THC was given, the adult rats in this chronic grouo exhibited a but noticeable impairment. The young rats showed no impairment. After the experiments were completed, a crude analysis Dr. Fried suggested that if It applies to humans, then individuals are going to have to be aware that use of cannabis early in life will have an effect in determining the drug side-effects later in life. Beyond that, it becomes a personal and a size between young of the weights of decision, he added.

HUMPHRIES FUNERAL HOME Taber, in charge of rats given THC was the most "unexpected" difference uncovered by psychologists Dr. 3eter Fried ami Carol Barnes at the conclusion of a four-month-long, federally-funded study of some 120 rats. The younger rat users of THC also developed a tendency to 'carry-over" some effects of he drug during periods of abstinence, so that they developed 'tolerance" to renewed or increased doses of THC faster ban companion rats who were first exposed to THC as adults. Finally, the youthful user exhibited a greater tendency to repair what the experimenter viewed as physical damage inu on social ucnaviur da well as in terms of possible physical effects on tissues. 'The latest Carleton study is one of a scries of animal experiments directed by Dr. Fried, to determine the effects of short and long-term doses of moderately high amounts of THC on with an eye on implications for human use of cannabis. In most studies, including this latest one, the rats are given a dose of 4 milligrams of THC per kilogram of body weight. In a human, this is estimated to equal the effect of smoking eight average marijuana periods of 40 days, with the testing during the final period. The "infant" rats stalled off at 30 days of age. The "adult" rats were 10 days old at the start. A rat is considered to reach maturity at about 60 days of age. Miss Barnes gave one of the experimental groups THC during the first 40-day period, no THC during the second, and THC again during the final testing period. She noticed a difference between young and old rats. The young starters required only eight doses of THC before from the rate. Generally, there was a noticeable change in weight of most organs of rats in the THC groups compared with rats in the control groups. The changes were greater in the short-term users than the long-term user groups, suggesting the damage caused by THC was being repaired by the chronic groups at the same time as they were developing "tolerance" to the THC.
