Please respond soon -' With any advice and information you j jmay have on the effects of prolonged marijuana use. LOST IN A CLOUD OF SMOKE , DEAR LOST: Your brother and your sweetheart are working from an old script. These are the facts: The American Bar Association has reversed its stand on decriminalization of marijuana, because it is a far more powerful drug today than it was in the '60s when flower children were mellowing out and "expanding their minds." The August issue of the ABA's Law and National Security Intelligence Report had this to say: "Long-term use of marijuana can damage the immune system and ,: 'affect the genetic structure of new cells. It can produce memory loss, interfere with body coordination, impair speech and vision, and cause a dramatic change in mood. It can also do serious damage to the respiratory system. ' "Researchers estimate that smoking three to five joints a week has the same carcinogenic effect as smoking 16 tobacco cigarettes a day, seven .days a week. Marijuana also affects the heart, raising the blood pressure SUPER SUNDAY GETAWAY a 2 NIGHTS. 2 BREAKFASTS. 1 GOURMET DINNER. 99.00 PER PERSONDOUBLE OCCUPANCY MID WEEK GOLF GETAWAY 2 NIGHTS, 2 BREAKFASTS. 1 GOURMET DINNER. 18 HOLES CF GOLF 125.00 PER PERSONDOUBLE OCCUPANCY Stretch your weekend and beat the traffic!

ANN LANDERS and heart rate as much as 50 per cent after only one joint." In a series called "Pot, Inc.," Paul Weingarten and James Coates of the Chicago Tribune reported that a potent and expensive form of marijuana called sinsemilla is up to 18 times more powerful than the marijuana of the '60s. It is being grown in clandestine greenhouses, on farms and in attics and basements. The potency of pot today is staggering. One veteran San Francisco smoker said, "We used to take a few tokes and everybody would giggle and roll around on the floor. Now you take a toke or two and you're completely blasted." In one study of 1,023 patients admitted to a Maryland trauma centre after serious car and motorcycle accidents, nearly 35 per cent had significant levels of THC, the active ingredient in pot, indicating recent use. The debate is much more heavily weighted against the use of pot than it once was. Why? Because we now know pot is not the harmless, recreational, fun thing we thought it was 25 years ago. I take no small amount of personal satisfaction in this verdict. I took a lot of heat for speaking out against pot in the late '60s on the ground that we didn't know enough about the long-term effects. It turns out that I was right.
