Stoned stupid?

Stoned stupid?

A new report challenges a study suggesting that regular marijuana smoking during the teen years can lead to a long-term drop in IQ. The author of the new paper says pot might not have anything to do with the mental decline seen in the original study, and that other factors may be to blame.

That's absolutely right. Because if you want to know why your IQ has plummeted, look not at what's in the baggie in your sock drawer, but what's playing on your TV.

Nausea 1.0: A new suite of apps can help you decide whether you've got the flu.

Here's how they work: If reading them on your iPhone screen makes the room spin in circles, you've probably got the flu.

Not your Grandpa's Dart: Although it was praised by automotive journalists, the new Alfa Romeo version of the Dodge Dart hasn't been a hit with American car buyers.
