Psychologist Michelle L. West, assistant professor in the department of psychiatry at University of Colorado - Anschutz Medical Campus, tells Yahoo Life that it's important to consider all sides of marijuana use. “It is important to consider benefits and downsides of marijuana use and to be open to new information,” she says. “There is a lot that we don’t know about marijuana and the way that it can impact people, especially young people.”
