Well, Duh . . .

Captain Obvious, also known as Dr. Brian Primack, says, “Students who listen to music with the most references to marijuana are almost twice as likely to have used the drug than their peers whose musical tastes favor songs less focused on substance use,” following a study funded in part by the National Institutes of Health.

What is not yet known is the following: “Although it may be that heavy exposure to music about marijuana causes marijuana smoking, it may also be that those who smoke marijuana seek out music with lyrics related to marijuana,” Primack said. So of course there will need to be more studies, for which I’m sure the NIH will gladly pony up more cash.

Your tax dollars hard at work.
