AnswerYes. It affects the ability of the brain to function normally, especially the parts that control learning, problem solving, co-ordination and perception. You need all of these to do well in school. This is true for both short and long term effects. Marijuana use is associated with a lack of caring about performance as the use increases, and many people then drop out. It can cause you to lose neurons similar to how an aging person does, which makes remembering things more difficult. All of this is proven by research, but there are many people who can tell you that marijuana ruined their best opportunities to learn and succeed. NOOOOO DEF. NOT!!!THAT IS NOT TRUE!YOU WILL BE JUST FINE!SOME SAY THEY EVEN DO BETTER!
