Study: Smoking pot makes you less motivated to work

Researchers have now determined that smoking pot makes you less motivated to go to work.

This study comes from University College London where they set out to see if the stereotype of potheads was real.

And as it turns out, at least part of that stereotype is true. After the researchers got their some of their subjects high, they asked them to perform one of two two tasks to earn money.

One required more effort than the other, but paid more. What they found was that the stoned subjects were significantly less likely to choose the high-effort option, opting instead for low effort and low payout.
