Define brain damage: Marijuana use can lead to addiction and dependance and many experts consider these to be a form of "brain damage". There is strong evidence that prolonged use can lead to cognitive impairment which may be irreversible.
A 38-year-old female asked:
Can brain damage cause als?

Possibly: Recent research suggests that a history of multiple concussions increases the risk of als, but more research is needed. Fortunately, the vast majority of those with concussions will never get als. The cause of ALS is largely unknown; genetic factors play a role in some cases. Lyme disease may cause symptoms very similar to ALS ; should thus be ruled out.
