You don't have to admit that you've tried the new "legal" marijuana but as more people are smoking the stuff, observers notice not everyone reacts to the drug the same way.

Not sure who thought of this but there is new data showing that female rats are more sensitive to pot than male rats.  Female rats were found to react more strongly to the pain-relieving qualities of marijuana but also to be more susceptible to the drug's non- medicinal side effects.

Almost anybody associated with weed knows that marijuana today is very different than it was 40 years ago, in that it contains more of the main psychoactive component THC.

The conclusion is that users are more likely to see negative side effects today like anxiety, confusion, panic attack, hallucinations or extreme paranoia, and women are at higher risk.

Researchers say it's likely there are similar differences among male and female human users of the drug. (UPI)

Apparently they didn't test people because the rats wouldn't give back the left overs!?
