Cannabis reduces short-term motivation to work for money

Smoking the equivalent of a single ‘spliff’ of cannabis makes people less willing to work for money while ‘high,’ finds a new study. The research is the first to reliably demonstrate the short-term effects of cannabis on motivation in humans. The researchers also tested motivation in people who were addicted to cannabis but not high during the test, and found that their motivation levels were no different to volunteers in the control group.
