A New Study Has Found Some Surprising Correlations Between Marijuana Use And Sperm Count

A recent study by Harvard University yielded surprising results when they looked at the correlation between marijuana use and sperm count.

According to a study performed on 622 men between the years of 2000 and 2017, marijuana usage seems to have a positive effect on men's sperm count.

Of the men, 55% had smoked marijuana at least once. Of that 55%, 44% had formerly used the drug and 11% were current users.

From there, researchers found that of the men who had smoke marijuana at least once, only 5% had clinically low sperm counts. In contrast, 12% of those who had never tried it had clinically low sperm counts.

The study also showed that cannabis users had higher testosterone levels. The result of which could end in higher sperm counts or more more reckless behavior.

According to Dr. Feiby Nassan, one of the authors of the study:

"An equally plausible interpretation is that our findings could reflect the fact that men with higher testosterone levels are more likely to engage in risk-seeking behaviours, including smoking marijuana."

Other studies have found that sperm quality drops with marijuana usage.

Experts are warning men to be wary of this discovery until more studies are done.

People aren't sure what to make of this information.

Others have some anecdotal evidence to support the study's findings.

Some people are pretty excited by the news.

Yet another potential reason to legalize marijuana.

There's a huge difference between a nice guy and a "nice guy." Actual nice guys treat women with respect simply because they're human beings and all humans should be treated with respect unless they prove themselves to be terrible people. The "Nice Guy" is a whole other monster. "Nice guy" always has an ulterior motive. "Nice guy" isn't nice to women because they're human, he's nice because he wants something in return - and he often flips out in scary ways when he doesn't get it.
