Well the article came from Dr. Weil's website, which reports most things superficially, but I agree that yes, even for short articles the particluar study could be easily referenced.

I tell my son about the burnout effect all the time and it fortunately has sunk in. Of course to a teen male brain I was another mother who didn't 'know anything'. Now that he is older, he is more influenced by my convictions. Of course, over 50% of ADDers self-medicate, so I'm really not surprised for his liking the drug's effects.

Maybe people in the study were more occaisonal users? I don't think it would hurt anyone to use it a few times a year, and it could be greatly benefial to those with chronic diseases and cancer. For those with serious illnesses--I am totally convinced the benefits outweight the costs in terms of side effects. Thre are side effects from conventional medications that are far worse than what you'd get from marijuana. I think cannibus is much safer than a lot of pharmaceutical drugs and shouldn't be demonized.

But for chronic recreational users, it does take away one's motivation, perhaps the burnout effect you were referring to Scott. I haven't kept in touch with any chronic/long-time cannibus users that I used to know to have to opportunity to see if that was reversed when they quit.
