In the Summer, 01 issue of MH-18 (Men's Health) Short-term: Smoking pot screws up your short-term memory, lowers your motivation and impairs your ability to concentrate.

Warning:  MH-18 only comes out once every three months. The summer issue has three different covers with totally different story headlines for the same stories. The editor, Jeff Csatari, told us that the three covers are a test and that each cover was distributed in a different part of the country, so consumers would not be confused and buy two or three by mistake. So, if you've found more than one cover of this issue displayed in your city, like we did, let Jeff know at Jeff.Csatari@Rodale.com
