Medical Daily - A new study finds people who have smoked pot more than 100 times are significantly more likely to have prediabetes when they reach middle age.

While prediabetes can progress to diabetes, the new study surprisingly does not draw a link between marijuana use and diabetes.
USA Today - (NEWSER) – Smoking pot could damage your semen quality, or so suggests a new study out of Denmark. Some 1,215 Danish men ages 18 to 28 were asked about their drug use over the past three months and provided a semen sample. The researchers found a correlation between men who smoked pot more than once weekly and "quite a lot" of a drop in sperm count: the count was an average 29% lower in these men than in those who reported lighter or no usage. Those who reported additional drug use (anything from cocaine to ecstasy) saw an even more severe reduction, with average sperm count down 55%.
