No. Otherwise it wouldn't be a treatment for things like brain cancer, Memory disabilities and seizures.

The us government has a patent on marijuana as a "brain protectant".

The rumor that marijuana damages the brain came from a study done on monkeys in the mid 70's in which they put gas masks on 3 monkeys and proceeded to fill each mask with large amounts of marijuana smoke.

The masks were left on the monkeys until all of the smoke was gone. The scientists found that the monkeys had lost brain cells. However, what the scientists back then didn't realize is that it was the lack of oxygen caused by the monkeys inhaling only smoke with no breathing breaks for so long that killed their brain cells.
