Cannabis raises risk of psychosis

Frequent cannabis use during adolescence and young adulthood raises the risk of psychotic symptoms later in life, research suggests.

The risk was much higher in young people who were already genetically vulnerable to developing psychosis.

...After adjusting for factors such as social and economic status and use of other drugs, tobacco, and alcohol, the researchers found cannabis use moderately increased the risk of psychotic symptoms.

This is a subject that I feel is very important to stress on - please click on the title of this post to read the whole story and learn about the evils and the destruction of a society that comes from tolereance toward marijuana.

tolerance toward marijuana is exactly like being tolerant toward Islamic fundamentalism.

Also, please look at the two michael savage clips below - both are on the subject of marijuana.

I find it disgusting that you compare marijuana to radical fundamental Islam.

Radical Islamists kill people indiscriminately. Marijuana doesn't kill anyone.

I'm not going to try to sway your opinion, as you are obviously a set-in-your-ways die-hard Christian. However, I suggest you take another look at the benefits of this plant (which God placed on this earth, by the way!) for all of human kind.
I'm not talking about teenagers eating all your pop-tarts and running up the electric bill playing video games. I'm talking about legitimate medical benefits from pain & nausea relief to slowing cancer growth as well as industrial benefits such as hemp for all manner of textiles, rope and healthier food products.
Never mind the immediate reduction in prison population, resulting in a lower burden on the taxpayers and the ability to put REAL criminals behind bars.

I have no doubt that this is true. Many people struggle mentally and emotionally with marijuana. I have heard various names for pot related panic attacks - what we used to call "the fear". I believe that 'burnouts' suffer a combination of depression and anxiety.

Maybe that explains Michael Savage? Of course I bet he didn't smoke it without PCP...

42.4% of the American public has tried marijuana at least once, with 15-20 million (very conservative estimate)using it regularly.

Yet 1.3% of the population suffers from schizophrenia. Getting marijuana out of the criminal market and into a taxed and regulated market with controls for age would be a much better reaction than to through reefer-madness 2.0
