Psychosis five times more likely for cannabis users

Marijuana is not a harmless drug.

London (AFP) – A British study released Monday suggested that the risk of psychosis was five times higher for regular users of cannabis, adding to a growing body of evidence linking drug use and mental health disorders.

The six-year study published in the medical journal The Lancet reported on 780 people living in south London, 410 of whom were being treated for conditions including schizophrenia and bipolar disorder.

    Drug use is linked to mental health disorders…

    Yawn. Shorter article: people with mental health issues self-medicate with drugs more than other people.

    Seriously. There have been researchers trying to prove that marijuana is bad for you for decades. And maybe it is. But if this is the best they’ve come up with, then put it right next to tanning beds, artificial sweeteners and driving at highway speeds.
