Cannabis is responsible for 91 per cent of cases where teenagers end up being treated for drug addiction, shocking new figures reveal...The findings also back up academic research, revealed in The Mail on Sunday over the past three years, that skunk is having a serious detrimental impact on the mental health of the young. At least two studies have shown repeated use triples the risk of psychosis, with sufferers repeatedly experiencing delusional thoughts. Some victims end up taking their own lives.

Actual drug addiction or simply being taken to a clinic??
Pot isn’t addictive.
But but. The hippies and Hollywood and media have all told us since The Sixties . . . .
Yes. There’s also a mention in the article of a “sharp increase in cocaine use” in teens.
Don’t confuse the argument with your facts. We can easily solve the problem by making it illegal for minors to have pot. Oh wait, it’s already illegal for minors? Okay then let’s make it illegal for everybody to have pot. That’ll fix the problem for sure.
Users who buy small quantities get pretty anxious about finding a dealer before the weekend. ;-)
Try to tell people that MJ causes some form of psychosis whether mild or strong, and they will argue with you ‘till the cows come home. But the fact is, irrational fear is one of the common first immediate effects of smoking MJ.
They got that mighty skunk ganga across the pond.
It’ll make ya crazy and suicidal!
Neither should be illegal.
Pot isnt addictive.
Neither is cyanide.
There’s a strong libertarian presence on this site, which favors marijuana legalization.
As we moved to legalize recreational drug use, I’ve noticed that nobody wants to talk about whether marijuana is harmful in any way, or whether it is a gateway drug.
It seems as if the debate has shifted, and we are told that since alcohol is legal and cigarettes are legal, then .
marijuana also should be legal.
I’m not saying that I’m either in favor of or against marijuana legalization. I’m just observing how the debate and discussion of the issue has evolved.
If toking some bud turns one psychotic, they were pretty close to the edge already.
Those who end up in psychosis were likely headed there anyway.
10’s of millions have smoked pot and not ended up there. Perhaps 100’s of millions.
If it wasn’t going to be pot, another substance or event would have triggered it. Extreme stress, whiskey, opioids, benzodiazepines, LSD, Ecstacy, crank.
That said, kids today should not do what we adults did as teens. The evidence is in that kids should not smoke pot.
The democrat party wants potheads as they are easy to control as they cannot hold down good jobs and will need gov’t assistance.
IMHO, I think pot’s like liquor.
These substances bring out the cray-cray that’s already alive and well somewhere down in the mental paw paw patch...!
Someone needs to go and arrest God. How dare him! /s
not physically but it does screw up drive, goal and motivation in some and for an undeveloped brain that aint good
Watching candles drip...
