On the relation between psychosis and marijuana
Politicians have squandered billions of tax-payers money to try and find negative effects of smoking marijuana, but have been surprisingly unsuccessful. This is rather unfortunate, because the same politicians have been surpressing the freedoms of these same tax-payers on the grounds that ‘marijuana is bad for you’. Which, apparently, it is not.
The one crumb thrown in their direction by the researchers of the world is a corelation between marijuna and psychosis. The thing the researchers aren’t sure about yet is whether marijuana is the cause for psychosis. The jury is still out on that.
The New Scientist has an interesting article that explores the various findings of scientists who went looking for the connection between marijuana and psychosis.
(Disclaimer: I have never ingested marijuana myself, but I did at one time almost get arrested for growing it. Drat, there goes my chance to become Miss Universe.)
