So says a study by the British government. Smoking just 1 joint as a teenager increases the risk of schizophrenia later in life by 40%.
I’ve known several people who have smoked pot. And I’ve seen a small percentage develop what I would call “minor disorders” that would express themselves after getting high. I’ve known some people that have been heavy users since they were teens who have developed a case of paranoia. But I’ve also known these users have taken other drugs as well, so the paranoia could be a side effect of the other drugs.
I would like to see the specifics of this study and see if the participants are just marijuana users or users of other drug platforms.
