Pot causing mental illness

Discussion in 'Apprentice Marijuana Consumption' started by Brumac, Sep 23, 2009.

  1. thats bullshit. All you have to do is look at people who have been smoking weed for decades and they arent retarted. Theres always people afraid of getting messed up from weed, but those people need to calm the fuck down nothing bad is gonna happen from smoking weed
  2. From what I know, Marijuana can only make people more susceptible for mental illness if they already have a predisposition to that disease.

    Looks like its by the company who are developing CBD (Cannabidiol) as a new psych drug.
    A Clinical Trial on the Antipsychotic Properties of Cannabidiol - Full Text View -

    Articles like this are placed by the drug manufacter PR dept to raise positive awareness of the new medication in development. This one looks designed to distance the product from "street drugs"
    Yes, huge amounts of IV THC will make you trip out. Duh. But it smells like pre-marketing.
    You can expect to see a lot of this as various pot based drugs are introduced and try to shed the stigma of "illicit drug which gets you high". "Oh no, its that nasty street weed that makes you go all Reefer Madness, not our super expensive new pill!"

  5. Interesting points and perspectives by all. I think that the pre-disposition comment might have the most validity in terms of correlation between schizophrenia and mental illness.
    I think if you burn all the time and become sedentary intellectually, emotionally, spiritually, and physically you are not going to be of sound mental health anyway. Add to that a predisposition to mental illness and I suppose the possiblity of accelarating that illness is more likely.
    I'm not a doctor or researcher ya know, but realism says if you are 34 and don't have mental illness yet, and you smoke weed, I would fire up a bowl and go with what you like. late
