    Mental problems twice as likely for cannabis users: report
    (AFP) – 4 hours ago
    THE HAGUE — Cannabis users suffer mental health problems twice as often as non-users, a study published Monday by Statistics Netherlands said.
    "The percentage of people with a less good mental health is two times higher among cannabis users than non-users," CBS said in a statement.
    The study, which was carried out between 2007 to 2009 and involved some 18,500 people, found that "20 percent of male cannabis users complained of mental problems, compared to 10 percent among non-users".
    The proportion was the same for women, with 28 percent of users complaining of mental problems, compared to 14 percent among non-users, CBS said.
    Smokers complained of mental problems such as anxiety, melancholy, sadness and impatience, but CBS said the physical health of users and non-users barely differed.
    The study found that four percent of the 15-65 year-olds who took part had smoked cannabis at least once in the last 30 days.
    Though technically illegal, the Netherlands decriminalised the consumption and possession of under five grammes (0.18 ounces) of cannabis in 1976 under an official "tolerance" policy.

    Opinions? thoughts?
    My thoughts : Correlation is not causation. End.
  2. thats like saying there are more diabetics on insulin so insulin must cause diabetes.

    This just in, medicine is more likely to be used by the sick...
  3. awe you stole my response:eek: Correlation does not equal causation. What this is, its outright propoganda and a very good example. People with mental problems seek out ways to self medicate themselves to normalcy. Cannabis is a damn good plant for helping people with all kinds of issues.
  4. I think its another study.

    they said its illegal there....maybe thats why they are sad,have anxiety and are impatient....the mlancholy well when ur stoned......

    I take all the shit with a grain. All I know is if you smoke to much you get too fucked up, that is why I limit my intake. If you drink too much you beat someone, become loud, puke and then pass out.

    Why dont they publish those studies.
  5. you should see how many orange juice drinkers have mental problems
  6. This ^^

    People tend to self-medicate before seeking professional help and getting a diagnosis. That's the problem with statistics. They can be manipulated to mean just about anything.
  7. Damn I should stop smoking now. :smoke:

    I don't get these studies they just put stupid one out after stupid one.
  8. "Smokers complained of mental problems such as anxiety, melancholy, sadness and impatience"

    Hmmmmmm, I come to the conclusion that.........These people are HUMAN! Seriously folks, don't these symptoms describe the feelings that almost everyone deals with at some time? Maybe weedies are just more truthful.
  9. You should check out GrannyStormCrow's list. She has plenty of links to studies about this, and I trust the info I get from her more than any other source.
  10. Does cannabis promote the growth of new brain cells?

    [SIZE=-1px]"WASHINGTON, Oct. 13 (UPI) -- Scientists said Thursday that marijuana appears to promote the development of new brain cells in rats and have anti-anxiety and anti-depressant effects, a finding that could have an impact on the national debate over medical uses of the drug."

  11. How fucking ironic...

    YOu post something about mental problems and spell cannibis.

  12. I notice they never discuss the other drugs these cannabis users have tried. Something like 90% of cannabis users have done more "hardcore" drugs. I know if I go nuts I'm not going to blame my weed. The Coke, Opium, and Psychadelic Mushrooms sure... But my weed??? Fuck that. That shit keeps me sane, keeps me from having to use the insanity plea at least...
  13. Thus the reason I don't believe in Authority for accuracy.

    Right on brother! :wave:

    Hahaha hell yeah!


    Yeah, Weed helps me de-stress.
