Call it what you want, but it is likely that the U.S. government will start a stronger campaign against marijuana use in this country. For years, marijuana advocates have preached that smoking pot is a benign drug, claiming that there are no true negative side-effects (and therefore should be legal). I can recall plenty of times when someone I knew would get on their soapbox about how ”smoking pot is safe compared to cigarrettes, blah, blah, blah”.
Well not anymore.
According to a recent study, it has been noted that smoking marijuana increases the chance of one becoming psychotic. Experts from the study noted that “even infrequent use could raise the risk of mental illness by 40%”.
“We’ve reached the end of the road with these kinds of studies,” said Dr. Robin Murray of King’s College, who had no role in the Lancet study. “Experts are now agreed on the connection between cannabis and psychoses. What we need now is for 14-year-olds to know it.”
So the game is over for all the pot-heads. Marijuana, like cigarrettes, is physically bad for your mind and body (especially from all that late night White Castle).
