Pot Smoking Can Trigger Mental Illness: Study

Feb 8, 2011 Full story: KGWN-TV Cheyenne 6

Advocates of medical marijuana say pot has all sorts of health benefits. Maybe so, but a new study from Australia suggests that smoking pot can drive some people crazy - or at least make them go crazy sooner than they would have if they had never picked up the pipe.

You've got to be kidding me...read the study. It states if one is more prone to mental illness then marijuana might make a persons mental illness come out earlier. so if your planning on going crazy dont smoke pot cuz it makes it come faster

Sounds like another government 'study' with a pre determined outcome! More propaganda with no credible evidence!

I have some mental issues that I was diagnosed with, at the age of 32. I never had any problems until a quack doctor put me on pills, knowing nothing about me, and they caused me to have the problems I have now. I also have some serious health problems. My point is I have smoked pot for over 30 years. I am 46 years old and trying to get into Mayo Clinic since July 2010. I am living proof that marijuana helps you mentally and physically. That is the only reason I am still alive. I was sent home 5 1/2 years ago to die but guess what it didn't work thanks to marijuana !!! It slows my mind down so I can focus on what I am doing and it calms me down instantly among everything else it helps me with physically.
