Marijuana Use Raises Risk of Psychosis

European researchers have found that those who used marijuana during their teens and early 20’s were nearly twice (1.9x) as likely to experience psychotic symptoms when compared to those who did not use it. Continued use during the study period was associated with a doubled risk compared to nonusers, and predicted more episodes of psychosis later in life as well.

PositiveTip: Although often promoted as a harmless high, serious risks accompany the use of marijuana.
