"Adolescents and young adults who smoke marijuana have an increased risk for experiencing psychotic symptoms, according to a new study....

"Those participants who had no psychotic symptoms and had never tried marijuana when the study began and then started using marijuana had nearly double the risk of experiencing psychotic symptoms in the future.

"And those who used marijuana before start of the study and who continued use over the study period had an increased risk of persistent psychotic symptoms, the study shows."

What do you think about Marijuana Use Linked to Risk of Psychotic Symptoms? Does it change how you think about marijuana and its risks?
