Cannabis 'doubles mental health risk'

Filed under

"Smoking cannabis virtually doubles the risk of developing mental illnesses such as schizophrenia, researchers say. The New Zealand scientists said their study suggested this was probably due to chemical changes in the brain which resulted from smoking the drug."

"Marjorie Wallace, of the mental health charity SANE, said: "At last there is a convincing study supporting what we have been saying for many years, that there is a direct link between cannabis and psychosis."

The little voices in my head say this can't be correct. Can it Susan? No, I don't think so.

Full Story.

re: Your brain on drugs

Yeah, I like a nice unbiased study by open minded individuals! I agree with them. ... uh, what was I saying? Tongue

You talk the talk, but do you waddle the waddle?

  • Project To Digitize Every SNES Game Manual Now Complete

    Nearly two years ago, we discussed a fascinating project spearheaded by one dedicated person, going by the moniker Peebs, to digitize every video game manual’s English version for the Super Nintendo system. For those of you not of a certain age, video games used to come in the form of cartridges that you would load into the console. Those cartridges came packaged with game manuals that did everything from tell you how to play the game, up to and including game lore and backstory. Again, if you were born at the right time like yours truly, reading the manual upon buying the game, sometimes in the back of your Mom’s Plymouth Voyager minivan on the way back from Toys ‘R Us, was part of the excitement.
