In the largest research of its kind from Oxford University and McGill University, adults could be saved from mental health disorders by avoiding smoking pot as a teenager. Smoking pot in your teen years raises the risk of depression and suicide.

Or...depressed and suicidal teens just happened to turn to pot to chill out.

There is nothing wrong with the weeds. I am sure these kids were drinking too...

You’re going to ignore the experts who did the research and the science? Why?

Because scientists are often bias or ignore some info. I know a lot of kids who were potheads in high school and only a few of them are crazy depressed adults. Some are though...actually they were crazy depressed teenagers too. The drama queens.

So you believe that your anecdotal evidence, at one school, is better than teams of researchers and scientists from two major universities from two different nations? Are you high right now?

I like to be able to use my own experience... Scientific research is often biased... They start with a goal and go to great lengths to reach that goal. Refer to global warming or political intelligence.

Well if we’re only going by personal experience, I’ve known plenty of stoners and they’re not very happy people.

There’s even one stoner here that says she gets homicidal if she isn’t high.

You know some crazy people then. It is sad that they can’t take responsibility for themselves and have to pass the blame onto drugs.

That’s the whole point of the study. It explains why stoners could be insane.

I can see that, but this is just one aspect. It ignores the benefits of cannabis for some individuals. I wouldn’t recommend it in the developing brain.

It's a better method of consuming nicotine I can say it's safer but it's better...
