Teens and young adults who are hooked to cannabis is at risk of developing psychosis says this BBC News report.
Although the Greens plan to decriminalise adult usage how will it prevent young adults or children in using the substance?
How much the pro-cannabis lobbyists in New Zealand push for the decriminalisation I am convinced that it will lead to more harm. I know of a 16-year-old teen here who had developed a mental disorder because the mother smoked cannabis while pregnant and while the child was growing. Decriminalisation may lead to more unfortunate consequences like this.
