New study suggests minimal relationship between cannabis and schizophrenia or psychosis
October 22, 2009

Last year the UK government reclassified cannabis from a class C to a class B drug, partly out of concerns that cannabis, especially the more potent varieties, may increase the risk of schizophrenia in young people. But the evidence for the relationship between cannabis and schizophrenia or psychosis remains controversial. A new study has determined that it may be necessary to stop thousands of cannabis users in order to prevent a single case of schizophrenia.

The more research they do, the more evidence Ohio State University scientists find that specific elements of marijuana can be good for the aging brain by reducing inflammation there and possibly even stimulating the formation of new brain cells.

A critical step in brain development is governed by endogenous cannabinoids, ‘the brain’s own marijuana’. Studies conducted at Swedish medical university Karolinska Institutet, with participation of scientists from Europe and the US, are now published in Science and show that these endogenous molecules regulate how certain nerve cells recognize each other and form connections. The scientists believe that their findings will significantly advance our understanding of how cannabis smoking during pregnancy may damage the fetal brain.

“That was marijuana you were smoking! It’s worse than cocaine! See those two punks over there, Marge? They were high a minute ago. Now they’re getting low. Soon they’ll be mean, ready to commit murder. Marijuana’s called the murder weed. Don’t you ever touch it again.”

From the film The Wages of Sin (1938)

Tried it and don't like it, but I wouldn't throw someone in jail for having it.

In this country you're still free to discuss anything you care to, at least for the time being. You might want to discuss it now while you still can since Amy Goodman was just pretty much prevented from discussing the Olympics in Canada. And in regard to baking marijuana, I have no idea how to do that because, quite frankly, I prefer smoking it. You do that by rolling it up much like a cigarette using cigarette rolling papers which are still available at the local quick stop stores, for now anyway. Who knows, perhaps this discussion will cause the powers that be to crack down on us all and start eliminating us one by one.

Does anyone know if discussing marijuana baking recipes would be considered illegal activity on here?? lol, it sounds silly to me because I live in Vancouver where obviously we are very free and easy with our use, but I'm not sure how this site works...
