Chronic marijuana in the teenage years does not cause depression, psychotic symptoms, asthma or any other conditions thought of associated to it, a recent study revealed. In fact the study, which spanned 20 years, concluded that there is no link between marijuana use and ill-health. Young marijuana users did not even show signs of allergies, headaches or high blood pressure later in their life.
Even the researchers were surprised with the results. “What we found was a little surprising,” Dr. Jordan Bechtold, a psychology research fellow at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, revealed in a press statement. “There were no differences in any of the mental or physical health outcomes that we measured regardless of the amount or frequency of marijuana used during adolescence,” he continued.
This latest finding, published in Psychology of Addictive Behaviors, contradicted earlier studies which reported that teenage marijuana users manifest psychotic symptoms and depression and event cancer and asthma during their later years. These earlier studies clearly had bias, due to decades of propaganda aimed to suppress marijuana and cannabis use because of conflicting business interest by strong politically active groups such as big pharma, alcohol, criminal lawyers, and police and criminal justice system employee unions.
