Cannabis Linked Again to Schizophrenia

Another Study Ties Marijuana to Schizophrenia Onset

In a new study that was published in the American Journal of Psychiatry this week (April 14, 2004) - it was again confirmed (as already confirmed in over 30 other studies) that Cannabis/Marijuana use is closely associated with early development of schizophrenia.

The research states that "New research reveals that cannabis use is strongly associated with early onset of symptoms in men with schizophrenia.

The authors say their results are significant as early onset schizophrenia carries a particularly poor prognosis.

The study examined the independent associations between gender and cannabis use and age of onset of schizophrenia."
