'Marijuana killed my soul'

Clay Whiting deals with a lot of parents and other family members at Scripps Mercy Health hospital in San Diego, where he is an emergency room physician. In the past month, he said, he's had back-to-back ambulances carrying young people experiencing psychosis after trying marijuana for the first time.

Since the drug was legalized in California last year, Whiting said, "we see people every shift now" because of marijuana, including some experiencing violent vomiting known as hyperemesis. The incidents led to the term "scromiting," to describe people screaming and vomiting at the same time.

"Greater access means great trials by younger people," Whiting said.


Greater access is giving doctors and psychiatrists a new perspective on cannabis and psychosis, leading many to conclude there is a link between cannabis, psychosis, and schizophrenia.

The above extract is from an article in the USA Today.

It's not for everyone that's for sure, wonder out of all the billions it creates how much is spent fixing a new problem. Like the drink tax in the UK that year on year goes up to deal with thee issue.. bit of a can of worms as they say
