Don't mess with drugs they f*** you up. Believe me, I'm living proof. When I was 20, weed sent my bf into a severe state of psychosis. He jumped off a multi storey car park. He's dead now.

I smoked cannabis very heavily for 17 years - along with taking a lot of other drugs - & also combined with a lot of different prescription drugs.

I enjoyed a lot of the cannabis smoking. It got to the stage that I wanted to stop the street drugs.

On balance - I'd say that psychiatric drugs have harmed me more than the street drugs.

Phil - Weed and other street drugs messed with my mind. I think though just temporarily, because I believe my illness is separate from that. My diagnosis has been recently changed to Schzioaffective Disorder, I believe is genetic.

Weed and other street drugs sent me into states of psychosis, not nice.

Hi

Sorry to hear that your having a struggle at the moment. Glad that I made you laugh.

I think that drugs are a very complex issue. There are many factors involved. I don't ever think it can be taken in isolation to other factors. Many people smoke cannabis with no ill effects.

I do agree however that if you have a severe MH difficulty; that drugs aren't going to do you many favours.

Lets have some music -

Maybe it would have happened anyway but I never ever had paranoia before I smoked weed. That is one of the symptoms I find hardest to deal with. I'd stay clear if I were you.

I have read people with mh issues generally have addictive personalities (I know I do!) and the last thing you want is to become addicted to the stuff

Yep I couldn't agree with you more Mickey, because I'm a recovered alcoholic too.
