Among the Sindy’s reasons for no longer wanting cannabis legalised (though they’re still in favour of decriminalisation):
25,000 schizophrenics could have avoided the illness if they had not used cannabis
Anyone got any ideas about how that figure’s arrived at? How can they say with any certainty that it’s nearer 25,000 rather than nearer 12,500 or 50,000?
I’m sure there is a good reason for using that figure, but any calculation, I’d have thought, must involve an awful lot of rather speculative assumptions about schizophrenia, what causes it and what triggers its onset.
