Short communication: Genetic association between schizophrenia and cannabis use


Common genetic variants underlying schizophrenia and lifetime cannabis use are partly overlapping. Individuals with a stronger genetic predisposition to schizophrenia are more likely to initiate cannabis use, use cannabis more regularly, and consume more cannabis over their lifetime

you would think having the disposition to even try pot because of the sz gene

would actually be like medicine or a deficiency of vitamins that make kids eat dirt and sand

but in fact it makes the schizophrenia full blown instead

The first time I smoked pot I knew that I wanted to do it for the rest of my life. The effects it had on me were so profound that I couldn’t imagine s day without it. I smoked from the age of 15 to 24 pretty much every day. I considered it medicine for my anxiety and depression.
I guess these studies are correct. Too little too late for me though. I’m the perfect example of what this literature is talking about. Now how do I reverse the god damned effects?
