Default Does marijuana cause schizophrenia?

Our teacher told us that. Looking for a concrete yes or no because I see some people say yes and some no.

Marijuana's effects differ between the person. I had one friend who, despite how many times he tried it, would always become paranoid.

Experimentation goes a long way.

Screw what the text says and try it yourself.

Jammer pot is very dangerous, it can kill you, it can kill others around you without them having to smoke it!! A single marijuana cigarette can cause a perfectly normal young man with high intelligence to act in a way he otherwise wouldn't.. symptoms include but not limited to; agression, violence, extreme violence, sexual aggression, sexual violence, suicide, attempted suicide, and many more

please stick to legal substances such as Alcohol and or Tobacco as these are much safer and have proven to not have many health effects

There are also many productive and legal prescription pills that can help with most things pot advocates claim pot can help with, and the good thing about pills is that they are addictive so you'll never forget to take them and will always be healthy!!

No, but it does alter your brain chemistry and you should avoid it until you're at least 25 when your brain is fully developed...

Or you could be like a normal person and smoke/drink excessively in college and have the time of your life.

Let your brain finish developing first. It won't kill you or turn you into a psychopath.

Cannabis is a drug and terrible for your body, specially if you are young.

I hate when people act like it's a great thing. I understand the arguments for legalization, but let's not act like it does not cause harm to a person's health.

This new study recent published by Harvard scholars says that even casual marijuana use can mess with your brain.

Probably not. It can probably trigger schizophrenia if its already a problem but I don't see why a person with schizophrenia would use a substance that alters your state of mind.

Supposedly people who smoke pot are many many more times more likely to get schizophrenia but supposedly schizophrenia rates have not gone up with a rise in marijuana usage. So really know one knows the connection but I feel pretty confident these two things have something to do with it
1-schizophrenia is heavily linked with problems during birth (usually deprived oxygen stuff) and other stressful/damaging events during early brain development. As medicine improves thats not really a common occurence so it could easily offset the marijuana usage growth
2-People just under reported usage in the past. It has a stigma attached with older generations but much less so now.
TL; DR Nobody is sure but there is certainly some sort of connection.

You want a concrete answer? No, it doesn't.

Marijuana is like booze, you do it when chilling with your bros to have a good time. Just don't expect to start seeing funny colors or some shit like that. Main thing is you will get cotton mouth and laugh more at shit.

If you wanna trip balls I'd recommend DMT and LSD
