Ask yourself - should marijuana be legalised?

It's almost impossible to find lentils in France - they're not French enough! Everyone else will probably be eating white bread and cheese.

...and laughing at that Aussie dirtbag who can't afford 50c at the local bakery for decent bread.

I find it hard enough at the best of times to be bothered making dough let alone when dough brained. I have although been a fan of the flat bread calzone. Pre fry the salami so the outer portion of the bread gets fatted.

Why bother, no copyright on the internet. Crux can just pinch it now.

So, back off topic, what did you find outdated about the bald soprano? I"m busy avoiding writing anything intelligent on it again.

Just watched the marijuana article on catalyst from a week ago. Download available here:

Apparently a 'meta-analysis' has been carried out on a huge number of studies to determine a link between schyzophrenia and pot. It's a bloody serious study, published in The Lancet, the doyen of all med journals. That said though, there's no real new information.

The link is clear, but with some caveats. Smoking (I don't remember a dosage, maybe weekly?) will increase your risk of a schyzo episode by 40%. Note though that the base risk is about 1%. IE smoking pot will bump your risk up from about .7% (7/1000) to about 1% (10/1000). Further, a long study in Dunedin has linked your (my) tendency to psychosis from pot to a gene which can't be privately tested for at this stage, but is the linch pin in the whole system. I also have a feeling that risk of schitz decreases with age, ie your much more likely to experience it below 25 or so. But that's wild speculation on my part.

There was also some discussion on where the main risks come from and I can't remember any hard numbers. However they did mention that risk is 'greatly increased' if you start young. anything before 18 is considered young. Once the bulk of brain development is behind you the risk drops off.


They used the case of a young bloke who was smoking FULL TIME from 15 years of age. Holy crap. Surprisingly, he had a paranoid episode when he was about 17. He's given up and the episodes have stopped. Good science.

Now, at the risk of ranting like a lunatic this supports the main point on the 'harm minimisation' side of drug reform. Better information will reduce problems. If school kids knew what a bad idea it is to smoke, maybe less would smoke? Crazy really, when you think about it.

Nah.
That's the emoticon for poo and should be on the camping thread.
