Please sent this information to your local media outlets and politicians as well.

How many more very credible studies and for how many more years do we need to suffer through before we stop the massive amount of harms caused by the proved failed drug war (prohibition)?

When will politicians that have the need to appear tough on crime to get elected, finally take the morally correct actions to reduce the drug war harms. Now you know full well for a fact more harm is caused by prohibition. I am pleading with you to face the facts and work towards stopping the massive amount of harms continually caused by prohibition (drug wars).

Schizophrenia Society of Canada postition on cannabis:

The role and impact of drugs and alcohol on schizophrenia and other mental illnesses is an area of great interest and concern. The medical consensus has been that drugs such as cannabis do not actually cause the illness, however they can contribute to psychoses and symptoms in individuals who are vulnerable to schizophrenia due to a personal or family history of the illness.

We do have some basic information about drug abuse in our reference manual Rays of Hope. The section states: "Drugs (including alcohol and street drugs) themselves do not cause schizophrenia. However, street drugs and alcohol can make psychotic symptoms worse if a person already has schizophrenia. Some drugs (amphetamines or phencyclidine/angel dust) can temporarily create schizophrenia-like symptoms in well persons."

Our Society does not have a formal position on cannabis use. We encourage all individuals with schizophrenia to talk to their psychiatrists about any products they may be taking, whether it is other prescription medications, alternative products, alcohol or street drugs. The individual's psychiatrist should know what products the person is taking in order to be aware of potential effects.

This past June, the Canadian Psychiatric Association published an issue devoted to the topic of Cannabis and Psychosis. This may be of interest if you are looking for additional information. The link is: http://ww1.cpa-apc.org:8080/Publications/Archives/CJP/2006/august/aug2006.asp

The issue of concurrent disorders -- that is the presence of both a mental illness and a substance use/abuse problem -- is a significant concern for those living with mental illness because it seriously impacts diagnosis, treatment, functioning and quality of life. If you would like additional information on concurrent disorders, please let us know.

I noted that this statement makes a subtle distinction between "street drugs" and "cannabis", that is whether someone is required to access the black market or not. It´s the business culture* that may hurt the peace of the soul, not the unique herb.
