UNLESS we reach an understanding about the true nature of cannabis we will
continue to produce youths who, unable to deal with their paranoia, fail to
access the drug's benefits, turning instead to other less holistic
substances, which may cause them to develop antisocial tendencies. In nearly
40 years I have never encountered anyone with serious antisocial tendencies
who was a cannabis smoker, except where such tendencies preceded the use of
cannabis. It is the lies told about cannabis that are responsible for the
rise in disturbed mental behaviour, not the drug itself.
