Dear Donald, thank you for your response. Which by the way I agree with. Perhaps my own piece did not convey my sentiment clearly nor accurately enough. I was not proposing cannabis be banned but hash. Secondly, that indeed the relationship for causality is yet to be understood or revealed hence my reference to a generation of use needing to make itself known so that we can observe any scientific links. I am not saying hash causes schizophrenia unreservedly; I am saying that it can for those that have the biological disposition or inclination to develop schizophrenia — it can be triggered by the use of hash.
Without a doubt the kindest thing we can do right now is educate our young people.
Thank you again, best, Amelie
