Clark French gives his opinion on reported documented side effects of cannabis and how using cannabis allows him to ease the symptoms of his Multiple Sclerosis.
When asked by the reporter to give his feelings on the alleged link between cannabis and schizophrenia, Clark makes reference to the Keele University study which used data from 183 GP practices across Britain between 1996 and 2005 to work out whether schizophrenia is on the rise, and whether it can be linked to the increase in cannabis use since the 1970s.
Their confidential paper found that between 1996 and 2005 there had been significant reductions in the incidence and prevalence of schizophrenia. From 2000 onwards there were also significant reductions in the prevalence of psychoses.
A great start to the year for the UK cannabis campaign. It would look as though the United Kingdom is finally ready to have the conversation.
