    And if you play your cards right, we might be able to find the latest evidence that cannabis is used to self medicate sexual inadequacy.

    Hmmm....a link to an article that debunks your original claims, followed by an unsubstantiated claim intended to ridicule those who disagree with you.

    How can you expect anyone to take you seriously if you refuse to even make a cursory attempt at a valid argument?

    Well, if Dr. Large is indeed correct in his statistical meta-analysis, then this may be a step toward a causal---rather than a purely correlative---relation between the etiology of schizophrenia and cannabis use. However, it'd be premature to say that cannabis causes schizophrenia.

    As the press release says, "earlier onset of severe mental illness among substance users is a result of cannabis use," but this does not say much about schizophrenics in general. Granted, there is high comorbidity between substance abuse and schizophrenia, but we don't know the extent to which these data pools overlap (e.g., it could be the case that most schizophrenics do not smoke marijuana, but those that do, tend to develop it faster. But since so few smoke it, not many have hastened development).

    Moreover, it could be that marijuana only hastens schizophrenia when other factors are present in the diathesis-stress model, and these other factors are far more important. Also, it is important to note that this study does not say cannabis hastens schizophrenia; it only says that those who did get schizophrenia, and did smoke marijuana, tended to develop schizophrenia at an earlier age. So it could be that marijuana did not cause the disorder, it just hastened it in those who would have gotten it anyway. Because only 1% of the population gets the disorder, marijuana, at the worst, would seem to speed up the disease in some subset of that 1%, and we are unsure how much marijuana contributes to that speed up, and what percentage of schizophrenics it would affect.
