    I do not see anything that prooves that marijuana results in educational underachievement. However, a few of my classmates used to do their assignments when they were high, and they had brilliant results.

    Cannabis is similar to alcohol in that it is used widely by young people, the majority of whom will suffer no longterm adverse effects from it.

    Unfortunately, cannabis use is thought to act as a trigger in young people with a genetic predisposition to certain mental health conditions, such as paranoia, psychosis or schizophrenia, of which they may not even be aware - as my son found out to his cost.
