I saw this on CBS This Morning today. I only caught part of it when it was on this morning, but I found the bit online on the CBS web site. It was a segment on research that suggests that high-potency THC could be linked to increased risk of illnesses involving psychosis. Schizophrenia being just one such possible illness. Not making any judgements about the validity of the study, but it is interesting for sure. Video at link:

Another related article. Bottom line for me - marijuana has legitimate uses when used under a doctor's care, but todays street pot is not the stuff of Woodstock - much stronger and must more possibility of causing psychological problems.
