+ - Chicken or Egg? Link Between Marijuana Use and Psychosis Can Go Both Ways->

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "Like the chicken or the egg, marijuana use and psychosis can go both ways, a new study has revealed. While using marijuana has been linked to the development of psychotic symptoms in teens, new findings revealed that the reverse could also be true after a new Dutch study linked psychosis in teens to later pot use.
Scientists have previously found that psychosis is an effect of cannabis use, but some questioned whether it was marijuana that increased the risk of mental illness or whether people were using marijuana to ease their psychotic symptoms such as confusion, hallucinations, delusions and having a lack of self-awareness."
