Researchers Say Study Finding No Link Between Teen Marijuana Use And Psychosis Was In Error

NPR (1/21, Chen) reports in its “Shots” blog that a study published last August in Psychology of Addictive Behaviors “that found no connection between male teens’ marijuana use and the risk of psychotic disorders is in error, the researchers said Wednesday.” Upon reanalyzing their data, the researchers “found that the men in the study who smoked weed as youngsters were more likely to have psychotic disorders, but still were not more likely to report any health problems than nonsmokers.”
