    Default Marijuana use may increase risk of suicide, NIH study finds

    todays latest fearmongering regarding the evil weed
    https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/n...e-risk-suicide

    For example, from 2008-2009 to 2018-2019, suicide planning among men who had depression and used marijuana daily increased from 14.9% to 21.9%, and from 10.3% to 17% among men who used marijuana on a nondaily basis. Among women who had depression and used marijuana daily, suicide planning increased 14.5% to 26.8% and increased 12% to 17.5% among those who used it on a nondaily basis. There were smaller but still significant increases among those who used marijuana but did not suffer from depression.

    “While we cannot establish that cannabis use caused the increased suicidality we observed in this study, these associations warrant further research, especially given the great burden of suicide on young adults,” said Dr. Nora Volkow, NIDA director and senior author of the study. “As we better understand the relationship between cannabis use, depression, and suicidality, clinicians will be able to provide better guidance and care to patients.”

    The study did not find increases in suicide among all groups. For example, among men with depression, there was no significant increase in suicide among those who used marijuana.

    not if you cant control the dosage. you'll probably spend the time puking and being agitated.

    get some CBD gummies; with or without Delta 8 if you want that

    Daily pot user here...never once thought of committing suicide.

    Have known a few alcoholics who did, though...but zero potheads.
