The first in a groundbreaking series by Patrick Cockburn on the lessons of his sonís psychosis
Patrick Cockburn Author Biography

Monday 26 November 2012


Henry Cockburn was diagnosed with schizophrenia in 2002 at the age of 20. Before that he was a heavy cannabis user.

His father, Patrick Cockburn, The Independent's award-winning foreign correspondent, has long wondered whether the two were linked and spent months speaking to the world's leading experts in the field. In a four-part series prompted by his son's condition, he will examine the medical evidence linking sustained cannabis use with schizophrenia, before going on to look at the way the mentally ill have been let down by the health service and stigmatised by public opinion, and concluding on Thursday with his manifesto for a more humane and effective system Ė accompanied each day by Henry's account of his journey from pyschosis to a normal life.

President Asshole bragged about smoking pot and snorting cocaine in his autobiography. We're on a path to outlaw tobacco while legalizing marijuana. What next?

I'm glad I'm seventy four, and won't have to put up with this shit much longer.......

First of all I will premise my post by disclosing I am a former smoker. I am not anti smoking nor am I a cheerleader for smoking.

Now regarding "studies" linking this to that and other things. For years it's been claimed that smoking was a leading cause & in "fact" directly linked to Cancer. Thing is the number of smokers has substantially shrunk while the occurrences of cancer have greatly risen and many of those have never smoked. To cover for that they came up with the BS second hand smoke theory.

Don't worry m00, you will soon have the right to stay stoned perpetually, I'm sure we will see little change in your thought process.
