Re: Mary Jane

Fiorella is one of those uptight people who opposes legalizing marijuana for the general population. She remembers a long-ago student who wrote an essay in favor of legalization, explaining that he had tried it and it didn't "affect me in the least, affect me in the least." Shortly thereafter, he dropped out of class.

And she suspected marijuana was involved with Nephew George's schizophrenia.

Now an Australian study claims that, just as tobacco is associated with cancer, marijuana seems to be associated with psychiatric problems, including schizophrenia, beyond the self-medication angle.

Fio would like to think the study justifies her stand on marijuana, but then, studies come and go. The jury may still be out on this one, but Fio has her own opinion.
