Cannabis users have a fivefold risk of taking psychosis meds
Young adults who used cannabis had more than five times the risk of being prescribed antipsychotics later compared to non-users, according to a new Norwegian study.
Alcohol and drug use is more prevalent among adolescents who have been treated for mental health problems, according to new research. In particular, behavioural difficulties are a major risk factor for developing drug problems. Autism is an exception.
