It’s Already Started in Malta! Medical Assoc Of Malta Says…”There is no such thing as responsible cannabis use, simply a drug which produces some very short term completely artificial “highs” with very serious and long-term pains, in the form of major forms of mental illness. “

The first of many broadsides to come.. welcome to regulating cannabis Malta!

 

There is no such thing as responsible cannabis, only a drug that causes harm to people’s health, the Medical Association of Malta said.

In a statement, MAM condemned without reservation the promotion and blatant advertising of “responsible cannabis use” by government ministers who should hold the good health of our younger generation at heart.

There is no such thing as responsible cannabis use, simply a drug which produces some very short term completely artificial “highs” with very serious and long-term pains, in the form of major forms of mental illness.

With serious bans on tobacco and alcohol advertising in place, both considered “less evils”, it is completely unacceptable for any “political figure” to promote such a “scourge of modern society” known to scar the lives of many young people for life.

MAM has also provided a recent review from the international medical literature of 124 studies on the effects of cannabis on previously healthy youths free from any form of “Mental health issues”

The study concludes that

“The preponderance of the evidence suggests that frequency of cannabis use, THC (but not CBD) content, age of onset, and cumulative cannabis exposure can all contribute to these adverse outcomes in individuals without a pre-existing medical condition or psychiatric disorder. The strongest evidence for the negative effects of cannabis are for psychosis* and psychosocial functioning**.”

*(Psychosis is the condition which needs treatment with medicines and often a period of inpatient admission to a unit specialized in mental health”

**(Psychosocial functioning i.e., thinking, personality, coping style and social factors (i.e., family, relationships, employment, life events).
