Interesting study on the come out of heavy pot smoking:

Among all cannabis users, including sporadic experimenters and habitual users, the lifetime risk of psychotic illness increased by 40 percent, the report said.

"It's not as if you smoke a joint and you're going to go crazy," said Richard Rawson, who directs the Integrated Substance Abuse Program at UCLA and was not involved in the study.

In the past, I've indirectly worked with some long-term pot smokers and this study confirms some of my experiences. Besides psychosis, there are definite minor effects I've seen: short-term memory loss, long-term memory loss, paranoia, and bi-polar disease. What have you seen?
