 Users of Cannabis Scoff at Mental Health Risks

A recent survey found that users of cannabis are of the opinion that the drug does not have any major health implications.

A recent research by the Richmond Fellowship also found that one out of five people aged between 16 and 24 have used cannabis, and nearly 75% of them believe it is a "soft drug".

According to Richmond Fellowship CEO Pamela Rutledge, there is enough research to prove the link between cannabis and mental illness in young users and the results of the survey are a cause for concern.
