Matthew M. Elrod from Victoria writes to the Prince George Citizen
claiming there is no evidence that cannabis increases the rates of
psychosis. I suggest that he (and any readers of The Citizen who may
want to hear some clear evidence about marijuana induced psychosis)
listen to the recent CBC Victoria broadcast on this very subject. In
this interview Dr. Kiri Simms, an emergency room psychiatrist, gives
an eloquent account of the increasing marijuana induced psychosis that
she sees on a daily basis.

In the emergency departments of his home town. She states in this
interview that she has seen "Ten people in the last year who are very,
very ill" from marijuana induced psychosis. She also states that
whereas people used to have their marijuana induced psychosis resolve
in a few days that this is now taking weeks and sometimes it does not
resolve at all. If any one who reads this wants to hear the interview
it can be found on your computer by going to the following:
