Your now is not your forever.

Australia became my home in 1996 after finishing my training as a Registered Nurse in Denmark. Before moving to the Central Coast I worked as an oncology nurse specialist. I have worked in general practice as a practice nurse since 2002 and enjoy being involved in preventative health practices, health and families. The opportunity to do a masters of Mental Health Nursing and become a credentialed mental health nurse presented itself. Having brought up 3 children of my own, I have developed a passion for working with teenagers and adolescents and this age group has become my main area of expertise. Adults, especially the elderly, and relationships (including sex-therapy) are my secondary areas of expertise.

Data from eleven studies involving more than 23,000 people was analysed to explore the association between cannabis use and depression, anxiety and suicide.

In one of the first research projects to follow cannabis users from teenagers to adulthood, the chosen studies looked at cannabis users younger than 18 years-old and then measured the development of depression in adulthood between ages 18 to 32.

Should use of cannabis in teens be strictly prohibited?

I think it all should be unlawful. To many people not dealing with reality. And medical should only be with a script and only sold over the counter.

Living in Australia and paying the exorbitant price to be here is what gives people depression
Money is the root of Depression
Not Weed

..really?
Sitting around endlessly intoxicating yourself as a form of escapism rather than dealing with your problems in puberty can lead to depression issues?
Well I'll be damned, here I was thinking thats how you make well rounded people.
What a progressive study and great use of your journalistic and marketing resources!

Old news. Some teens will smoke 50 billies in a row. Think that won't cause damage? 50 of anything will cause damage. Teenage boys who smoke weed copiously will have an increase in more than depression.

Pretty sure people are punching cones in their youth because they are already depressed. I’d look hard at this sort of research, I think it’s very difficult to imply causation in this case.

Yep. Lots of young coneheads withdraw into themselves, withdraw from socializing. I'd agree, based in my observations.
