COVENTRY, England – British scientists say they’ve found a significant link between marijuana use and manic behavior. And, teenagers are especially vulnerable to the effects of pot, they say.

The research published in the Journal of Affective Disorders looked at what pot does to people who have certain behaviors.

Their study of 2,000 people found that smoking weed can precede or coincide with manic episodes, such as anger, along with aggressive or violent behavior.

Smoking pot was also associated with depression, and a reduced need to sleep resulting from hyper-activity.

They also found that some pot smokers had episodes of delusion, and sometimes they heard voices.

But, apparently there was no evidence that getting high made you crazy.

The researchers were particularly concerned with teenagers, because smoking pot during that critical stage in their development could lead to problems on down the road.
