Is today's super-potent pot damaging young minds? Modern growing techniques have dramatically increased THC levels, ramping up the impact on the developing teenage brain. Some experts say that teens who start smoking marijuana heavily before the age of sixteen are four times more likely to become schizophrenic than those who don't smoke it at all. This program explores scientific discoveries about marijuana and its possible link to mental illness, with commentary from outspoken cannabis critic Professor Robin Murray of the Psychosis Research Group. Viewers follow three young people as they battle psychosis, paranoia, and hallucinations, all triggered by smoking pot.
