Youngsters at high psychosis risk from cannabis

Once again, our political leader, Kamla Persad Bissessar, is leading the conversation to a better Trinidad and Tobago.

Just about two months ago, she pointed out that “Government legalised marijuana without implementing all the necessary controls. Marijuana abuse is damaging the brains of our young people.” She then called on parents to join the lobby to have the Government increase the age limit for marijuana use and gambling from 18 years to 25 years since marijuana addiction and gambling are wrecking T&T’s youths and driving crime.

She added, “The human brain finishes developing and maturing in the mid-to-late 20s. The prefrontal cortex is one of the last parts to mature and is responsible for self-awareness, the capacity for complex planning, problem-solving, learning and memory, personality expression, decision-making, and modulation of social behaviour. #LeadersLead #UNCandProud #SecureTT
