Does the Lancet study indicate a direction of cauality? In other words, is it smoking cannabis that makes you prone to develop psychosis, or is it a predisposition to psychosis that leads you to smoke cannabis (and possibly ingest other drugs, such as alcohol) more than most people. It would be a very serious mistake to base a public policy on a correlation, no matter how strong, without a clear idea of the direction of causality.
