54. "Widely recognized"? Links to these many studies?
I hope that nobody here needs to experience the tragedy of schizophrenia and how once a person has it they have it for life.

I grew up with a father who paranoid schizophrenic/bi polar. He would have hallucinations, paranoid delusions, and once dreamt of killing my mother and chopping her up into little pieces. He never once smoked pot.
