Gone to pot?

Cannabis goes to pot in young people's eyes:

ONE in three young people find cannabis use unacceptable, according to research suggesting the drug is now seen as addictive and linked to health and social problems.
A new survey by the National Drug and Alcohol Research Centre found marijuana use has become socially unfashionable, with three-quarters of the 1500 adults surveyed believing it is dangerous or very dangerous.
Nearly half believed cannabis can cause schizophrenia, depression and anxiety disorder to a moderate or large degree.

A quick visit to Nimbin to repeat the survey failed because those surveyed were depressed, anxious or just plain stoned.
