A new study conducted by the
School of Social Work
at the
University of British Columbia
has found that “there was no significant difference between the health of the children living in cannabis grow operations and the comparison group of children”.

The study was initially published by the
International Journal of Drug Policy
. It’s also been published to the US national study of medicine.

Here’s the method that was used:

The study examined the household, family and individual characteristics of 181 children found living in cannabis grow operations in two regions in British Columbia, Canada. Data was collected on-site on the physical characteristics of the homes, the health characteristics of the children, and their prescription drug history. Comparison of prescription drug use was also made with a group of children from the same geographic areas.

The results:

This study found that there was no significant difference between the health of the children living in cannabis grow operations and the comparison group of children, based on their prescription history and their reported health at the time.

 

The study concludes with the following statement:

The findings of this study challenge contemporary child welfare approaches and have implications for both child protection social workers and the policymakers who develop frameworks for practice.

Cannabis prohibition removes children from their parents, which is tragic and unacceptable. The results of this study is yet another clear indication that we need to move above the propaganda, and legalize cannabis for adults, including legalized home-growing.
