This sounds like the exact same meta-study that generated all the scare-headlines in the UK last year. The "policy experts" read conclusions that are not in the meta-study. For example:

- "teen users 40 percent more likely to have mental illness" is complete falsehood. The meta-study actually suggests that teens with pre-existing depression or other mental illnesses use cannabis 40% more than their peers. The same can be said for aspirin and migraine headaches, but no one would be stupid enough to suggest aspirin causes migraines.
