Peter Hitchens: Was the Tate Modern attacker driven mad by drugs? Don’t you dare ask!

Mail on Sunday | 9th May 2021

Two questions arose. How had he become unhinged in the first place? Individual madness is quite rare but it is a sad fact that a growing number of children are introduced to marijuana at younger and younger ages and become permanently mentally ill as a result.

Irish psychiatrists last week reported that marijuana is the ‘gravest threat’ to the mental health of young people in that country. The College of Psychiatrists of Ireland said a combination of ever-stronger strains of the drug and a common public belief that it is harmless (the same idiocy is widespread here) has had ‘devastating effects’.

I’ll say. Hardly a day goes by without my friend Ross Grainger adding another hideous case of violence committed by supposedly peaceful dope-smokers to his ‘Attacker Smoked Cannabis’ website.
