Swiss psychiatrists beliefs and attitudes about cannabis risks in psychiatric patients: ideologically determined or evidence-based?
Community Mental Health Journal
The objective of this survey was to assess the beliefs of Swiss psychiatrists about the risks associated with cannabis, and to assess their prohibitive attitudes toward their patients. Eighty-two doctors agreed to fill-up the questionnaire. Cluster analysis retained a 3-cluster solution. Cluster 1: "Prohibitionists" believed that cannabis could induce and trigger all forms of psychiatric disorder, and showed a highly prohibitive attitude. Cluster 2: "Causalists" believed that schizophrenia, but not other psychiatric disorders, could be induced and triggered. Cluster 3: "Prudent liberals" did not believe that psychiatric disorders could be induced by cannabis, and were generally less prohibitive.
