Mental health researchers from the United Kingdom say they have found evidence that shows a ‘significant link’ between marijuana and mania.

In a paper published in the Journal of Affective Disorders, researchers say cannabis use can negatively affect your mental health.

The researchers concluded that cannabis use preceded the onset of mania symptoms.

Those symptoms include anger, aggression, feeling delusional and hearing voices.

The study also says that cannabis use significantly worsened mania symptoms in people who had previously been diagnosed with bipolar disorder.
