With marijuana now legalized in Canada, a mental health charity has predicted a significant increase in cannabis-induced psychosis.

The latest figures provided by the Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI) reveal a steady rise in cases in recent years.

According to the numbers, 373 people were discharged from hospitals across the country – excluding Ontario and Quebec – after receiving treatment for cannabis-induced psychosis in the 2012/13 fiscal year. That number increased to 723 cases in 2016/17.
