Cannabis and Schizophrenia

A report on research by the University of Bristol on 26 October was headlined ‘One cannabis joint “can bring on schizophrenia”.’ We are happy to clarify that, as the article explained, the research on rats found that the active ingredient in cannabis could induce symptoms similar to schizophrenia, rather than schizophrenia itself.

Prince William

Last week we said Prince William, who is a flight lieutenant in the Royal Air Force, was hoping for promotion to captain. In fact there is no such  rank in the RAF. We meant the Prince was hoping for promotion to command a helicopter.

Sativex

In a Health article on June 19, we said the prescription drug Sativex, which is derived from cannabis, does not give patients a ‘high’ because the dose is low and comprises a controlled form of the substance. In fact, a feeling of euphoria is listed as a common side effect.

Cat Deeley

Contrary to our report last week, Cat Deeley has never been married. She would also like it known that it was not her ex-boyfriend Jack Huston who chose to end their relationship.

West Ham FC

Some early copies of the paper last weekend said West Ham FC were unbeaten in their last 18 home matches. Later editions were corrected by addition of the words ‘against Blackpool’.
