High Matijuana use is indeed related to psyhotic illnesses such as schizophrenia, in people already vulnerable. There are injectable antipsychotic meds which can be used, especially i n people reluctant to take pills. If he is indeed schizophrenic, and a high dagga user, and refuses to take the recommended treatment, he is a really lousy bet to be a good companion or father. On what basis ae you hopeful that after years of being consistently a problem, he will now somehow turn good ?
