A retired teacher whose son’s death was caused by mental illness brought on by cannabis is touring schools to warn children about the drug.

Janie Hamilton lost her 36-year-old son James to testicular cancer after his drug-induced psychosis led him to refuse chemotherapy.

His death was recorded as being partly caused by schizophrenia, which his family believe was triggered by cannabis addiction.

James’s personality changed dramatically after he became hooked on the drug at 14. He was sectioned aged 20.

He later admitted to his family that he knew cannabis caused his mental illness, but could not bring himself to stop smoking it.
