I have to quit marijuana, at only 22 because schizophrenia and marijuana restrict blood flow to the brain!

I have been smoking marijuana for 5 years now, about one joint everyday, and I also have just recovered from psychosis. I am 22 years old and couple of weeks ago I was shown a picture of brain by my psychiatrist, occupational therapist and addiction specialist which shows that both marijuana and schizophrenia restrict blood to the brain to a huge extent, please check the picture out at http://www.bcss.org/documents/pdf/CannibisandPsychosis.pdf

So this means I have to quit marijuana or I will get a stroke!!!
