One factor that will definitely contribute to an increase in dementia in generation X (who are coming up to middle age) is long term drug use, especially stimulants such as amphetamines, coc aine and ecstasy.

I totally agree. Although I reckon weed is the biggest problem. The newer strains have been grown to have a much higher thc content whilst the cannaboids which is the chemical that helps regulate your brain have been reduced. It is too much for the brain to take and if you are a young smoker you are opening yourself up to all sorts of problems. I stopped using over a year ago because I could feel that I was loosing myself and was pretty sure if I carried on I might reach the point of no return, mentally that is! These newer stronger strains are dangerous and are going to have a huge impact on mental health in years to come.
