A woman escaped death after her unnamed 16-year-old boy stabbed her shortly before cutting off his own manhood.
The teenager had gone to bed with a knife after taking Indian hemp, as he started hallucinating, fearing that some people lived right inside the walls of his room.
He got up in the night and stabbed his mother before chopping off his own penis in what doctors said was “cannabis-induced psychotic episode.”
His father told the BBC how the drug turned his otherwise “very bright, bubbly lad” into a paranoid “waste of space.”
“He basically had a psychotic episode and did huge amounts of harm to both himself and his mother,” the distraught father said.
The man said his son tried smoking Indian hemp with a few friends before becoming “completely addicted.”
He said his son had delusions, believing mermaids were real and thought “people were living in the walls.”
Doctors say the boy would undergo further surgery in the coming days.
