This is one of the dumbest

This is one of the dumbest things I've ever seen. If this were the case, we should see pot induces schizophrenia cases skyrocketing.

Didn't strike me as dumb;

Didn't strike me as dumb; seems well researched, and of course, counter to the desired cultural drift. If you find it wrong, make your case.

I can tell you this from watching.....need for "therapy" is sky-rocketing among high school and college students. Mass shootings seem to involve wacked out types more and more.

The article is the same one I linked to in this post: http://www.asmainegoes.com/content/lets-legalize-goooood-weeeeeed

Liberals would like you to

Who knows?
Pot may set off some type of developmental disability early in the teen brain that would make prescribers think there was a need for psychotropic drugs later in life.
If it was up to me, both would be severely restricted, but I'm not a doctor, although I did drive by a medical center yesterday.

Liberals would like you to believe the NRA is responsible for every school and mass shooting in America. We all know the guns don’t shoot themselves, so why does the media and the politicians who are beholden to major drug companies ignore the common thread in almost every single mass shooting case over the past 20 years?
Nearly every mass shooting incident in the last twenty years and multiple other instances of suicide and isolated shootings all share one thing in common, and it’s not the weapons used.
The overwhelming evidence points to the signal largest common factor in all of these incidents is the fact that all of the perpetrators were either actively taking powerful psychotropic drugs or had been at some point in the immediate past before they committed their crimes.

Read all the way down through the clickbait to see the rogues gallery and their prescriptions.

The truth is the average citizen really doesn't see the individauls who are affected by/with the mental issues etc..
We are at this point still just enjoying this new freedom to get high , w/out certain risks. That is what it is all about.
It is now easier to ignore such articles because of the new age of legalization.
To deny is a penny wise pound foolish IMO.

Marijuana, Mental Illness, and Violence

From Watcher's link:

Over the last 30 years, psychiatrists and epidemiologists have turned speculation about marijuana’s dangers into science. Yet over the same period, a shrewd and expensive lobbying campaign has pushed public attitudes about marijuana the other way. And the effects are now becoming apparent.
Almost everything you think you know about the health effects of cannabis, almost everything advocates and the media have told you for a generation, is wrong.
They’ve told you marijuana has many different medical uses. In reality marijuana and THC, its active ingredient, have been shown to work only in a few narrow conditions. They are most commonly prescribed for pain relief. But they are rarely tested against other pain relief drugs like ibuprofen—and in July, a large four-year study of patients with chronic pain in Australia showed cannabis use was associated with greater pain over time.

The other unspoken point is

The other unspoken point is the major change in concentration of THC in the available product.

It's kind of like the fentanyl issue.
