Marijuana damages adolescent brains,
health professionals write in op-ed

Two health professionals penned an op-ed in The New York Times on Sunday that despite society’s shift on marijuana use, it does not change the fact that the drug is not safe for high school and college students. Kenneth L. Davis, the president and chief executive of the Mount Sinai Health System, and Mary Jeanne Kreek, the head of Laboratory of the Biology of Addictive Diseases at Rockefeller University, cited studies that show a “deleterious impact on cognitive development in adolescents.” The column said marijuana use can impair "executive function, processing speed, memory, attention span and concentration." They said the explanation is simple: the adolescent brain

I have had this argument with my brainwashed kids for yrs. They don't do drugs but they are convinced that marijuana is perfectly safe. And yet my daughter admits that former friends of hers are essentially brain dead because of marijuana use. The schools have essentially been in on this conspiracy of lies and the politicians are just seeing big bucks to be made on legalization so they are right there with the in crowd. There will be a lost generation because of this idiocy pushed by the left, the funny thing is they are sowing their own demise since marijuana users are famously not motivated to do much of anything including vote. Let's hope this alligator comes back to bite them big time.

I have a beautiful daughter who thinks weed is fine to smoke- and will argue for all the medical benefits- and it won’t harm unborn child- she isn’t pregnant, but believes in power of good mojo provided by weed. I will bring articles up to her- she will say govt agency don’t want truth out.. So.. You have my life.. and said child wants to move to area of country so expensive- no college degree,no plan- except to be internet famous/rich. Which is fine, but again, no plan. Regardless of feel good law of attraction- a plan is a guideline. Kids on weed just don’t care..

Wow! Far out man! We knew this in the 70's. It is why I never got into it heavily. I could watch my friends in college who were really smart turn into stoners... And the stuff they smoke today is WAY stronger than 1972! I got a medical marijuana prescription for pain. Tried it once. Blew my head off! Thought I was on acid!

The long term affects of frequent marijuana use are not well understood. But now we have millions of people using it legally - with many more potential customers waiting in the wings. 20 years from now there will be widespread lawsuits against the weed industry.

#9, the same could have been said about cigarettes in the 50s. Now they are egal but socially and medically unacceptable. If marijuana isn't safe, we need to know about it. Peoples' minds can be changed.

Our politicians already knew this, but legalized it anyway. Just for votes and money. Teach your children well, and pray they avoid this pitfall. Many people will say otherwise, and deny pot is hazardous.

Since smoking pot damages the brains of young people, Democrats will surely propose that abortions be permitted up until age 21. Since Dems are fine with infanticide if the mother does not want the just born baby, they’ll gladly agree to raising the age for a child to be legally aborted to 18 and eventually 21. “Relax, Dear. Take another toke, inhale deeply, and listen to the music. This will be all over in a few peaceful minutes.” Such a policy will be supported by progressives until they realize that their supporters are declining in numbers faster than they can be recruited. While states are eager to collect the taxes on marijuana sales, the long-term costs for medical care, welfare dependency, psychiatric care and crime will be tenfold the taxes collected. Time for the perpetual children of America to grow up.

Question to former Gov. Hickenlooper of Colorado (who is now a fake presidential candidate) who destroyed my state with his signing the recreational marijuana bill into law which effectively invited in the drug cartels who have since created the opioid crisis we now have here: Were you aware of the effects that medical marijuana has on our young people? Or you didn't care and just wanted the sales tax proceeds at the expense of our young people and our state?

I watched my now 31 year old daughter move from vodka as a teen to marijuana. She's gone mentally. She's never kept jobs because with one pay check she would quit and buy marijuana. She's a walking disaster and blames everyone else for her problems. Marijuana has long reaching effects and is not a recreational drug because the never leave the playground.

A big "so what?" Many substances (alcohol, tobacco included) have potentially bad effects. That they have such impacts does not justify the so-called "war on drugs." (we declared war on drugs and the drugs won). How many people are you going to search, arrest, prosecute and imprison to "save them from themselves? Kids will tell you it is generally easier to obtain illegal drugs than it is regulated booze. Legalize it, control it and reduce the harm. The harm cannot be eliminated: but it can be reduced.

I saw this happen to several students I knew in college. They went from good grades in the pre-engineering program to flunked out 'like wow, man' airheads in about 6 to 8 months once they started smoking all the time. You have to be a dope to smoke dope, and if you are, you will get ever more dopey.

The dangers of marijuana have been grossly underestimated. Soros has been pushing marijuana use for decades as the avenue to legitimizing anti social behaviors and attitudes to implement his anti America ideology. A friend's son, now in his late forties, smoked medical marijuana for pains associated with severe diabetes. Though he thought it helped relax him, he has since become manic depressive, and when he hits the marijuana he hears voices in his head inducing paranoic behavior, dangerous to himself or his mother. Several times the EMTs have had to deal with him. It doesn't help that he lives in a sanctuary state with a large untreated mentally ill population. There are many lessons to be learned here.

It's called "dope" for a reason. People who think they're "maintaining", that they're in control when high, are proof of the dopifying dopiness of dope. Why junk up your brain when you need every bit of your wits about you?

MSNBC’s Chris Matthews is worried that Democrats and their Hollywood “buddies” have not learned important lessons from the 2016 presidential election. The “Hardball” host told network colleagues on “Morning Joe” that President Trump is primed to once again win votes in Pennsylvania and key states due to the hubris of the “liberal elite.” “[Voters in 2016] knew there was a great party going on among the liberal elite with all their Hollywood buddies, and they weren’t invited,” Mr. Matthews said Monday. “Nobody wants to go to a party if they haven’t been invited. … A friend of mine once said — he said this about relationships with men and women —

Responsible people recoil when politically pejorative terms are hurled around. The Left, for example, now calls opponents “Racist!” without any basis.

Democrats are quietly airing concerns that battles with President Trump, including investigations of the president and his administration along with the noisy debate over impeachment, are overshadowing the party’s agenda, threatening its grip on the House in 2020. That narrative has been fueled by Trump, who has used his Twitter feed and interviews to lambaste Democrats as the “Do Nothing Party,” when in fact they have spent the first five months of their House majority ticking through agenda items they highlighted in the midterm campaign, addressing matters including health-care prices, political corruption and background checks for gun buyers. But voters aren’t paying much attention, party leaders are finding,

President Donald Trump is officially withholding hundreds of millions in U.S. aid to three Central American countries as punishment for being much of the source of the current illegal immigration crisis. The White House informed Congress Monday that it will permanently divert $370 million in aid to El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala, according to Reuters. That money was previously approved by Congress for fiscal year 2018, but had not yet been used. Trump is not stopping there. The administration is also suspending $180 million that was approved in fiscal year 2017 that had not yet been spent.

As their minivan rolled north, they felt their nerves kick in — but they kept on driving. At the wheel: Lija Greenseid, a rule-abiding Minnesota mom steering her Mazda5 on a cross-border drug run. Her daughter, who is 13, has Type 1 diabetes and needs insulin. In the United States, it can cost hundreds of dollars per vial. In Canada, you can buy it without a prescription for a tenth of that price. So, Greenseid led a small caravan last month to the town of Fort Frances, Ontario, where she and five other Americans paid about $1,200 for drugs that would have cost them $12,000 in the United States.

COLUMBUS, Ohio – More than 2,700 cases overseen by a former common pleas judge could be reexamined after allegations that the judge came to work drunk and was possibly involved in a local sex trafficking ring in Portsmouth. The Ohio Public Defender's office is launching an effort to review any case overseen by retired Scioto County Common Pleas Court Judge William T. Marshall that involved prison time or other court supervision. That's 2,707 cases in the 15 years Marshall served, said Ohio Public Defender Tim Young. He said there are at least 1,200 cases since 2013, when Marshall was first hospitalized for alcoholism, according to court documents.

If you read the newspapers, tuned into the cable TV pundits or received an email from one of the Democrats running for president, you’d swear Donald Trump was back to his treasonous ways. All that was missing was an annoying OMG text exclamation punctuating the unfounded claims that Trump might violate the law in 2020 by accepting intelligence on a political rival from a foreign country. The inference, of course, is that it would come from a hostile power such as Russia or North Korea or Iran. Actually, what Trump told ABC News’s George Stephanopoulos was that he’d consider taking intelligence dirt about a rival from a friendly ally.
