Cannabis causes psychosis. Psychosis causes violence.

Original Article

Posted By: Judy W., 5/26/2022 8:26:57 AM

Yep, there it is, the first reference to cannabis use by Salvador Ramos, the Texas elementary school killer. In the New York Times. Took 24 hours, give or take. And Ms. Rodriguez recalled he would often talk about how much he despised his mother and grandmother, whom he told her did not let him smoke weed or do what he wanted. This is only one case. Except it’s not. Nikolas Cruz, the Florida high school shooter, was a heavy user and told the police detective who interviewed him that he heard voices. Devin Patrick Kelley - who shot up a Texas church and killed 26 people in 2017


Berenson literally wrote the book on this -- "Tell Your Children: The Truth About Marijuana, Mental Illness, and Violence." In the article he also mentions the huge increase in violent crime after marijuana was legalized in various places.

This information has been around for years. But because the left likes weed…

Not just the left that likes weed. An honest survey would show the so called right and even those who profess to be believers will use weed. I agree with the article. However, there is something that is being left out...the parent, and grandparents of Ramos are major drug users and dealers. Check their criminal backgrounds...all of them. He is a product of his family life. Unfortunately.

Marijuana definitely does cause psychosis in some people. I had a high school friend who succumbed to it, and forever ruined his life, as he sank into psychosis and could not recover. It also affected another friend, and ruined his life, as he never was successfully employed after using it, that becoming his mission, rather than positive goals. I do not support marijuana legalization. If you think marijuana is medicinal, get a doctor to prescribe it.

I see too many kids under the influence of weed in school. It’s a major problem. Every one of the students who use are low-achievers and failing. I see how they are in classes. It’s bad stuff, really bad.

From the very fragmentary evidence we have, it is clear that Salvador Ramos was a psychopath, a common psychiatric disorder manifested be a reduced capacity to feel empathy for others. And why is the evidence fragmentary? Because his psychiatric, criminal and school records are purposely hidden from our view. And why is that? Because these records show that his psychiatrists, the criminal justice system and the school administration repeatedly failed to manage his disorder at every level. Why is this concept never discussed by politicians or by the media? Let's have Beto ask about it!

I'll also add that the mind of an 18-year-old is going in ten different directions at once all the time to begin with. The brain is not fully developed yet. Add in a heavy dose of hormones and almost anything can set an 18-year-old off. It's why the thinking and reasoning skills of someone that age is so screwed up some of the time. It also makes for a perfect military recruit. Since their minds can be molded quickly.

More gun laws! Guns cause these mass shootings! Think of the children! More cannabis laws! Weed causes these shootings! Think of the children! Depending on which side you take more laws and restrictions probably won't put an end to mental illness. Let face it - killing someone with no remorse is far from normal behavior. Whether you use a gun, hammer or SUV. Taking multiple lives is beyond most of our abilities to comprehend such madness. A broken mind is hard to mend. You sometimes just can't stop evil with a law. Maybe slow it down but evil and despair is not attributable to solitary triggers.

How many others live the draining daily agony that you do, #9. There must be millions. That doesn't change or ameliorate your personal pain in even the slightest way, of course. This drug curse is something so pervasive, crossing all social and economic lines. My step-family lived a similar horror, so I have a slight sense of the precious time and resources they devoted to trying to help their no good result. I am so sorry for your loss. When your precious baby was born, you could never have imagined this nightmare.

I wonder if he took Ritalen? The news media did mention this in every mass shooting up until the Oregon shooting. Every single shooter was taking Ritalen or another drug of this type. These kids do not learn to deal with anger issues as children then when the hormones kick in, we see this.

Tobacco and alcohol have been used by human culture for millennia. And their ill effects have been deemed to be controllable and acceptable for 'quality' of life enhancement. (You might disagree with the term but there it is). Drugs like marijuana, cocaine, heroin are in a different category. I suppose that is why the counterculture took to them.

Marijuana strains have been systematically, intentionally genetically modified to be as strong and hallucinogenic as possible. As is always the case with intoxicants, a tolerance is built up requiring stronger and more frequent doses. But the brain is finite and its chemistry can only take so much abuse. What is lost today is lost forever, especially in terms of physical changes.

A relative by marriage was a heavy marijuana user as a teen. She was diagnosed with schizotypal personality disorder in her 20s. She's now in her 60s, and despite lots of prescription medications, her entire adult life has been a train wreck for her and her four children (by four different men) as well.

The psychosis came first. It has been well known in the mental health field that a number of street drugs and legal substances as well. can exacerbate or mimic mental illness. As a recovering alcoholic. I used alcohol for years to "Treat" my underlying depression. This shooter's mental state was out there for all to see and no one bothered to intervene. Why? Because it's cheaper to dispense pills, than to re-open Mental Institutions.

Sad for the weak minds that want to use intoxicants to change their reality. As a teen and young college student I tried alcohol many times, because of social pressures. I never liked what it did to me, during the drinking and after the drinking. I never tried any drugs, frankly terrified of the mind problems that they can cause, just like this report states. For me, zero intoxicants has been how I have enjoyed my long life. I don't try to preach to others, but I have seen huge amounts of harm from alcohol and "safe" drugs like marijuana. I've fortunately never been around any of the harder drugs, always choose my friends more carefully than that.

Oh, heck, #26, you beat me to it. I came of age in the 60s and well remember going to see that movie and laughing at it. Now I know better. I knew a guy in college who smoked his first joint before he got out of bed in the morning. Lost touch with him until around 1998. He never married, never had any kind of career, drifted from one minimum wage job to the next and was still smoking it 25 years later. He never became violent but was too stoned to do much of anything in life. No doubt, there are a few million just like him.

During the month of June, lawmakers in Washington, D.C., plan to hold six public hearings on the events that took place on Jan. 6. Two of them are even scheduled during primetime TV in an effort by Democrats to maximize their attempt to frame what happened that day at the U.S. Capitol. (Snip) They determined long ago who to blame and what narrative to tell. Now, thanks to a new documentary called “Capitol Punishment,” Americans are able to hear stories from the people who were there on Jan. 6—in their own words and the ordeals they’ve faced since that day.

A student at Uvalde High School in Texas who says he knew Salvador Ramos rejected the prevailing media narrative that the gunman was the victim of bullying, and this was the catalyst for his May 24 mass shooting at Robb Elementary School. Ivan Arellano, a senior at Uvalde High School, told WFAA-TV in Dallas that Ramos “was not a good person” and had been a bully himself. “Salvador Ramos was a boy who was not bullied,” Arellano said on Wednesday. “He would try to pick on people but fail, and it would aggravate him.” (Snip) He would hurt animals.

Something About School Shootings 17 replies

Every mass school shooting strikes terror in parents’ hearts and grief in the communities in which they occur. You might from press coverage have the idea that they are a regular occurrence, but, in fact, they remain rare -- 13 mass school shootings since 1966. Still, like all seemingly incomprehensible tragedies it causes a search for meaning. After all, people my age went to schools where there were rifle clubs. Kids in those clubs regularly brought their weapons to school, and yet there weren’t any school shootings. (I expect in some rural areas of the country this may still be the case.)
How Biden’s Menthol Ban Endangers Black Bodies 12 replies

President Joe Biden's ban on menthol cigarettes will put black communities at risk of more violent interactions with police, according to myriad experts ranging from former law enforcement to left-wing constitutional attorneys. The Biden administration has made no secret of the fact that targeting menthol cigarettes is meant to change the behavior of the black community, alleging that a ban will help reduce racial disparities in the health care system. Criminalizing black people's behavior, according to the Biden administration, is the best course of action. "Black smokers prefer menthol products, and the Biden administration's decision to ban menthol cigarettes will inevitably fuel an already well-established, lucrative, and violent illicit market,"

Not so long ago, Republicans said they had sworn off nation-building. Following the failure of the neoconservative project in Iraq and Afghanistan, GOP leaders seemed to have learned their lesson. But apparently not. Now nation-building is back with force, with a massive aid package to Ukraine that makes that country a US client state. Up next: a debate over expanding NATO. Many Republicans in Congress have already lined up to support both, almost reflexively. Why? Perhaps because they have forgotten their foreign-policy heritage. They have traded the nationalism of Theodore Roosevelt for the globalism of Woodrow Wilson. That’s a mistake. What America needs is not nation-building, but nationalism.

Is the COVID Pandemic about to Get Ugly? 19 replies
Posted by Judy W. 5/26/2022 6:05:30 AM Post Reply
For a pandemic to be brought under control, a sufficient part of the population needs to acquire sterilizing immunity so that transmission among individuals can be minimized and herd immunity of the whole population can be achieved. COVID mass vaccinations have been a medical disaster in the U.S. and many other countries because the vaccines allow high levels of transmission of the virus and block our innate and naturally acquired immunity. As a result of this high level of COVID infection spread, the current lull in virulence (severe outcomes and deaths) will soon skyrocket to levels far higher than 2020.

I taught English at Yale University for ten years. I had some vivid, idiosyncratic students—people who went on to write novels, devote themselves to their church, or just wander the world for a few years. But mostly I taught what one of them herself called “excellent sheep.” These students were excellent, technically speaking. They were smart, focused, and ferociously hard-working. But they were also sheep: stunted in their sense of purpose, waiting meekly for direction, frequently anxious and lost. I was so struck by this—that our “best and brightest” students are so often as helpless as children—that I wrote a book about it.

Washington—A federal jury on Tuesday found former Hillary Clinton campaign lawyer Michael Sussmann not guilty of lying to the FBI — finding special counsel John Durham did not prove his case beyond a reasonable doubt. The verdict by a jury in heavily Democratic-leaning DC, came midway through the second day of deliberations following a two-week trial on a single count of making false statements to a federal agent. Durham’s prosecution team unsuccessfully sought to prove that Sussmann deliberately lied to then-FBI general counsel James Baker by claiming not to be acting on behalf of the Clinton campaign and an internet executive when the two met in 2016.

George Will’s recent column reviewing the first 500 days of the Biden presidency includes praise for the president’s “deft diplomacy” and “stunning achievement” in the administration’s response to Ukraine. According to Will, Biden’s diplomacy is substantially responsible for nudging Germany to play a larger geopolitical role and persuading Finland to join NATO, thus extending the alliance’s reach to more than 800 miles of Russia’s border. Biden, he writes, has revised the concept of the West, but Will writes that Biden’s achievement will not earn him political dividends because “what Americans usually want in foreign policy is as little as possible.”

Where his peers had carried the weight of the Democrat Party with the standard misrepresentations of mass shooting statistics and the types of firearms responsible for most heinous crimes, Todd took aim at the culture.
