Psychosis! They put psychosis in the headline. Things must be getting bad for the parents if Park Slope if the Times put psychosis in the headline.
It only took, lemme see, 3.5 years after I published Tell Your Children. So expect the Times to start reporting honestly on the mRNA shots sometime in 2025.
No rush, boyos!
The adults that are voting YES to legalizing weed are basing it off memories of the weak stuff from the 80's and 90's. The latest lab-honed weed is something totally different than that, and actually dangerous. If states are going to legalize this stuff, they need to regulate the strength, too. Kids are being sacrificed so Deadheads can regain (relive) their youth.
Legalization of drugs fits with the society we are moving towards. Drugged people are easy to control, The Metaverse is where they can live as they miss the wonderful real world that surrounds us.
Welcome to the Brave New World!
Its fine. Lock 'em out of school, mask 'em up and drug them. How do you create an obedient class of cultists again?
Don’t get too excited, Alex. Probably the Pharma genuses + MSM mouth breathers have teamed up to find yet another causality for the problematic jabs. “Bongs and Bloodclots”—NYT exclusive, coming soon.
P.S. I’m being facetious and agree with everything you’ve said about the harms of pot. About 30 years ago, I had a violent paranoid break on it, which led me to never use it again. Anecdotally, I believe it’s especially harmful for teens/ people with developing bodies and brains, since I’m not the only person that I’ve spoken to who has had a similar reaction at a similar age.
Ugh. I was just talking about your book to a friend who's a psych nurse and then remembered that one of her sons is a total pothead. Awkward.
In my community they are closing family mini-golf courses and putting cannabis dispensaries in. It's a transformation of dumbing down society. Couple that with the decline of public school education and ridiculous indoctrination, sexualizing children, pushing victimization, flooding our countries with illegals, doing nothing to stop other drugs crossing the border, etc., and it equals a train wreck for the USA.
Easy weed access, transgender grooming, and dangerous mRNA for babies. Their goal couldn't be more clear.
Jesus, gain of function weed. Who'da thunk it?
It's part of the agenda to make the population dependent, psychotic and completely useless. THC is habit forming, will destroy your mind and turn you into an unemployable or useful citizen who will do anything to get high. Proven and documented long ago but no one cares.
Someone smarter than me should look at the correlation between weed smoking and compliance. Canadians have been smoking weed for years, and it has been legal for around 7 years. I know some folks who can't hold a thought in their head for more than a few seconds - and they are jabbed to the eyeballs. It's no surprise that this country has an uptake of around 90% fully jabbed.
ANYTHING taken to its extreme has negative effects: Food, pharmaceuticals, alcohol, vaccines, WEED...
Even water drunk to excess can kill you.
Once weed became a PRODUCT, the game became:
How to squeeze more out of less.
Cater to consumers' worst impulses.
Same as it ever was.
Best reason of many for home grow.
Teenagers are inherently risk taking.
Thus, not all will survive those years.
Can't save them all, as the opportunities for excess are every-where. We can't manage all risks for all people at all times.
It's time to get back to PERSONAL responsibility.
Don't worry, big pharma is working on drugs to deal with the new "weed-chosis" and all the related ills. New Beatles song..."All You Need Is Drugs" as the modern stone age medical system pushes all-for-drugs-and-drugs-for-all.
The calculations to drool by: 5 billion humans (after gates and fauci offs off a few more) X $ 1,000 average drug cost/human/year = $5 trillion/year windfall for big pharma.
And no windfall taxes like they want for the energy industry because Congress loves big pharma drugs!
I can attest to the fact as I have two young family members that are pot heads. One has psychosis and the other has major life issues. This isn't their parents "weed".
In response the FDA bans the nicotine delivery system JUUL, which was instrumental in my quitting cigarettes years ago.
"Experts" are wrong about literally everything. Democrat politicians went from, "let's lessen the penalties for marijuana use" to "weed is a medicinal herb" really fast. Society will suffer the consequences of their foolishness.
Booze is bad and a large segment of the American population doesn't handle it well, particularly teenagers. But at least it's regulated and one can rely on the percentage of alcohol content, etc. But pot?! States have legalized it with little to no regulation as to the potency and I absolutely believe that it is the cause of the widespread psychosis (and related violence) of young adults in this country.
You were a visionary regarding Covid, ditto for THC.
it will take longer than that. you are being WAAAAAAAAAY too optimistic!
Where I go for pain management they're now asking me if I want a "card". A what? "Oh, a medical marijuana card". Yeah, no.
How it works is, you go in, you have a few consults with the pain psychologist, you tell the anesthesiologist you're seeing that pot works for you to mitigate pain, you get your card ... and then, you're free to go for an indefinite period with no follow up. We don't do that for anything else prescribed for pain. I know some "card" holders who used to be able to have a conversation. Not any more.
My friends who have smoked weed recently tell me it's crazy different from what they smoked as teenagers. I'm not sure if that's going to be part of what they tell THEIR children.
With that said, I wouldn't be surprised in the least if we see the word "psychosis" disappear from the Times article within the next 24 hours.
The war on drugs is old news. They've been trying to demonize marijuana for decades. There's negative side effects associated with abusing almost any substance, you know kinda like that other legal drug that everyone drinks daily.
Marijuana has huge medicinal benefits which shouldn't be over shadowed by the few who choose to abuse it.
yes - 2025, Jan 20th is when we will start seeing some honest reporting. The minute this turd is out of the WH
Alex, I know you've discussed this in the past with Rogan, but it's time to revisit it with him. It might break the internet.
The highest thc levels in some strains is 23-24 percent. Most strains are in the teens. THC may have ligit applications and uses for mood disorders, lack of appetite and more. decriminalization is an important step in allowing the medical community to ligit study this substance. There will always be harms associated. Who would want to live in a world with NO access to any narcotic pain killer? sometimes narcotics are livesaving. Anything can be abused. Alcohol causes huge problems. If our society was more free, there would be more prosperity, less stress. There would be less reliance on substances to ease our psychological and physical pain.
Alex. No matter what kind of device you use: PC, Mac, Android, iPhone... all of them can take screenshots ;)
Correlation does not imply causation. While agree that excessive usage, especially of edibles, can cause psychosis, it’s not entirely certain to me whether it’s from the plant itself, some unnatural adulteration, or another correlated factor. And as far as chronic vomiting goes, I have first hand experience that suggests it’s from potassium bromate/bromide in delivery pizza. I cut that out, on a gluten free diet, kept smoking, and the chronic vomiting that my doctor claimed was from chronic pancreatitis miraculously went away. Since then, I have added wheat back into my diet, minus all additives only the FDA is negligent enough to approve (potassium bromate, azodicarbonamide, benzoyl peroxide, butylated hydroxytoluene, folic acid—which is not equivalent to dietary folate) and malted barley (which is processed with potassium bromate in the US), and no issues. Also, it’s interesting to note that potassium bromide, the byproduct of heating potassium bromate in an oven, was once an OTC sedative until the 1970s, when it was banned because it caused psychosis and all sorts of neurological issues. But that’s okay to keep in the food, apparently only in the US and a couple other countries.
I am sad to hear all the negativity on God's pain med. I have been using medical marijuana for my pain for a few years now. Using MJ allowed me to remove the more powerful oxycodone from my life, so just for that I am thankful. I was also disheartened that they legalized it here in my blue state because it has made it more difficult to find my normal prescription. I am not a pothead as many would think. I did smoke a little when I was younger but now I use it to control pain. There are now a variety of edibles to eliminate the odor when necessary. Never heard of MJ reaching such a high potency level. Mine is usually 60-70%. I think I'd like to try that newfangled stuff.
EDIT: 60-70% on a vape pen, the weed is usually 20-30%. There are higher percentages, but I cannot afford it.
My state opened dispensary sales short while ago. Earlier this week a young 33 , pretty woman under influence crashed and killed 2, injured 4. I thought we have not seen the final on this.
Alex riling up the potheads again
First of all, I do not necessarily believe that people should be using cannabinoids for recreation, any more than they should not use excess alcohol, excess sugar, or other drugs. However, cannabis and the hemp version have been an extremely important part of both medical and societal usages for centuries. At the point where cannabis (and hemp) became illegal, because of planned misconceptions and lies, the petroleum based pharmaceutical companies wanted a monopoly. To do this, they had to get rid of cannabis, which was in MOST of the current medications prior to this. When cannabis became illegal, the illegal market made the cannabis with a higher THC content. This was indeed expected. If left alone, these changes would not have had the economic reason for occurring. Everyone, PLEASE look up the positive benefits of these substances PRIOR to making judgments. Yes, there may be some problems that need to be solved with these changes. People need to be educated on both the benefits and the drawbacks. However, the benefits to many people with chronic diseases outweigh their living miserable lives. Not ALL of the cannabis have high THC. There are many strains. I have never seen, much less utilized these substances. However, I realize now, after educating myself at PubMed, the Sacred Plant, and other sites, that several of my loved ones needlessly died of cachexia secondary to cancer. It is a CRIME that the petrochemical pharmaceutical companies have a monopoly on prescribed medications, which DO cause hundreds of thousands of deaths yearly.
Only solution is education of those you raise and love. Ignorance, like accepting the Covid-shot may get you and your loved ones killed. We now live in a 21'st century jungle, and the dangers are everywhere. Teach your children and grandchildren the dangers of the wild.
Another consequence of the "pandemic."
Yep! Lock everyone inside, and figure that weed is OK b/c no one is driving--and gee whiz, it's legal after all.
Lots of people (insufficiently) upset about fentanyl smuggled across the wide-open border.
Your government at work.
I have known several people over my 7 decades on this planet who were excessive pot heads, alcoholics or both. Let me be clear anyone who needs any chemical substance for anything other than a medical reason is abusing their body. I have seen people have seizures and withdrawals from cannabis as well as alcohol. Does this sound like something harmless? Wake up.! They are using drugs in the same way he USSR used alcohol to control the masses. They don't care if it kills you. After all that is their end game, to kill us off in any way they can. Druggies and alcoholics save them the trouble of forcing an injection on them to cut down "the surplus population". This is all about self-serving gred and thesooner people wake up the better.
.....teens are getting sick and pulling triggers.
Wild idea: don't tax it.
Perhaps we could use a bit more antagonism between government and industry.
That’s why it needs to be legal and regulated.
Buy questionable shit and smoke your brains out = psychosis. Ever lived with an alcoholic- talk about fun! Any drug in excess creates brain issues. Look into those SSRI’s
This is no different that someone who drinks alcohol regularly or other class C drug. My dad had multiple surgeries with in a short period of time to repair a damaged hand. After 2 to 3 surgeries, they had to change the anesthetic as it was causing memory issues. So, its time to ask, what were they thinking?
It's interesting because Altria recently had its Juul tobacco vaping product banned by the FDA. Yet, weed is legal in many states and was not banned. Frankly, I think that weed (and vaping) is stupid, but I also believe you should be free to do what you want with your life including but not limited to weed, vaping, skydiving, drag racing, cave diving, or any number of risky behaviors. It seems that government bureaucrats pick winners and losers and they're not very good at doing that in a way that makes sense. At the end of the day I want government out of my life and I don't want them making decisions about my guns, my healthcare, and any alcohol or drugs that I consume.
While we continue to outsource the raising of our children to other people, things will get worse. No parent is perfect and unfortunately, there are some that shouldn't be parents but parents as a group have a far greater interest in properly raising children over government instititutions and Quango's. We put them into the state's hands from a year old...what did we expect.
What does Alex think about CBD, does anyone know? For medicinal purposes? Is it only the THC that poses a risk? I give my dog pure CBD but find it doesn’t agree with me - it actually makes me feel anxious, strangely enough.
The next wave of mass shootings will be committed by transgender girls who are transitioning to boys. These poor mutilated souls will be all hopped up on SSRIs and testosterone. And once they realize that they’ve been lied to, mutilated and exploited they will take up arms and seek revenge against those that made them into freaks
Not to worry, most of us will be dead by then. Since they don't need taxpayers because they can just print money, the government is killing us off. The swamp and the deep state could manage so much better without having to provide services and pay entitlements. We are such a burden and an annoyance to the DC crowd.
Alex Berenson you are years ahead of the curve now they must try to live in objective reality. And admit they the Elite media was wrong again. They have no audience to make their case.
Modern leftists want you dumb stoned or dead
It is still illegal on the federal level. That is good and hopeful. Doctors take a risk with federal DEA registration if they prescribe or dispense the stuff. Just this week I ran into a 20 something with a rough psychologic history who didn't know that MJ can cause all those problems. I recommended Alex's book, Tell your children the truth... https://youtu.be/Qs1HIwW3y6c?t=157
First of all, thank you very much for the opportunity to comment. I just want to put up as a flagrant disclaimer, marijuana is a gray drug, and the shit bags who come in here telling us how it’s so great and there’s no problems and we’re all evil for challenging its efficacy for these losers who just want to sit at home and be stoned motherfuckers all day, I hope they all die!
For the recreational users, do it, be responsible, and people like me don’t care. Just be honest and attentive to what happens when you smoke pot, be careful when you interact with society, like driving, God forbid working a job, or having responsible duties like taking care of children or other factors where people depend on you.
At the end of the day, seeing these losers come into treatment facilities and complain how their lives are shit but they’re smoking pot every day and can’t put two and two together, that pot is not helping them at the very least, I can’t fix stupid!
And pot makes people stupid. Pot makes people apathetic. Pot makes people lazy. Pot makes people dangerous because they don’t pay attention to nuts and bolts stuff that human beings need to do.
So, the shit bags below who are going to challenge us, fuck off!!! Because you’re not going to change your behaviors because you’re addicts, and addiction programs won’t address you because they don’t see cannabis as a substance of importance.
So, go somewhere else or prepare to be marginalized into utter irrelevance!
And if you don’t like my comment, fuck you! Go back to your bongs and joints, your stupid video games, and whatever else you do that provides nothing of substance and value to humanity!
This administration and many states are fine with legalizing this drug.... yet are going after nicotine like it’s the real problem.
I don’t think things are getting bad for parents- parents are getting bad at parenting. If your kids are dope heads or alcoholics It’s your fault,the parents Treating them like a pet cat to run wild in the streets. That’s not parenting that’s more like abandonment. Parents you are the ones in control remember. Thinking the government can fix your problems that’s psychosis. Whether it’s in the stores or in the streets It’s currently illegal in all 50 states for children to purchase it.
I think we all know that when the natives or indigenous peeps smoked weed before modern day tech there was not vomiting and psychosis happening. Just sayin. Sure there is the possibility, but something tells me it was never an issue and a part of natures gifts to those who are born and die on planet earth. Concentrate ANYthing and you have issues. It's not nice to mess with mother nature!
Always listen to the government if you want to be led down the wrong path and harmed. B/C the govt and said agencies are narcissistic by nature...cards stacked fully in their favor and they do not give a damn about you...you are an object to be used, controlled and be taken advantage of financially. Same thing with legalizing gambling (as long as it's contolled by and enriching the state you know), who cares if you're spending your last dollar on a lotto with your cigs.
They forgot to put SAD’s in their list also. Eeeeeeww this is almost as scary as Covid. If somebody is smoking weed around you don’t forget your mask. But don’t take ivermectin it won’t Work on psychosis , Like it does the spike of Covid. Alex is the king of trolls he always gets everybody going with this one.
