While I agree with this premise that we need to come to terms with the truth about the science on marijuana, schizophrenia is not caused by marijuana, as the article seems to convey. There must be a genetic predisposition for schizophrenia to develop. Without it, this mental illness will not just appear as a result of smoking weed.

Alex Berenson loses what little credibility he has left every time he opens his mouth.

Marijuana and violence? No. Marijuana and naps? Sure.

Marijuana was made illegal due to the efforts of one man, Harry J. Anslinger, Commissioner of the U.S. Federal Bureau of Narcotics.

When he was making speeches about the evils of marijuana he said a lot of weird stuff.

* Warning, his quotes are racist *

"There are 100,000 total marijuana smokers in the US, and most are Negroes, Hispanics, Filipinos and entertainers. Their Satanic music, jazz and swing, result from marijuana usage. This marijuana causes white women to seek sexual relations with Negroes, entertainers and any others."

"Marihuana leads to pacifism and communist brainwashing"

"Reefer makes darkies think they're as good as white men."

"Marijuana is the most violence-causing drug in the history of mankind."

"the primary reason to outlaw marijuana is its effect on the degenerate races."

"Marijuana is an addictive drug which produces in its users insanity, criminality, and death."

- Harry J. Anslinger, Commissioner of the U.S. Federal Bureau of Narcotics

I hereby refuse to click that link as it's most likely nonsense.

Despite the negative sounding outlook of the short introductory statement of this review of the medical literature, the real message of the article is that the medical dangers of cannabis are not evident until its use becomes quite excessive. It's much safer than alcohol or tobacco use.

I'm not a user. I don't why anyone would want to alter their consciousness unless they're really unhappy with themselves. I don't get it, but then I'm an optimist. In fact, I remember coming down one Christmas morning and finding my stocking full of horse manure. I figured they bought me a pony!...I was disappointed, but not discouraged.

And the munchies, lol.

As for the OP's article, "Underlying Issues"? MJ does NOT cause schizophrenia. Nonsense.
