Kade…. “fear mongering lies”…. sorry Kade, if this happened back then, and the new MJ is more potent, then he is right to advise caution to young people. This is NOT “fear mongering lies”… Think about it.
Mr. Berenson is conflating many issues in his anti Cannabis crusade. No one argues that only adults should be allowed recreational access. Most of his notions seem to be centered on teen pot use. His attempt to link Cannabis with all manner of mental illness is ludicrous. In 50 years of extensive experience with Cannabis products in many forms I have never seen any of the outlandish effects he talks. The violence link is laughable. As a young sailor I smoked too much Red Lebanese hash once and for a time my vision was very blurry. It wore off quickly and was a non issue. I suggest people that have psychosis or other issues are predisposed to mental or other problems and that Cannabis is no more a cause than consuming water.
I can recall being in high school in the 70s smoking weed between classes. During the waning days of my freshman year, during finals, I “celebrated” with a group of schoolmates with a large and particularly potent joint. Immediately after, i couldn’t feel my body and I couldn’t hear anyone speaking, although they were talking directly to me. I asked those around me to walk close by in case my legs couldn’t support me. My field of vision turned yellow, and I had to skip my last final because I couldn’t remotely function. I cowered in restroom after restroom running thru the school scared to death because I thought I was being pursued by military police. This was back in 1979, I am now 55 and it’s as vivid as if it happened yesterday. To this day, I can’t even smell marijuana smoke without becoming anxious and sick to my stomach. Changed me forever. Be careful, kids.
Sounds like you got too high and couldn’t handle it… maybe you shouldn’t judge a plant off the one time you consumed it? Not to mention it had the WORST regulation during that time and YOU can’t be certain it wasn’t laced with another drug…. stop spreading fear mongering lies.
I’m 60 have smoked marijuana, hash, etc. off and on over the years and ran in those circles that did so as well. Never have I or anybody else I know of had any reaction like that. I suspect you were either smoking something else or you’re exaggerating. The worst reaction I know of is possibly some paranoia
