Think Cannabis is Harmless?

Sharing a Doobie

One of the pieces of legislation the Trudeau Liberals are most proud of is the Cannabis legislation.  Imagine taking up former Justice Minister Jody Wilson Raybould's precious little time with this "busy work" instead of looking into the serial "Travesties of Justice" committed by the RCMP under orders from the foreign mole CSIS.

All along I've been of the opinion that this legalization of "recreational" marijuana was under orders from the Deep State to create a "cash cow" and also numb Canadians against all the other repressive legislation and changes to our government in preparation for the inevitable "North American Union".  They want Canadians to sleepwalk into neocon, globalist slavery.

Over the past few weeks and months I've collected a few newz reports that perhaps there are more than a few "downsides" to the legalization of cannabis...beyond the pervasive stench of hash smoke in the neighbourhood.  Here is a small sampling of alternative views.  Please read the following three reports and I will have more comments to follow:

From the National Post:

Think cannabis is harmless?  So did I. But I know better now

Opinion: In 2017, 567 people were treated at Vancouver-area hospitals for cannabis overdoses or related mental issues. I was one of them

from CTV news: 

Study links teenage pot use to increased risk of suicidal behaviour
A new study suggests teens who regularly smoke weed are at greater risk of developing depression and suicidal behaviour in young adulthood.
Scientists at McGill University analyzed 11 international longitudinal studies involving people aged 18 to 32 who smoked weekly or daily when they were 18 or younger.
They found a higher rate of diagnosed depression and suicidal behaviour in young adulthood.

Scientists at McGill University analyzed 11 international longitudinal studies involving people aged 18 to 32 who smoked weekly or daily when they were 18 or younger.

They found a higher rate of diagnosed depression, suicide ideation and suicide attempts compared to those who didn't use cannabis in their teens...."
"..."Since we had legalization, young people continue to smoke as before," says Gobbi. "So legalization is not the only response. We need to do more prevention."
Gobbi says the studies included were adjusted for any subjects that may have displayed signs of depression or suicidal tendencies before using pot.
She says adolescents are particularly vulnerable because their brain does not fully develop until age 25.
The findings also dispel misconceptions that weekly pot use is harmless, she adds, noting that scientists found it impossible to differentiate degree of risk between weekly use and daily use.
She explains that the psychoactive property in cannabis -- tetrahydrocannabinol, or THC -- remains in the body "for a long, long time."
"THC is a lipid so it stays in the brain and in the body for one week or even more -- in some individuals until one month. So smoking a joint is not like drinking two or three beers on a Saturday night," says Gobbi, also a researcher in the Brain Repair and Integrative Neuroscience program at the Research Institute of the McGill University Health Centre.
Gobbi says there are many more questions to explore, noting the research did not consider alternate modes of consuming cannabis such as vaping or edibles.
She also notes the subjects were teens during the 1980s, 1990s, and 2000s, when the amount of THC content was generally relatively low.
"Now we have joints that have 10, 20, 30 per cent, even more content of THC so we don't know the impact of the cannabis that we have today on mental health. This is something that of course we have to study more."..."

and, finally, this report from pikespeak

Elderly man has heart attack after consuming powerful marijuana lollipop

The New York Daily News - 11/02/2019
A 70-year-old man reportedly suffered a heart attack after scoring some nearly killer bud, according to a study in the Canadian Journal of Cardiology.

The unnamed man ate 70mg of THC, the active ingredient in cannabis, which triggered a traumatic hallucination. The average marijuana joint contains 7mg of THC, according to a Newsweek report of the story.

The victim -- who'd reportedly tried marijuana earlier in his life -- consumed the THC in the form of a lollipop. He'd never ingested cannabis in an edible form. The amount of marijuana in the lollipop was reportedly four times what the hospitalized man would have experienced in his youth...."


Greencrow says:  My sense from surfing the daily newz is that the PTB in their corporatist towers are disappointed at the lackluster response to the legalization of marijuana.  Canadians have not been lining up at the few dispensaries that were started up, in order to satisfy what they thought would be a crush of buyers.  More and more you see what I call "subliminal advertising" and "product placement" on TV and on the Internet in the hope of spiking or "stimulating" the market.  The Government-[taxpayer]-paid-for ads, warning of the "dangers" of smoking cannabis, look more and more like attempts to normalize and/or glamourize the nasty and stinky habit.

What they hoped was that elderly hippies would attempt to relive their youth, by smoking doobies every weekend, while listening to their old "Pink Floyd" LP's.  They also hoped that the young adults and middle-aged would forgo their white wine and beer... to toke-up in the evenings after a busy work day.  Hasn't happened.

Instead, the gullible and vulnerable teens and early twenties are smoking stronger and stronger weed and consequently doing more damage to their developing brains.  Sad--and dangerous. So, IMO, we can chalk the Cannabis legislation initiative up as yet another failed policy of Justin Trudeau...another deception and another distraction.  Again, I would have much preferred le Dauphin had focused Jody Wilson Raybould's prodigious talent and energies on cleaning up the tarnished justice system--by shutting down the "Travesty of Justice" False Flag factories run by the RCMP and CSIS.

Quebec's health minster, a paediatrician, proposed that the minimum age for cannabis be raised to 21.Although he would have preferred 25, he realized that it is not practical. Despite the objections of Montreal's mayor, it is also illegal to use cannabis on public property.

Big Pharma thanks you for your misguided and uninformed war on marijuana.

"Big Pharma thanks you...."

As was revealed in the investigations into the Sherman Family's Apotex business dealings last year as part of the homicide investigation into Barry and Honey's was revealed that the bidness was planning to invest heavily into legalized marijuana...just like the other big pharma companies.

Thanks for your comment albertde...the alarm about the dangers of smoking cannabis has been sounded by many professionals...including little moi, who as a child protection social worker dealing with parents struggling with addiction...I can say that cannabis smoking directly and negatively impacts parenting.

In Amerika
The stores are popping up
Why do I have a feeling that most are owned by law enforcement folks????
When I watched this show about weed on the vice cable show called weediquette
I knew legalizing is wrong
When the host is interviewing people
Some are the hippies looking for the high and people that think they have pain but are just weak excuses for taking it the same way they take legalize drugs
The pills are there
So they want the fix
Now the weed is there
They want there fix
I am thinking for extreme pain
Its that or drugs and both suck
I heard local radio station talking about how MORE POTENT IT IS
They said it is not like getting from your dealer
You are getting high doses of legalized drugs added in to make it potent and dangerous
This will create the next generation of victims that every generation turns out after they thought something was right and all it did was create victims
Our generation is the legalized drug epidemic
The cancer epidemic for bad choices
Try sucking it up and get over it
I am living proof
And I am a pussy
But I can deal with pain and not cry when something happens
I think you can do the same think with booze
Drink till you do not feel pain
And for the recreational user
One dayyyyyyyyyyyy you will regret being a Guinee pig for our criminal government
When the first store opened
They newz hyuped it and it was packed
Now they are quietly opening with not much fanfare
Not sure if still big lines???
But it was well hyped so the lines would be big
Always avoid hype
That is when they are rounding the sheeple up

Entirely ridiculous drug war propaganda.

When one's life is determined by what they did for years, being enmeshed and brainwashed by the very system one seems to poo poo with every post, I am not at all surprised to read such drama driven articles.

I can assure you that what you are presenting is blatant bogus hogwash (I know you BELIEVE, but that doesn't make it true). Scare tactics that is used to rid us of a miracle medicine. I think it is stupid.

greencrow said...

BuelahMan for an iconoclast such as yourself...who doesn't regard anyone as worthy of sure bought the governments' legalization of marijuana agenda hook, line and sinker. You will note that I did not say I disapproved of medical marijuana. Hey, if something works for those in pain...I'm all for it. I also don't disapprove of morphine for cancer patients.

Having spoken to young people who do smoke recreational marijuana...ironically, they disapprove of the "legalization" of it as well. They say the Trudeau government should have just "de-criminalized it". They recognize that the government just wanted to get in, take over and eventually raise prices.

Here is a clip from weediquette
A show on the vice channel
This show pretty much promoted dope
So this segment contradicts the whole agenda for the show
I have seen the pros of weed
But when I hear it is laced with powerful chemicals to make it stronger
Go take natural weed and stay away from the legal shit
Cuz if there are agents in it that cure cancer
Use the real stuff
Using a state run store with added chemicals is like buying from a junkie adding chemicals to make you OD
Here is the weediquette 4 minute soundbite of the dangers
After watching you decide
