Remember John P. Walters?
We know marijuana is linked to mental illness — so what are we doing? by John P. Walters in the New York Post.
Yep. The same nonsense that he was promoting years ago. It’s the old “link” to schizophrenia story. And our own Servetus debunked the whole scare earlier this year: Alleged cannabis links to psychosis busted
Of course, Walters buries the important part… “The skeptical will note the study establishes no specific cause-and-effect process, which is more of a caution than a flashing red light.”
In fact, as you continue to read, you understand that he’s simply using the usual scare tactics in the headline in the hopes that people won’t really comprehend the lack of any real… substance in what he writes. He says:
Use your experience.
Almost everyone has family members and friends who have become victims of addiction.
Sometimes it is marijuana, sometimes it is booze, marijuana and other drugs.
Look at the addicted you walk past on downtown streets and the violent mental illness you observe or see reported in the news almost every day.
Yes, some of that mental illness is probably fueled by other addictive drugs such as meth.
But ask yourself how pervasive marijuana use can possibly be harmless to families and communities.
Marijuana’s connection to serious mental-health problems has been reported and studied for more than 100 years.
Yep. It has. And there’s still nothing there to justify not legalizing marijuana.
