How many candidates are saying this?


Be honest with yourself, for a change.

  1. Bogus “study” recruits mental patients with known disorders and tallies up which ones use cannabis. All they’ve discovered, via Occam’s Razor, is that mentally stressed individuals self-medicate. That’s it. It’s been old news for a long time. This is a repeat.
  2. Though they did measure for alcohol, I found a very curious omission indeed: no mention of anti-depressants or other psychiatric drugs! The ones whose labels explicitly warn of psychotic episodes.

FDA’s “Black Box” Warning on prescription drugs (2012 version):

“Clinical Worsening and Suicide Risk: Patients, their families, and their caregivers should be encouraged to be alert to the emergence of anxiety, agitation, panic attacks, insomnia, irritability, hostility, aggressiveness, impulsivity, akathisia (psychomotor restlessness), hypomania, mania, other unusual changes in behavior, worsening of depression, and suicidal ideation, especially early during antidepressant treatment and when the dose is adjusted up or down. Families and caregivers of patients should be advised to look for the emergence of such symptoms on a day-to-day basis, since changes may be abrupt. … Symptoms such as these may be associated with an increased risk for suicidal thinking and behavior and indicate a need for very close monitoring and possibly changes in the medication.” (FDA, 2012, emphasis added)

The media, including NPR, has run with this “study” using the implication that cannabis CAUSES the problem, when not even the authors dare to claim this. So, it has become a propaganda meme, not so much science.

Cannabis use is associated with increased risk of later psychotic disorder but whether it affects incidence of the disorder remains unclear.

Rigged studies are associated with finding what the researchers want to find!

This is more propaganda than science.

The contribution of cannabis use to variation in the incidence of psychotic disorder…

We included patients aged 18–64 years who presented to psychiatric services in 11 sites across Europe and Brazil with first-episode psychosis and recruited controls representative of the local populations. We applied adjusted logistic regression models to the data to estimate which patterns of cannabis use carried the highest odds for psychotic disorder.

Say again? Now?

They assumed cannabis causes “psychotic disorder” and simply found that psychotic disorder patients like to self-medicate with cannabis. I wonder why?

“assuming causality,”

“…Nevertheless, it is not clear whether, at a population level, patterns of cannabis use influence rates of psychotic disorder.”

PS.

The very next fucking day!!!

I’m getting tired of being correct so fucking often, but not getting paid for it.

JEFF SESSIONS SUED IN LANDMARK LAWSUIT CHALLENGING THE CONSTITUTIONALITY OF THE CONTROLLED SUBSTANCES ACT

In a 90-page Complaint, attorneys representing five plaintiffs maintain that the CSA, in classifying Cannabis as a “Schedule I drug,” is so irrational that it violates the U.S. Constitution.

White House: Feds will step up marijuana law enforcement

Is Trump declaring war on all of us now? It’s happened berore.

“I do believe you will see greater enforcement of it,” White House press secretary Sean Spicer said regarding federal drug laws, which still list marijuana as an illegal substance.

He’s going after marijuana, playing the false opium association card.

Trump is erasing a century’s progress on every front and must be removed.
