This is a commentary which recently appeared in the Miami Herald, written by Dr. Stephen McLeod-Bryant, a clinical associate professor in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences at the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine. It’s so important, we need to circulate wide & far. It tells the story of a college student whose marijuana use led to serious mental illness. The bipartisan members of Congress should watch this video, read this article. Public policy makers need to understand what state of mind this young man was left in because of his college exposure to pot & ask themselves if their quest to legalize is really worth the loss of Diego’s mind? We can’t entrust the brains of our youth to an industry that profits from an addicting substance.
It seems the video inserted in this article (see below) promotes legalization of marijuana, but to Moms Strong, the words from the Surgeon General, Attorney General Sessions & even Donald Trump who candidly talks about Colorado’s “many problems” says legalization may not be so wise.
Read this important story
Diego was a 20-year-old college junior who was brought to the emergency room by the police. They were called by his resident advisor for bizarre behavior in the dormitory. Diego was anxious, frequently glancing around the room, and talked in a disorganized manner about the Illuminati, Freemasons and the end of the world.
Please share this post with your representatives in your state and federal legislature. Demand they consider the psychosis-marijuana connection before they vote to legalize and commercialize marijuana.
