Cannabis-related psychosis, addiction, ER visits
Not long ago when Joseph Garbely, chief medical officer for the Caron Foundation, reviewed younger patients starting drug or alcohol treatment on his unit, he usually saw people shaking, sick, and seizing from alcohol or opioid withdrawal. Marijuana was seldom what put them in those medical beds.

“A few years ago, it was rare to see a young person enter Caron with marijuana-induced psychosis,” said Garbely. “Now we see it on a regular basis. Older teens and young adults — approximately ages 18 to 26 — are the most impacted. We see a significant misperception about the safety and efficacy of marijuana among our teen and young-adult patient population.”

Marijuana, legal for medical uses in well over half the states in the country and as a recreational substance in ever more states, is generating increasing concern as a dependency-causing drug capable of serious impairment and harm, ...

Talk about being a wayfaring stranger and pilgrim in the midst of a crazy land of lunatic weed smokers. Be filled with the Spirit, not mind altering drugs and drinks!

Well, as to the questions Gay so hilariously questioned, my qualifications are that in the eighties, I did my college internship at a drug and alcohol rehabilitation center . I saw firsthand addicts and drunkard struggle and depending on their addiction, succeed. However, put a needle in your arm and you’re probably going to have a harder time being clean because heroine is a different animal.
From the 80’s to 2000’, I was case manager for Texas MHMR. So, I’m not an expert, I just got paid to find housing, jobs and medical care for the homeless, intellectually disabled, physically handicapped and drug addicts whose brains were pudding from years of abuse.
For the last 20 years, I have taught disabled young adults and children.
And this I do know, the marijuana made today is genetically engineered to become addictive and rewires the brain chemistry to cause psychosis. I’ve seen it happen, but try telling people who smoke weed that and they’ll just get mad and act like my 87 year old drunk uncle, ticked off, all about themselves and a absolute fool in the eyes of God and their mama.

I used to smoke weed, too, and I can’t tell any difference in my mental capacity. Wait—what was I saying?

BTW, Gay M Allen, if you are going by your own memory or relying on your own mental ability in your last statement, I have good reason to question your point. I have also spent a lot of time with people who chain smoked African marijuana so I know what it does to the brain. I have not smoked it myself though.

By the Grace of God I have never used "recreational" drugs ever in my life.
Praise the Lord.

"How can recreational drugs affect mental health?

All drugs have some kind of effect on your mental health. They affect the way you see things, your mood and your behaviour.

These effects may:

be pleasant or unpleasant
be short-lived or longer-lasting
be similar to those you experience as part of a mental health problem
go away once the drug has worn off
continue once the drug has worn off
For some people, taking drugs can lead to long-term mental health problems, such as depression or schizophrenia." (Mind)

how does working with the handicapped qualify you to speak of Marijuana? when people like me who have smoked since 3rd grade have found the real truth in Jesus and have more sense than to be allied to a fallen away apostate church and give my money to a pastor who will welcome unrepentant sodomites and is full of wolves in sheep's clothing?
how does that make you smarter than me? and yes i have smoked the black Lebanese which makes you weak in the knees, the panama red which makes you loose your head, and the sticky Thai which they actually tie to sticks, i have tripped on window pane, mushrooms, belladonna, wild lettuce found in the back yard, cough syrup,coke, whatever i could get my hands on, i even huffed whipped cream cartridges to get high on the nitrous, and i will tell you, my memory is coming back, my health is back, im out of the crucible of purifying fire and im not a retard from all my drug abuse and using my head as a battering ram, you sir are a dullard or a disinformation shill

wayfarer speak English much?
why is your paragraph unintelligible?

As a guy who applied and worked with the intellectually disabled children to adults, marijuana makes you slower, forgetful and have the personality of a tree stump. Do not smoke this Chinese hybrid brain rot or listen to politicians who know , a tree stump is easily persuaded to climb on a rail car to their own doom.
