Marijuana Will Hurt You and They Want You to Smoke It

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Describing the Democrat attack on personal responsibility, Dan Henninger gives as examples decriminalization of theft, student loan debt cancelation, welfare without work requirements, red carpet treatment for illegal aliens, and pushing marijuana:

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer of New York issued a statement just before Labor Day in support of the federal decriminalization of marijuana. …

Sen. Schumer’s statement was specifically about a step just taken by the Health and Human Services Department, at Mr. Biden’s request, toward all but eliminating federal penalties for marijuana possession.

At the same time,

Columbia University health researchers released a study that found significantly elevated levels of lead and cadmium in the urine of marijuana users. …

But the chance any such science-based evidence will alter the Biden-Schumer goal of normalizing marijuana use is zero. That’s what is troubling about recent Democratic social-policy decisions: The downside consequences seem irrelevant to them.

These downside consequences go beyond the toxic metals absorbed by the plant:

Researchers from the Aarhus University Hospital in Denmark recently delved into the records of more than 6.6 million people in Denmark born between 1985 and 2021 and found of those with cannabis use disorder – defined as being unable to stop using in spite of it causing damage to their health and social lives – about 41 percent of those individuals were diagnosed with major depression.

They also found chronic marijuana use quadrupled a person’s risk of being diagnosed with bipolar disorder.

High-potency marijuana vapes have been associated with suicide.

Additionally, chronic cannabis use has been known to trigger the onset of schizophrenia and psychotic breaks.

A study published in the May issue of the journal Psychological Medicine found cannabis use disorder was linked to about 30 percent of schizophrenia diagnoses in young Danish men in the year 2021.

Cannabis has medicinal uses, but its recreational use is associated with sleep disorders, pregnancy complications, cardiovascular disease, and birth defects:

An extensive study conducted in Canada found pregnant women who smoke cannabis have a 70 percent higher risk of having a baby with a major birth defect and a 15 percent increased risk of a stillbirth.

Whatever you may have heard, pot is addictive:

New research from University of Washington and Kaiser Permanente Washington Health Research Institute estimates 21 percent of marijuana users had become addicted.

Marijuana smokers are more likely than cigarette smokers to develop lung disease. Yet the same Democrats who have been demonizing cigarettes for decades and taxing them into oblivion support recreational marijuana. Why would that be?

Cigarettes, for all their dangers, sharpen the mind. Marijuana makes you passive and stupid, just the way the Party of Big Government wants you. Biden et al. have no problem aborting viable babies and sexually mutilating children; why would they care about a few toxic metals and birth defects?

On tips from Varla and R F.
