  1. Cannabis doesn't cause mental illness, it intensifies it. People who become schizophrenic by usage of marijuana already had a genetic predisposition to schizophrenia.thats why 99% of people who use it don't develope schizophrenia because the majority of people aren't genetically vulnerable to mental illness. I will have to say that weed does effect your emotions but from my personal experience its something that you let happen to yourself. Ive been addicted to weed and was able to quit and what ive seen is that the more you think about it, the more real the withdrawals become. Its a mindset and a person who has an underlying mental illness which hasn't been developed yet will have a greater chance of developing if they use weed.

  2. to say it’s a fact there hast to be an actual study. Can’t just go around saying it’s a fact when you have nothing to back you up you’re supposed to be fucking congressman you sound like dumb children bored you know the nearest thing somebody said to you

  3. Berenson attempts to back up these stories with a few studies on marijuana and violence. It’s true that some individual studies have found a link, although many conflicting studies have not. This is why it’s better, when evaluating data, to rely on large, rigorous reviews of the evidence.

    Such a review exists: In 2013, one was conducted by the RAND Drug Policy Research Center, commissioned by the Office of National Drug Control Policy. It concluded that “marijuana use does not induce violent crime, and the links between marijuana use and property crime are thin.”

  4. Mr. Berenson's wife is a forensic psychiatrist who has worked for years with the criminally insane. She says they all use marijuana. This guy knows what he is talking about and the National Academy of Medicine backs him up.

  5. Get off your high horse. Organizations that Lobby to forbid substances and putting people in prison for decades are people like you responsible you are responsible for the deaths of thousands of hundreds of thousands of people in Mexico and much of Latin America because you deem War on Drugs is just which it is not a kills many innocent people these are the same organizations that support endless wars in the Middle East. The reason why you want to take away marijuana is because people are starting to wake up about your lies.

  6. Dude did you even talk to someone who uses drugs or has used? Bro you dont know shit about weed or any other drug for that matter. Your just as bad as the first drug zar

  7. The only mental illness, is the gentleman that thinks that this is problem. When their is no problem but cigarettes 🚬 are more of killer than you think and this totally negative 👎 message sending to Americans is waste of time. Just to sell your image, books and corrupt viewers. When I can’t stand the smell of cigarettes 🚬 lol grow the fuck up and stop trying to force authorities on others.

  8. Based on these comments it's safe to say the vast majority of you have zero education on cannabis or anything surrounding it. You're just like me, grew up being told it was bad and everyone that did it was a nobody. Its 2019 people. The entire nation is about to be up in cannabis culture. Its gonna be great making so much money off your friends and families while you sit back and finally shut the fuck up.

  9. This guy is a hero. My life has been completely destroyed by extreme anxiety caused by a couple experiences with this (literally 5 inhales). About fucking time. Everyone, everyone, everyone in mental health knows!!!!

  10. In a society that condones the wholesale slaughter of unborn Children; I doubt there'll be many concerned with what detrimental effects marijuana might have on Children. We are a Relativist society.

  11. I'm a cannabis user.
    This is the most unbiased interview about cannabis I've ever seen. From the comments I've read below sounds as if the pro weed folks have missed beresons point. He's simply stating cannabis isn't for everyone, and be careful if you use it.
    I agree with his views on bandwagon media issues. Sadly cannabis has become one of them.
    Just wanted to add, I don't think we can ever make a conclusion weather drugs cause psychosis or psychosis cause drug use. Maybe it depends entirely on who is using drugs and how they used them. If so the correlation causation argument is irrelevant.

  12. I am 62 and have a severe spinal cord injury that cannot be fixed. My spinal cord is pinched at my brain stem, and I ruptured and bulging C2-3-4-5-6….
    I was on Pain Pills and Anti Spasm meds for 8 years…. I did real good on them and if I didn't need them, I didn't use them….Then one day here comes Big Pharma and the Darvocet I had been taking they decided was too dangerous, and now only drugs like Viocodin and Saboxone or Methadone would be the only pain meds available to me….
    The excuse they used to take the Darvocet off the market was that it raised the liver enzymes to high… Well I did my own research from their studies… Those SSRI drugs they prescribe like candy, well they raise the liver enzymes 3x higher than the darvocet ever did….But they took it off the market using that as an excuse…..After searching for the real reason I found that Darcvocet was the only successful pain pill that had no addiction issues ..But the Patent was expired…You could get 100 for less than $10.00 …..Where the viocodin was a lot more money, and the methadone and saboxone was hundreds of dollars, and those drugs were so addictive, usually by day 3 taken by doctors direction you would be addicted in 3 days and suffer withdraw … Well I wanted nothing to do with that…..So I suffered and suffered and so many sleepless nights or with only 2 or 3 hours…I was a wreck…..My doctor kept trying to get me to try Medical Marijuana for 4 years…I declined in fear that it was worse than Heroin cause that is what the TV always portrayed it that way…
    4 years later I finally gave in and got the Medical Marijuana….I was very surprised at how well it did…and no addiction issues…..I have been using it now for 6 years…The longest I have gone without it was 6 weeks, until I need it……
    I can honestly say, Medical Marijuana should be available in all states. On the other hand, I do not think it is a Recreational Drug. But then I think alcohol is a drug too…
    Like I said I am 62, and I never met a violent Marijuana user in my life. Actually they were lazy as hell.
    If you get violent on Marijuana, you have to already have a mental problem or taking other drugs with it. I grew up in the Hippie Generation . Most all my friends used marijuana, I was kind of an outcast, cause I didn''t use it. I tried it once at a party when I was 16, and stared at a light bulb for 4 hours, I said never again. Medical Marijuana should be legal Federally. But Not Recreational… And don't allow Big Pharma to get their hands on it… Here in Michigan before the politicians got a hold of it…We had licensed growers, and all patients had a medical marijuana card and you would find a grower who would grow your plants for you, and give you your allotment per month free, and then sell the remainder to the Dispensaries who also only sold to Licensed Patients …Now that the Politicians got their hands all over it, they want their cut, you know…? Now people like me cannot get Medical Marijuana cause we cannot afford it….Now that it is recreational in Michigan, only those who have lots of money can afford it….And they are collaborating with Big Pharma to push Big Pharma Marijuana……Don't ever allow big pharma to get their hands on it, or the politicians.

  13. "Cannabis doesnt really work as a painkiller" – It does. Cannabis doesn't cure, but it's an effective bandaid, example would be people who have serious menstrual pains on which non of medication prescribed by doctors worked.

  14. Well here's my take on this topic, marijuana is not the drug they've tried to say it is since they made it illegal, never should have been illegal and of all the substances out there including alcohol ( which may be the worst and it's legal) is the least harmful by a long shot. Marijuana has some healing factors and has been proven to help ppl in some ways. Just like with alcohol prohibition and how it was used as a medical treatment back then, in which it has some factors as well for taking away pain but it sounds silly saying I use alcohol for medical reasons don't it? It will be the same for weed in the future. We will be laughed at because it was illegal in the first place and ppl in the future will say wow those ppl were dumb as fk. That is if we make it there and by the looks of things we won't be smarter in the future, we'll be dumber, really just look at what we do now, they are trying to say gender doesn't matter with men dressed as women breaking woman's records, could go on and on with the ridiculous things that go on these days but that says enough
