Reveals the link between teenage marijuana use and mental illness, and a hidden epidemic of violence caused by the drug--facts that the author believes have been ignored as the U.S. rushes to legalize cannabis.
An eye-opening report from an award-winning author and former New York Times reporter reveals the link between teenage marijuana use and mental illness, and a hidden epidemic of violence caused by the drug - facts the media has ignored as the US rushes to legalize cannabis.Recreational marijuana is now legal in nine states. Almost all Americans believe the drug should be legal for medical use. Advocates argue cannabis can help everyone from veterans to cancer sufferers. But legalization has been built on myths - that marijuana arrests fill prisons; that most doctors want to use cannabis as medicine; that it can somehow stem the opiate epidemic; that it is not just harmless but beneficial for mental health. In this meticulously reported audiobook, Alex Berenson, a former New York Times reporter, explodes those myths:Almost no one is in prison for marijuana;A tiny fraction of doctors write most authorizations for medical marijuana, mostly for people who have already used;Marijuana use is linked to opiate and cocaine use. Since 2008, the US and Canada have seen soaring marijuana use and an opiate epidemic. Britain has falling marijuana use and no epidemic;Most of all, THC - the chemical in marijuana responsible for the drug’s high - can cause psychotic episodes. After decades of studies, scientists no longer seriously debate if marijuana causes psychosis.Psychosis brings violence, and cannabis-linked violence is spreading. In the four states that first legalized, murders have risen 25 percent since legalization, even more than the recent national increase. In Uruguay, which allowed retail sales in July 2017, murders have soared this year.Berenson’s reporting ranges from the London institute that is home to the scientists who helped prove the cannabis-psychosis link to the Colorado prison where a man now serves a 30-year sentence after eating a THC-laced candy bar and killing h 1.

He met bush doctors, Rasta preachers, members of the Marley family, and respected elders who knew Marcus Garvey, prophet of the Rasta movement and vocal proponent of the Pan-African movement in America. He also met elders who were present when Haile Selassie I, emperor of Ethiopia and descendant of the House of David, came to Jamaica in the 1960s. Through interviews with fishermen, mystics, and wise men, as well as direct encounters with spirits and the spiritual, the author reveals the deep wisdom that underlies the ´´old ways” of the Rastas.

A parable about a hapless dad whose life changes when he discovers the wonders of CBD, written in the style of the classic children´s book CDB! (1968). Both a parodic children´s book and a ´´puzzle book,´´ it will delight CBD users, irreverent parents, and anyone curious about or appalled by wellness. CBD: you can´t escape the cannabis derivative. Cannabidiol is an omnipresent cureall that has gone from being ´´voguish´´ to ´´a mainstream panacea,´´ as the New York Times observed (´´Why Is CBD Everywhere?´´ Oct. 27, 2018). And it´s a particular favorite of the stroller-pushing crowd endemic to chic-er areas of New York, the Bay Area and other similar urban environs. Comedic and light-hearted, Amy Sohn´s CBD! pokes fun at the national obsession with CBD as well as the legalization of marijuana in many states in America. Though not appropriate for kids (except for really smart and transgressive ones ones), this parody will appeal particularly to parents who have read William Steig´s beloved classic CDB! to their kids, or to those Gen X-ers and Boomers who remember it from their own childhood or parenthood. Praise for Amy Sohn : ´´A little-known event that took place around the time that Richard M. Nixon was resigning as President was the birth of Amy Sohn. . . . Ms. Sohn has emerged as a representative of her generation...´´ - The New York Times
