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.

Again and again British politicians, commentators, and celebrities intone that ´´the war on drugs has failed´´. They then say this is an argument for abandoning all attempts to reduce drug use through the criminal law. Peter Hitchens shows that in Britain, there has been no serious war on drugs since 1971, when a Tory government adopted a Labour plan to implement the revolutionary Wootton report. This gave cannabis, the most widely used illegal substance, a special legal status as a supposedly ´´soft´´ drug (in fact, Hitchens argues, it is at least as dangerous as heroin and cocaine because of the threat it poses to mental health). It began a progressive reduction of penalties for possession and effectively disarmed the police. This process still continues behind a screen of falsely tough rhetoric from politicians. Far from there being a war on drugs, there has been a covert surrender to drugs, concealed behind an official obeisance to international treaty obligations. For all intents and purposes, cannabis is legal in Britain, and other major drugs are not far behind. In The War We Never Fought, Hitchens uncovers the secret history of the government´s true attitude and the increasing recruitment of the police and courts to covert decriminalization initiatives and contrasts it with the rhetoric. Whatever and whoever is to blame for the undoubted mess of Britain´s drug policy, it is not prohibition or a war on drugs, for neither exists. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Peter Hitchens.

You´re about to discover how to overcome the challenges of dual diagnosis. Dual diagnosis is a common phenomenon affecting the modern-day societies of the world. What is really responsible for it? There are a few reasons why many societies are witnessing the problem. But what is the meaning of dual diagnosis? How do we deal with the challenges associated with dual diagnosis? To start with, dual diagnosis can be referred to as a condition that brings about the simultaneous existence of two mental illnesses at the same time, a problem that assumes a dual nature. This condition appears to be something that can further lead to a more heterogeneous problem. However, the issue has led to many debates whether it is possible for someone to suffer dual problems and yet still be refer to them as a single problem. Experience has shown that it is very possible for an individual to suffer problems that assume a dual nature. For example we have dual diagnosis manifesting in critical conditions like alcoholism and depression. This is a very good example of a problem that has to do with dual diagnosis. The issue can also be seen in more serious mental illnesses, like schizophrenia and psychosis. It can also manifest in conditions that have to do with substance misuse when it leads to the development of certain disorders, for instance when an individual overuses cannabis. Other forms of disorders that can lead to dual diagnosis problems are panic disorders, generalized anxiety disorders, and overdependence on drugs. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Cathy Beard.

Lisa Jakub has always been a little weird. Sensitive. Emotional. Introverted. What else would you expect from a former child actor turned writer? But the issue wasn´t just an artistic temperament; Lisa was constantly trying to hide her debilitating anxiety and depression. She assumed that retiring from her 18-year acting career and leaving Hollywood was going to be the cure for all of her issues. Guess how that worked out? Lisa was still having three panic attacks a day and found it hard to leave her house. But when anxiety-induced vomiting claimed the life of her iPod - she knew it was time to get help. It was time to talk about the things that are hard to talk about. She started to embrace her weird. In searching for a deeper understanding of mental wellness, Lisa explored her own history and reached out to others to learn how anxiety and depression impacted their lives. She interviewed veterans with PTSD and 10-year-olds with sensory integration issues, people with eating disorders and cutting habits, those whose lives were saved by medication and those who found yoga to be the answer. She went to Colorado to learn about the effects of cannabis on anxiety, and attended a meditation retreat in North Carolina to sit quietly for hours and hours and hours in ´´noble silence´´. Without a phone. Not Just Me is a hopeful, entertaining, enlightening look at the root causes of anxiety, the latest research on mood disorders, and ideas for how we can all live authentically with more peace, power, and purpose. Part memoir, part journalistic exploration - this book reminds all of us that we are not alone. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Lisa Jakub.
