    Contrary to the image of potheads as peaceful stoners, “cannabis-dependent psychotic patients were four times as likely to be violent,” Alex Berenson writes in his magnificent new book, Tell Your Children: The Truth About Marijuana, Mental Illness, and Violence. “No other factor was nearly as important. Alcohol use, which was common among the patients, made no difference.”

    So where are all the marijuana-induced murders?

    As Berenson says, they’re hiding in plain sight. But until you’re told about the cannabis-psychosis link, you don’t even notice. Crime reporters don’t want to look uncool by asking about the perp’s marijuana use, and, inasmuch as being high isn’t a legal defense, neither prosecutors nor defense lawyers have an incentive to request that suspects be tested for pot.

    At the end of his book, Berenson runs through a slew of depraved murders, inexplicably gruesome — until you find out the perpetrators were high on marijuana. None of these were reported as cannabis-induced homicides.

    I'm sure he based this book on his vast medical or legal experience. Wait, what do you mean he's a journalist and novelist with no medical or law enforcement experience?

    It has been shown in many studies that people with psychosis or in the schizo spectrum can have negative reactions to marijuana. I saw several posts about this on a mental health forum before. It is very rare that is causes psychosis or issues in those without these disorders already existing in some form, but it can heighten psychosis or side effects if you already have these disorders.

    Marijuana Worsens Schizophrenia

    And according to WebMD

    The Schizophrenia Connection
    The link between marijuana and psychosis goes beyond a short-lived high. If you already have schizophrenia and use the drug, your symptoms may get worse. You may have more psychotic episodes and spend more time in the hospital.

    MJ is one of satans tools to take the human race away from Christ by altering the mind.
