But he turned, and said unto Peter, Get thee behind me, Satan: thou art an offence unto me: for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but those that be of men. ~Matthew 16:23

Colorado Doctor Sounds Alarm on Marijuana Legalization

Posted: 2019-09-08

In short, recreational Marijuana use is NOT HEALTHY:

Colorado's experiment with marijuana legalization has been an epic disaster, according to one doctor seeing its effects on the front lines.

Dr. Karen Randall, an emergency room physician certified in "cannabis science and medicine," said the legalization of marijuana has damaged, rather than helped, her home state. Randall said the public is being misled about the effects of recreational marijuana.

Key Points:

The Centennial State is often pointed to as a success story with more than $1 billion in tax revenues generated since legalization. 

Eight more states followed in approving recreational use.

The average joint in Colorado, she says, now contains 20 milligrams of THC, 10 times as much as the average joint at Woodstock. 

 Concentrated products, sometimes called "shatter," can be up to 99 percent THC.

 One recent study found a three-fold increase in marijuana-related admissions in the aftermath of legalization.

While the country has plowed ahead with marijuana legalization, less attention has been paid to potential downsides of the weed market.

The U.S. surgeon general warned that chronic teen marijuana use negatively affects IQ, school performance, and is even linked to psychotic disorders including schizophrenia.

Randall pointed to other commonly cited effects of legalization, including a historic increase in homelessness and a growing population of chronic, marijuana-dependent users. All of these, she suggested, have gone unreported in spite of the toll they are taking on her community.
