MARIJUANA cause brain damage, birth defects and addiction. Baby Boomers who remember the 70's when pot had a THC (potency) content of 1/2%, need to observe that today its 20 to 60 times stronger. We are talking grain alcohol compared to near beer. And the impacts to the body and brain are much more severe.

With all of the propaganda from drug legalizers

Overview

MARIJUANA cause brain damage, birth defects and addiction. Baby Boomers who remember the 70's when pot had a THC (potency) content of 1/2%, need to observe that today its 20 to 60 times stronger. We are talking grain alcohol compared to near beer. And the impacts to the body and brain are much more severe.

With all of the propaganda from drug legalizers like Drug Lord George Soros, America is largely confused about pot. Is it medicine? Are we depriving the chronically ill of the only narcotic that can give them relief? In reality, its not about compassion. Its about money and power, and the fact that people like the intoxicating effects with no knowledge or concern about the inherent damage they inflict on themselves and others.

Its true! Nobody dies of marijuana overdose. But almost all of the 3,200 Americans who die monthly from drug overdose started their journey with pot.

And largely owing to brain imaging technology, we know know that marijuana can actually cause of schizophrenia and paranoia in vulnerable individual, along with other psychotic conditions, such as depression and suicide. Loughner, the Tucson shooter may be a case in point.

The human brain isn't fully developed until age 25, and we now know that marijuana can cause irreversible damage to the brain until it is, particularly during adolescence when marijuana interrupts the development of white and gray matter.

The most critical thing about pot is that it is fat soluble. While one ounce of alcohol can be excreted from the body in 12 hours, it takes 3 to 7 days for the THC content in one joint to leave the body, and up to a month for the balance. In the interim, the THC clogs every cell in the body, and adversely affects every organ. It weakens the immune system by as much as 50%. Because 1/3rd of the 3 lb brain is fat, it loves to reside there, adversely impacting short term memory, diminishing motivation, maturation, academic achievement and productivity.

The other primary depository of THC are the gonads (i.e. sex organs). Marijuana is a cause of testicular cancer in men, but it also escalates the percentage of still births, causes physical defects in newborns, behavioral problems and escalates the probably of certain types of leukemia. It's also mutagenic, which means it can leap over a generation and cause the same defects in one's grandchildren.

Addictive? There are more young people in rehab for addiction to marijuana than all other drugs combined. During Obama's first year in office, the increase in marijuana use went from 15.1 million Americans to 16.7 million (11%). Unfortunately, the two age groups with the highest consumption are 18-25, and 12 to 17 ... both under the threshold of a mature brain.

A major cause of the increase in consumption is the President and Attorney General's edict that the federal government will not enforce federal law in states that have approved "medical" marijuana laws. That edict is not based on scientific evidence, but on the corruptive influence of money. We have the best scientific evidence in the world on the destructive influence of marijuana. The government's most important responsibility is to protect the people, and in spite of the pandemic of 3,200 overdose deaths monthly, 33% high school drop out rate, 5% of the world's population consuming 66% of the world's illicit drugs, et al., the President and Congress have heretofore just ignored the problem.

By destroying our youth, we are destroying our nation. If our government can't muster the wisdom, courage and will to serve the people, then we need to elect a government that will.

Editorial Reviews

Carla Lowe
During the parent movement in the 1980’s, a drug prevention journalist named Peggy Mann scanned the globe, interviewing and reporting on research of the effects of marijuana on the body and brain. First Lady Nancy Reagan championed the cause with her “Just Say No” message. The adverse outcomes from smoking pot were causing more and more problems and there was tremendous curiosity among parents and kids as to what was really going on with this seemingly harmless recreational

This book is full of lies and half truths. Might as well go watch Reefer Madness, you'll get about the same amount of correct information. Don't bother with this book unless you are looking to read some fiction.

Although I find this hilarious, I find it sad that so many lowbrow individuals think marijuana is "bad."

Books like this are a huge reason our young people choose to experiment with drugs. When young people are blatantly lied to about something and realize it they learn to distrust everything else they are told. The real gateway drugs are alcohol, tobacco and caffeine. Alcohol alone kills more people, maims more people and brain damages not only young people but unborn children than marijuana has in its more than 3000 year history. If cigarettes killed instantly instead of gradually they would be pulled from the shelves tomorrow but our government and the companies who run Washington seem okay with a substance that cannot even legally be thrown into a municipal dump for its hazardous materials content. It is painfully clear that this author ignores decades of positive research regarding marijuana. Ingesting just 3 raw potatoes can kill a human, POTATOES people! Keep the lies coming though, you are creating a whole new generation of voters who see through them and WILL legalize marijuana. It's not a matter of if but when.

Factually incorrect on basically everything. I hope people don't think of this trash as real, hard evidence against marijuana. Marijuana has been used for thousands upon thousands of years and can only harm you if you lock yourself in a room and smoke so much you suffocate. Peanuts kill more people annually than maijuana has in all of history!

There are so many flat-out lies in the description of this book, I might just read it to better understand the propaganda that's being put out there by the alcohol and tobacco industries, fans of Big Government , enemies of Liberty and the other funders of the Pro- Marijuana Prohibition camp. Don't believe people who say all conservatives defend marijuana prohibition and are anti-reform. It's just not true at all. Many conservatives have seen the obvious conservative case for ending prohibition for decades now, and some have even led the discussion and the political fight. No, the Pro-prohibition camp likes to make you think all conservatives support prohibition so it will make it seem like they have at least half the country. They don't. Anyway, don't believe a word in the description of this book. It's all crap. Perhaps I'll eventually report back on a review of the actual book, beyond the description and sample.  If the what I've seen is any indication, it should be a real hoot, full of crap, but also potentially enlightening to their strategy for deception.

No one in this day and age can actually expect us to actually believe this garbage. Anyone with any ability to do actual research will recongnize this crap for what it is, propoganda to continue a failed policy of arresting and incarcerating hundreds of thousands of otherwise innocent americans. This crap needs to stop.

I just read the preview and i can tell ya this is a crock of sh*t. Never in my life have I heard such outrageous lies used to brainwash you into thinking marijuana is bad. Wow is all I have to say.

This man is clearly more confused by the media and governmental tactics that are used to keep the information about the medicinal value of cannabis a secret than he claims the majority of his readers are. Have no fears, however - he is one man out of millions of others who know the truth. Don't read, unless you're ready to be bombarded by more ridiculous propaganda and scare tactics spurred by pharmaceutical companies (the majority of whom would lose a huge profit margin upon the legalization of this miraculous plant), or unless you would like to understand more completely how these lies have an effect on the human psyche.

How ignorant can people be....I cannot believe people still have opinions like these while pharmaceutical companies produce damaging and terrible drugs that are considered healthy and acceptable. Ridiculous.

Matijuana cannot kill people as easily as they say in this book. In my state, pot is legal. I am a legal patient under proposition 215. Sure, Marijuana isnt technically good for you, but isnt bad either! You can get lung cancer.. the only reason why is because it is smoke. I kinda regret smoking marijuana, but i only smoke on the weekends to relive stress. Can quit whenever i want, as long as I control how much i smoke and how i smoke it. The water pipe is the healthiest way to smoke it, so thats what i recommend. Be careful with matijuana, when you get high, you will not feel very good the next day and want to sleep all day.

I havent even read this book and I can already tell you that it is complete rubbish. Anybody who believes any of this is truly misinformed. Everybody needs to do their own research.

This is a ploy to confuse, misinform and scare the reader. Don't buy into the blatant lies. If you want an informative read please consider marijuana is safer by steve fox, paul armentano and mason tvert. It's a real eye opener.
