Let’s tackle drugs during domestic violence awareness month

Marijuana-induced psychosis leads to domestic violence

Domestic Violence Awareness month comes around each year in October.   Violence prevention groups would gain ground by targeting drug use and alcohol abuse, which trigger most cases of domestic violence.

Too many people are still deceived by the image of the laid back pot smoker.  A significant subset of stoners become psychotic and violent from using marijuana.   Davie Dauzat, who beheaded his wife on August 25, 2016, told the police it was a  “battle between good and evil.”  He and his wife had smoked pot together before he killed her.  Dauzat  was having the type of psychotic break that overwhelms certain pot users, leading them to commit acts of violence.   A similar event happened to Tyler Denning on March 25, when he jumped from a 4th floor window clutching his son.  He had smoked marijuana that day and claimed that God had made him do it.

We got opioids wrong, but marijuana is worse

By a parent from Colorado

I have spoken to 4 moms in the past 24 hours whose children have died of opioids or heroin overdoses. Each and every one of them started their addiction with marijuana.

Are all of you outraged about the 60 Minutes report on how the pharmaceutical industry and the federal government purposely allowed the opioids crisis to explode?

Well, so am I! It’s shameful!

Gummies in the shape of hearts and stars are still allowed, even though Colorado passed new rules to ban candies in the shape of animals.

Now wait until the marijuana industry comes to your state. They are worse. They make high potency products that have NEVER been tested or studied before. Their products come in deceptive forms to disguise use. They don’t have to list the harms, risks, doses or frequency.  They call smoked marijuana medication, and they are worse than the tobacco industry.  Budtenders act like pharmacists and doctors without the medical degree.  They advertise their products in our local newspaper. They market to our children because they know they need more and future users.

The Latest HIDTA Report

Now in Colorado, they are filling the media with lies since the latest Rocky Mountain HIDTA report came out.  It says that Colorado youth rank #1 in the nation for marijuana use. They are actually claiming that marijuana has decreased the opioid crisis!  If the opioid crisis has decreased, it is because the medical community is becoming more aware and are changing their practices.

What the marijuana industry doesn’t want you to know, is that they have a great relationship with the cartels. They trade their marijuana for the cartels’ heroin. Our opioid use is going down but our heroin use is skyrocketing! Marijuana alone is harmful enough but now the marijuana industry is saying marijuana is a cure for opioids addiction. What a total lie!

What about those 4 women whose children died? Their children tried to get off heroin by using marijuana! It doesn’t work.  These children died and these parents are speaking out, but who is listening!?

Editor’s Note: A year ago, Pueblo, Colorado, physicians explained the drug crisis in videos.

My Son’s Psychiatric Surprise

The truth of deaths caused by marijuana overdose

Dean Whitlock refutes a claim that no one dies of marijuana overdose, in a section of his article, published by Vermont Digger, October 16, 2017.

“No One Has Died of an Overdose”

This remains the most outrageous claim of the pro-legalization movement. It is not only dangerously misleading, it is a slap in the face to the families who have lost children, spouses and parents.

Everyone admits that people are dying in traffic crashes because of stoned drivers, and that some people Continue reading

Teens, college students, young adults add Xanax to their marijuana

For teens and college students, it’s a trend to add Xanax to their marijuana.  Xanax is an anti-anxiety medication classified as a benzodiazapine. Some who use Xanax have real anxiety.  Because “medical” marijuana activists advertise marijuana as a treatment for anxiety, some people use marijuana to deal with anxiety. Continue reading
