Weedweek’s Alex Halperin has a look at some of the polarizing claims, FUD, in the bestselling anti-marijuana book “Tell Your Children, The Truth about Marijuana, Mental Illness, and Violence” by former New York Times reporter Alex Berenson.
”According to Berenson, “the great majority” of teenagers who smoke weed will not be affected by psychosis. But young people who are at greatest risk deserve the best available information. By describing numerous psychotic breakdowns in excruciating detail, the book’s scare tactics could save a few lives. Berenson is also not the first person to soundly argue that the high-potency pot products available now are likely to make the problem worse.
Halperin, a well-known legal marijuana advocate, takes no prisoners in his essay. We recommend everyone to read the complete essay over at the Guardian
