This video tells the story of the effects of Marijuana legalization in Colorado.  They cover pretty much every aspect of how the legalization of this drugs has affected things like general drug use, crime, education, drug cartels/illegal drugs, DUI, and the indigent population. And the effects of these things on the economy.

The website is packed with good information on the effects of marijuana on our society.

Here is a great article by Dr Robert Berezin on Psychiatry's fraudulent diagnosing of biological diseases.  

Psychiatric Diagnosis is a Fraud: The Destructive and Damaging Fiction of Biological ‘Diseases’

An excerpt: 

"The specious enterprise of healing ‘brain diseases’ is based on a faulty understanding of neuroscience and the brain. The biological orientation has mistaken parts of the brain for the whole. Separate elements of the brain operate mechanically, and are not the cause of psychiatric symptoms. The parts all work in concert to create the Play of Consciousness."

Is Medical Marijuana Beneficial?

Is Medical Marijuana Beneficial?

Is Medical Marijuana Beneficial?

An article from the Periodical: Canadian Family Physician: The Official Journal of the College of Family Physicians of Canada

The title of this research article is: “Simplified guideline for prescribing medical cannabinoids in primary care”  Vol. 64, Issue 2 - 1 Feb 2018

The study looked at the efficacy of cannabinoids for use with pain, nausea and vomiting, spasticity, and adverse event.  This is a thorough study with recommendations when and when not to use medical marijuana.  Extensive references.

The first ‘General recommendation’ is:

“We recommend against use of medical cannabinoids for most medical conditions owing to lack of evidence of benefit and known harms (strong recommendation)”

“Although advocated for various medical conditions, the evidence for medical cannabinoids for most conditions is sparse.”

The authors of the article investigated what research has been done in the USA and Canada on whether cannabinoids are beneficial or not for various medical conditions such as Neuropathic pain, pain, cancer and palliative pain, nausea and vomiting, chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting, spasticity, amongst others.

There are detailed results but: “Although advocated for various medical conditions, the evidence for medical cannabinoids for most conditions is sparse.” From far too small a group to show any more than minimal beneficial test results.  

“While mental health concerns are a common reason for medical marijuana use, the evidence is very poor.” For some mental health issues such as depression, there were no more than 9-10 patients studied with some only subjective results cited.  

Per this research article, what little testing is done on the benefits of marijuana are done with THC levels s 

Canadian study found that functional status among medical marijuana users was worse than among the general population, reporting scores of 28 versus 7 on functional assessment, respectively (using the World Health Organization Disability Assessment Schedule for which possible scores range from 0 to 100, with higher scores representing worse function).”

The article stresses that although marijuana (medical marijuana) has been promoted for and used for many different physical and mental issues, there is a serious lack of high-level (quality) research.  

One of the key recommendation is that patients, even in palliative care should be fully educated on the lack of proven benefits and possible harm that medical marijuana could do.

Tylenol and Opioids

Tylenol and Opioids

Tylenol and Opioids

Is Tylenol leading us into an Opioid epidemic?

We had a surprise answer to one of our questions at a recent Drug Education lecture.  We lecture Junior and High School children on drugs.  We cover drugs in general but do spend a bit of time on alcohol and marijuana.  Alcohol because it destroys so many lives and marijuana because it is becoming and has become legal in many areas.  And is no less dangerous because of it.  

We also explain opioids, from morphine to oxycodone to Fentanyl and Carfentanil.  One of the key things that a lot of kids don’t know or understand is that opioids are pain killers. And as such are very effective. Tylenol is also a pain killer.

If you want a decent article describing Fentanyl and Carfentanil, what they are, comparisons and dangers, check out The Cabin Group 

One of the questions that we sometimes ask the kids is to name some ‘safe’ drugs.  Tylenol comes up pretty consistently.  Our point in the lecture is to make sure that the students know that even prescribed, medical drugs can be used incorrectly and create an overdose.  

Per Tylenol (acetaminophen) is a pain reliever and fever reducer.  Used to treat “headaches, muscle aches, arthritis, backache, tooth aches, colds, and fevers.”  Acetaminophen is also in other pain relief drugs such as Vicodin and Percocet.  Percocet for one, is extremely addictive.  

The Question:

We  don’t always ask this question but it seemed pertinent so we asked for a show of hands of how many in this class had taken Tylenol.  Almost 100% of the students put up their hands.  To me, this was a bit of a shock.

Now, I’ve spoken to numerous people that grew up in the 50s, 60s and 70s.  The ‘go to’ drug after one got their tonsils removed was ice cream.  If you broke your arm, you might have been knocked out while it was being set by the doctor, but then you were told that it would likely hurt a bit when it was healing.  Most parents in the 50s and 60s may have had some aspirin in the medicine cabinet and some band aids.  My parents were a doctor and a nurse and they were hesitant to even give us that (aspirin).  The standard fix for a fall, bump or scrape was ‘kiss it better’ and ‘get back on the horse’.  

For a fever, it was a hot bath.  If you want to know why you should NOT use Tylenol for your child’s fever, and why a bath would be better, check out this page on The Healthy Home Economist 

Two things come to mind with this ease of dispensing drugs to children for every runny nose or scraped shin.  One, these small bodies are not built to handle the volume of drugs that are currently poured into them. 

"Acetaminophen poisoning has become the leading cause of acute liver failure in the United States," report the authors of a new study in the December 2005 issue of Hepatology, the official journal of the American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases (AASLD). Tylenol is the leading brand name for acetaminophen.

(The site with the above quote also gives some alternatives to toxic drugs like Tylenol:  Rejuvenation Science

The liver cleans out the toxins from our bodies. Overworked and weakened at a young age is going to affect a person’s immune system.  If you don’t mind an extremely technical article, (you may have to look up a lot of words), here is one that explains how a weakened liver can result in poor immune response to disease.  Science Direct

And as noted in the Healthy Home Economist page above:

“… reaching for the Tylenol or ibuprofen to suppress what is actually one of the body’s most important defensive reactions to a pathogen. In some cases, caregivers may erroneously believe that reducing the fever somehow makes the child well again, sending him/her to school or an important sporting event rather than to bed for as long as it takes for the fever to resolve itself naturally.

  Suppression of one of Mother Nature’s most important protective and detoxifying mechanisms is harmful to the child both in the short term and the long term.

  In the short term, fever suppression actually opens the door to a secondary infection and the likely need for antibiotics to resolve the illness. In other words, if you want to avoid antibiotics, don’t bring down the fever. The heat of the fever significantly slows the speed with which a pathogen can replicate and spread, thus giving the body more time to resolve the problem naturally.”

Secondly, and this is equally important, it can easily put the young person in the frame of mind where he or she would turn to a drug as a solution to any sort of problem, physical or emotional.  Over the last twenty, thirty years or so, pain, a symptom, has become something that one treats instead of finding and treating the actual cause.  Often masking or exacerbating the issue.  There are all kinds of natural treatments for inflammation for example.  But even with that, what is causing the inflammation.  But this doesn’t get resolved if a person is trained at an early age to pop a pill for a quick fix.  

A sad thing about this is that doctors are now pretty much trained to take this route.  Doctors have become pill dispensers, treating symptoms and rarely do you find a physician that will take the time to find the underlying cause.  

Take this a step further to the damage that could be caused with regard to emotional and mental issues.  If the whole ‘pop a pill’ solution transfers over to emotional issues then no one may ever have to feel anything again.  As the fellow said, you still have the problems when you stop taking the drugs. 

Opioids, pain killers, are horribly addictive.  Over the counter products like Tylenol don’t have the quantities to be terribly addictive but if your goal is to become addicted to something like oxycodone, well, it is a natural progression.  

So, please look at your life and see if you are conditioning your children to look for the quick solution of a drug, or are you teaching and training them to solve life’s issues, whether physical, mental or emotional.

No Chemical Imbalance

No Chemical Imbalance

No Such Thing As Chemical Imbalance!

It has been proven hundreds of times over that there is no test for a chemical imbalance in the brain.  Every once in a while some article will suggest that scientists are on the cusp of discovering one to give some credibility but to date there is no such test.


Psychologist Bruce Levine, Ph.D., concurs: “Remember that no biochemical, neurological, or genetic markers have been found for attention deficit disorder, oppositional defiant disorder, depression, schizophrenia, anxiety, compulsive alcohol and drug abuse, overeating, gambling, or any other so‐called mental illness, disease, or disorder.”

The War On Drugs

The War On Drugs

The War On Drugs – Legal and Illegal

There is no question that there is a drug epidemic in North America.  Whether it be opioids, pharmaceuticals, marijuana or still one of the worst, alcohol.

There is a law in the universe that you tend to get what you put your attention on.  Someone reading the newspapers, watching the news on TV and listening to it on the radio will generally only see bad things in the world or see it in a bad way.  

Police put their attention on crime and they get more crime.  

A project was initiated some years ago in Iceland to counter the alcohol/drug problems they had in that country.  Being as isolated as it is and having a smaller population and a central government, a somewhat benevolent government, they were able to successfully implement this program.  The resulting statistics are more than impressive. 

They had the parents, school boards and the government at high levels all on board and in agreement on what should happen.  Very tricky at the best of times.  There are things that were implemented that would get screamed down in countries like the United States of America.  But I would like to think and hope that people would come up with alternative solutions so that a program like this would still come to fruition.  

All a statement like, “That wouldn’t work here.” does, is keeping kids on drugs and alcohol.  There is always a solution, always a way to sort things.  


The best article that I could find outlining how this whole  program was initiated and implemented in Iceland is from The Atlantic 

One of the key people that was behind the program was Inga Dóra Sigfúsdóttir.

First off they surveyed.The children/teens.  When countries ask them for help implementing a similar program the first thing is always a survey.  Not all situations are exactly the same.  

Here are some of the survey questions that were asked: 

“Have you ever tried alcohol? If so, when did you last have a drink? Have you ever been drunk? Have you tried cigarettes? If so, how often do you smoke? How much time to you spend with your parents? Do you have a close relationship with your parents? What kind of activities do you take part in?”

And here are some of the results of these surveys:

“The results of these surveys were alarming. Nationally, almost 25 percent were smoking every day, over 40 percent had got drunk in the past month. But when the team drilled right down into the data, they could identify precisely which schools had the worst problems—and which had the least. Their analysis revealed clear differences between the lives of kids who took up drinking, smoking and other drugs, and those who didn’t. A few factors emerged as strongly protective: participation in organized activities—especially sport—three or four times a week, total time spent with parents during the week, feeling cared about at school, and not being outdoors in the late evenings.”

My observation through life and watching kids in public school, private school or home school, is that the most important thing is parent involvement.  There is a stupid idea that one would spend ‘quality time’ with their children.  One for one, whichever type of schooling, as above, when the parents spent time with the kids and were involved their lives and schooling, the kids were fine.  Rarely would they become involved in drugs or alcohol.  

Some of the place where Iceland tried to export this program were unsuccessful because the program directors could not get the parents involved.  They just didn’t care enough.  

I have run into this doing Drug Education Lectures at public schools.  We have students, ten years old, that feel they are trapped.  They don’t want to do drugs, but their parents and often older siblings smoke pot.  It’s pretty sad.  

Iceland strengthened tobacco and alcohol laws but the most important thing they did, in my opinion (based on my experience and my own surveys), is this:

“Links between parents and school were strengthened through parental organizations which by law had to be established in every school, along with school councils with parent representatives. Parents were encouraged to attend talks on the importance of spending a quantity of time with their children rather than occasional “quality time”, on talking to their kids about their lives, on knowing who their kids were friends with, and on keeping their children home in the evenings.”

Again, this won’t work in areas where parents are setting an example of using drugs or alcohol.  Parents also have to be willing and able to spend time with their children.  The sit down family dinner is one of the most important activities for creating a strong growing family.

An acquaintance of mine, a man I’ve known for a few years knows that I work in drug education and fairly recently had some problems with his son.  This fellow has been smoking pot since he was 12.  He is now around 40 and starting to have some physical issues.  He came to me upset as his son was sent home from school earlier that day on some drug (marijuana) related problems.  He was asking for help for his son.  My heart went out to him, no one wishes this kind of thing for their kids.  I didn’t think it was an appropriate moment to suggest that he start setting a different sort of example.  When drugs become the ‘go to’ solution for every problem physical or emotional, for you, then your children observing this reaction to the issues of life, and with the fact that they generally will learn by mimicry,… well, not much you can do. The 'do as I say not as I do' sort of thing, just doesn't work.  

One parent active in the Iceland movement, said that he had a house full of instruments that he was trying to get his kids involved with and they ended up,
both sons, in soccer.  Both received scholarships in the USA to play at Universities.

There is always a solution for any problem.  

We have great success doing the drug education lectures with the younger kids that have not started doing drugs yet.  Most of them get it.  But if you want to keep your children from doing drugs or alcohol, then you may need to run a little interference at home.  

  1. Spend more time with them. 
  2. Do things with them. 
  3. Do things as a family.
  4. Find families to do things with that have similar goals.  Do things with these families.
  5. Try different activities for your kids to get involved in. Could be sports, could be music, theatre, making movies, photography… some children will get fascinated with things mechanical.  Make sure they give anything they try a chance though.  
  6. Keep them busy in the evenings.
  7. Be involved in how they are doing with schoolwork.
  8. Make sure you know how they are getting along with other kids.
  9. Make sure that when you are trying to ‘fix’ a problem they might be having, work on the positive aspect.  You will get what you put your attention on.  

I think that last point is the key.  Put your attention on the positive.  It would be great if we could take half the police force and get them helping create activities for
kids.  I’d be willing to bet that would do more than them concentrating on criminals.

I recently read a quote by Don Winslow, the author of ‘The Force’: 

“Fifty years and a trillion dollars after we declared the war on drugs, drugs are now more prevalent, cheaper, and more potent than ever before.  If this is victory, I’d hate to see defeat.”

You get what you put your attention on.

Maybe if the concentration in the USA had been on educating kids and keeping them involved in extra- curricular activities as above, then we might not have
had these problems.  

This program worked for Iceland.  They have the statistics to prove it.  And it is working with varying degrees of success in other countries.  So, there is hope.

Is Marijuana Production Good for the Environment?

Is Marijuana Production Good for the Environment?

Is Pot Production Good for the Environment?

There is no limit to the lies that people tell about the benefits of marijuana.  One of those is how pot is so environmentally friendly.  I’ve taken this data straight from a website called Mother Jones.  They have referenced these statistics.  

I’ve said numerous times, if you are going to smoke pot, drink alcohol or do other drugs, fine, do it but don’t tell me it is good for you.  Or safe.  Check out the stats below:


24 Mind Blowing Facts About Marijuana Production in America

“You thought your pot came from environmentally conscious hippies? Think again. The way marijuana is grown in America, it turns out, is anything but sustainable and organic.  Check out these mind blowing stats, and while you’re at it, read Josh Harkinson’s feature story, ‘The Landscape-Scarring, Energy-Sucking, Wildlife-Killing Reality of Pot Farming.’”

“Of the estimated 22 million pounds of marijuana grown each year on the United States, nearly 80 percent comes from California, Tennessee, Kentucky, Hawaii, and Washington.”

“In 2013, California authorities seized 329 outdoor grow sites and hauled away: 1.2 million plants, 119,000 pounds of trash, 17,000 pounds of fertilizer, 40 gallons of pesticides, 244 propane tanks, 61 car batteries, 89 illegal dams and 81 miles of irrigation piping.”

“Trespass grows accounted for 72 percent of outdoor plants seized in California in 2013.”

“Nearly half of the cannabis eradicated by law enforcement nationwide was on public or tribal land.”

“During California’s growing season, outdoor grows consume roughly 60 million gallons of water a day - 50 more than is used by all the residents of San Francisco.”

“An estimated one-third of America’s pot crop is grown indoors.”

“And indoor grow module accommodating 4 plants sucks as much electricity as 29 refrigerators.”

“In California, indoor marijuana grows account for about 9 percent of household electricity use.”

Nationwide, the electricity used by indoor grows is enough to power 1.7 million homes.  That’s the equivalent to the output of 7 large power plants.”

“For every pound of pot grown indoors, 4,600 pounds of CO2 goes into the atmosphere.”

“The production and distribution of pot in America emits as much carbon as 3 million cars.”

“The energy to produce a single joint is enough to produce 18 pints of beer and creates emissions comparable to burning a 100 watt light bulb for 25 hours.”

Is Marijuna Safe For Pregnant Women?

Is Marijuna Safe For Pregnant Women?

Marijuana Safe For Pregnant Women?

Is Marijuana safe for pregnant women to use?

Is Marijuana safe for breastfeeding women? (Is it safe for the babies?)

If  you listen to the media and others that are pro pot or are marketing marijuana, you might be convinced that marijuana is a cure all.  Claims from curing cancer, headaches and a myriad of other ills.  

Before going any further, I will define what we mean by a drug.  

“"Define your terms, gentlemen, define your terms. It saves argument!”
- Dr. Samuel Johnson

I’ve heard so many people having an argument about pretty much anything and it is pretty easy to see from the outside that they haven’t first defined their terms.  This stands for marijuana.  97% of people walking around will agree that marijuana can be defined as a drug.  We’ll take a definition from a Random House Dictionary.

"A drug is any substance (other than food that provides nutritional support) that, when inhaled, injected, smoked, consumed, absorbed via a patch on the skin, or dissolved under the tongue causes a temporary physiological (and often psychological) change in the body."  (This definition compiled from Stedman's Medical Dictionary and Random House Dictionary.)

That said, we can move on.

Go to a health show in your local city and walk up to the ever increasing ‘Grow’ booths and others that are promoting pot and ask the vendor if Marijuana is safe for pregnant or breastfeeding women.  The answer is usually affirmative.  In Canada, where marijuana is now legal, you will see more of this. 

But, in contrast, here is what Health Canada and the FDA have to say.  

Health Canada and FDA:

Health Canada

“Health effects during pregnancy and breastfeeding

Just like with tobacco and alcohol, a pregnant woman or new mother's use of cannabis can affect her fetus or newborn child.

The substances in cannabis are carried through the mother's blood to her fetus during pregnancy. They are passed into the breast milk following birth. This can lead to health problems for the child.

Cannabis use during pregnancy can lead to lower birth weight of the baby. It has also been associated with longer-term developmental effects in children and adolescents, such as:

 - decreases in:

- memory function

- ability to pay attention

- reasoning and problem-solving skills

- hyperactive behaviour

      • increased risk for future substance use”

(ref: Health Canada - Cannabis)


“Mental health effects:

In some people, cannabis use increases the risk of developing mental illnesses such as psychosis or schizophrenia, especially those who:

- start using cannabis at a young age

- use cannabis frequently (daily or almost every day)

- have a personal or family history of psychosis and/or schizophrenia

Frequent cannabis use has also been associated with an increased risk of:

- suicide

- depression

- anxiety disorders

There is evidence to suggest that combining tobacco with cannabis can increase:

- the strength of some psychoactive effects

- the risk of poor mental health outcomes including  addiction”

(ref: Mental Health)

And from FDA (USA Food and Drug Administration)

“FDA strongly advises against the use of cannabidiol (CBD), tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), and marijuana in any form during pregnancy or while breastfeeding. … FDA wants you to know there may be serious risks to using cannabis products, including those containing CBD, if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.”

“marijuana use during pregnancy may affect fetal brain development, because THC can enter the fetal brain from the mother’s bloodstream.”

“…This THC may affect a newborn’s brain development and result in hyperactivity, poor cognitive function, and other long-term consequences.”

With regard to CBD, there are no test proving it harmful, meaning that there are no tests proving is safe either. 

Years ago alcohol was touted as safe for pregnant women.  Alcohol was then another drug untested and considered safe for many physical and mental problems.  We have learned the hard way about fetal alcohol syndrome.  

What is ‘fetal alcohol syndrome’?

“Fetal alcohol syndrome is a condition in a child that results from alcohol exposure during the mother's pregnancy. Fetal alcohol syndrome causes brain damage and growth problems. The problems caused by fetal alcohol syndrome vary from child to child, but defects caused by fetal alcohol syndrome are not reversible.” from

Are we going to learn the hard way (again) that marijuana causes health and development issues?  I have been at Health Shows in Toronto, Canada, where marijuana is now legal, and have heard the vendors at ‘Pot’ booths telling pregnant women that it is entirely safe; that pot will help with morning sickness and other pains and aches.  Completely irresponsible.  There is no proof that it is safe.  None whatsoever!  In fact, there is plenty of information coming to light that the worst time for anyone to use marijuana is while the brain is developing.  


“Although brain development is subject to significant individual variation, most experts suggest that the brain is fully developed by age 25.”

Also, significant tests have been done to show that the brain patterns of someone under the effects of marijuana mimic or are the same as the brain of a schizophrenic.

Do you want that for your child? 

Life is difficult enough.  There are enough barriers to one’s survival without adding to it the handicap of drugs.  One of the side effects on children and teens, as stated above, is the inability to pay attention.  So you now you end up labelling your child ADHD.  If you do take this chance, then you may end up tempted to further compound your child’s problems in feeling the need to use pharmaceuticals such as Ritalin.  Setting up your child for drug use for life.

So, be compassionate.   Give you child a fighting chance.  Keep away from marijuana (and other drugs) while pregnant and while breast feeding.  

There is more information on this website as to the effects of street drugs and also prescription drugs such as Ritalin and Prozac.  

Remember, before starting an argument, define your terms.

Synonyms for ‘Stoned’

Synonyms for ‘Stoned’

Synonyms for ‘Stoned’

Wherever you look these days, in the media and other places, we are told that marijuana is a panacea, a cure all.  If you see a ‘pot booth’ at a trade show, the dudes there will gladly tell you that pot is completely safe for pregnant women.  Pretty irresponsible if you ask me.  There is not one iota of evidence to support this.  Years ago alcohol was considered completely safe for pregnant women.  Have you met any alcohol syndrome children or adults?  I wouldn’t wish that on my worst enemy.  Do we find out in ten, twenty or thirty years from now that marijuana has similar effects.  These dudes at the weed stores are not doctors, have done no research and really don’t have a clue.  

All kinds of justifications for smoking weed.  It calms you, it is great for anxiety, cures cancer and a million other things.  A placebo can do the same thing and likely with a higher success rate than marijuana.  

By far the majority of people are not smoking or ingesting marijuana for the health benefits.  Most are just trying to get stoned.  Very few people that drink will tell you that it is completely good for you. They drink alcohol to ‘get away’ from things or some kind of escape.  

I’ve put together a list of words and phrases that people use to refer to the effects of marijuana on one.  None of them reflect mental acuity.  









spaced out









whacked out

spaced out




high as a kite


doped up





out of it


hash head

wiped out









out of his head




freaked out






fucked up


blissed out

in a trance


off one’s head


in a stupor

out of one’s mind

... In fact they reflect just the opposite.  Marijuana is used to not confront the world around one.  Some people will experiment with it because it’s now legal in some areas.  Largely, though it is used to escape.  Problem, as with any drug, one often needs more and more to get the desired effect.  And then other drugs.  Some don’t move on to other drugs and these are the ones that get quoted but statistically the majority do. 

I’ve heard people assert that it makes one a better driver when stoned.  These people are pretty disconnected from reality.  It is illegal to drive (DUI) stoned.anti depressants  That’s because the people looking at you realized that you are impaired when driving NOT more capable.

DUI/DWI laws by State (USA)

One of the known side effects of marijuana is that is slows reaction time. That is not going to make you a better driver. 

If you are going to be using or trying marijuana, please read through the list and note the effect that it actually has instead of listening to the statements of someone who is going to make money from your slow demise. 

And please don’t ever get in a car with a driver who is stoned/high on marijuana or hashish. 

This from the National Institute on Drug Abuse (USA)

“Several studies have shown that drivers with THC in their blood were roughly twice as likely to be responsible for a deadly crash or be killed than drivers who hadn't used drugs or alcohol.”

There has been a lot of effort over the last couple of decades to ‘rebrand’ marijuana.  In the 1970s and 1980s there were movies such as ‘Dazed and Confused’ and ‘Up in Smoke’.  Other scenes and movies of this era showed pot to diminish one’s abilities. 

The conglomerates that are trying to market pot to the masses have spent millions trying to change the impression that people have about the drug.  (It is still a drug.)  Trying to convince people that the (untested) benefits outweigh the harm that marijuana can do. 

The plans and money spent on this rebranding are well documented.  You can find links other places for these on this website. 

Know before you go.  The drug dealer doesn’t have your best interests at heart.  Whether that drug dealer is in a nice suit and employed by the government or your friend’s brother, he or she is in it for the money
