Marijuana rescheduling

About time

What about cannabis psychosis? It is known to trigger paranoid schizophrenia.

This has to be the easiest decision ever. About time was close to a century ago, or whenever it was put on schedule one in the first place.

I worked with addicts for over 10 years and have never even heard of it, much less witnessed it.

Edit to add: Just looked it up, it is possible .0027 percent of the time.

The paranoia happens most often when you used a leetle bit too much and usually passes after coming down from the high. Don’t ask me how I know.

With this change, can Willie Nelson continue to call himself an outlaw?

Waylon used to say the most outlaw thing Willie ever did was double park on music row.

Used to have a joint maybe a couple of times a year. Haven’t smoked one in about 10 years now.

Anyways about 4 months ago, my son gave me a cookie that was “loaded”. Ate about 1/2 a cookie and then 1/2 an hour, ate the other half. Felt nothing.

About 2 months ago tried another one[ate the whole cookie at once]. Was waiting and waiting…felt nothing. Then it kicked in after about 2 hours.

Felt nauseous and started throwing up. Felt rotten and waited until the effects wore off.

Guess you can OD on the stuff. No more loaded cookies for me.

I have a couple of buddies that I refer to as Cheech and Chong.
I don’t imbibe, but they sometimes try to get me to.
We had a golf outing and one of them brought a huge tupperware of “loaded” cookies.
I texted my wife and told her they were trying to trick me since they know how much I like to eat.

Sounds like what happened to me. I first tried gummies and didn’t like the feeling. Then my adult grandson brought over a MJ vape pen. The room started spinning and I threw up about 4 times. I’m never going to try MJ again, or chicken pot pie.

I know about this from someone else. Their daughter smoked weed and triggered her schizophrenia.

I believe that you have to have the schizophrenia genes (not really genes…) and smoking weed can trigger the schizophrenia. Not to say that something else like a traumatic event can also trigger it. My wifes uncle is a MD and we were talking about this a few months ago. He was commenting that he has seen multiple patients with this after they legalized the medical weed in OK.

I am not saying it doesn’t exist, but the data shows that it can occur in less than .0027 percent of people.,of%20cannabis-induced%20psychotic%20disorder.

And it’s in the news…
