NORML Debunks Latest Smear Campaign Against Cannabis

As cannabis becomes more popular as being a legal way to medicate oneself in 24 states across the U.S., a tirade of news outlet who are dead-set against cannabis use in any form, are pushing out false information (propaganda) from a deeply flawed study which claims that it causes psychosis.

Paul Armentano, National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws (NORML) joins Thom Hartmann. This “study” claims that smoking will make you go crazy – as in psychotic crazy.

But what the majority of scientific research says about cannabis is actually contrary to the study’s claims, and in fact consuming cannabis improves mental health and other health benefits in the body.

Let us know what you think about this in the comments below. We welcome your input!

    Sounds like ‘Reefer Madness’ again trying to make its way into the public from sources that don’t want to see MJ legalized because it’ll threatened their own interest$.

      I would hope that the general public is a little more informed than they were in the 30’s

    The government has lied to us for decades about Marijuana, and I’m sure the hundreds of thousands of [marijuana] users out there can confirm that they have not become psychotically crazy. Its absurd and that propaganda is dreadful. Shame on you.

    the government is lying to us, look in the public record and you will this is a herb not a drug and is the safest substance known to man so said a dea administrative judge who was over ruled by the dea administrator. we all have an endocannaboid system in our bodies, which cannabis feeds, way past time to stop starving the subsystem in our body who job it is to keep up running right.

    Our government is “guiding” our medical care; not our doctors. Healing has been removed from the medical community’s domain. Cannabis is an herb – I agree of course. Big Pharma and the politicians are running our lives – they are intruding into our intimate aspects of our lives.

    what I find most interesting in all of this is that while the government tells us we need to tell the truth, they lie, cheat and steal,. unfortunately my government is no better then the mafia
