Imprimis, the FREE publication made available by Hillsdale College has published a great article about Marijuana and its link to mental illness and violent crimes, in the January 2019 issue.  It is definitely worth your time reading and sharing. 

Here are just two quotes from the article by Alex Berenson, (author of Tell You Children the Truth about Marijuana Illness and Violence) that demonstrates just how far removed from the truth of the negative effects of marijuana and the marketing campaign that pot advocates are promoting really is.

"Some advocates go so far as to claim that legalization has reduced violent crime.  In a 2017 speech calling for the federal legalization, U.S. Senator Cory Booker said that 'states [that have legalized marijuana are seeing decreases in violent crime.'
He was wrong"

"But a mountain of peer-reviewed research in top medical journals shows that marijuana use can cause or worsen severe mental illness, especially psychosis, the medical term for a break from reality.  Teenagers who smoke marijuana regularly are about three times as likely to develop schizophrenia, the most devastating psychotic disorder."

We at ANEFCA encourage you to read the entire article.
