"Of you who are fans in her role files as the pirates manager he will manage today's game but he has been let go there's going to be a news conference where the Huntington coming up in just a little bit Jeff Hathorn are Katie K. radio sports director covering that and then he will join us a little bit later on this afternoon once that news conference as concluded and get the very latest in all the details the pirates playing this afternoon in their final game of the season and the final game for Clint hurdle we're talking about marijuana legalizing it regulating it and the top. elected officials in the Commonwealth all in favor of it the governor lieutenant governor auditor general Attorney General all saying legalize it and regulated than with us right now on the disc is to to to Pittsburgh Newsline Patrick nightingale with Pittsburgh chapter of normal the national organization for the reform of marijuana laws and it Patrick you alluded to the pros and cons what are some of the serious issues that need to be addressed in this decision as to whether or not to regulate marijuana for recreational purposes. well you know one of the things that I hear from members of law enforcement I'm a criminal defense attorney and former prosecutor so I had the opportunity to talk to a police officers about this and they say you know we understand that the the the public attitude is changing we understand that legalization may be inevitable but we're really concerned that there could be an increase and be why or do you why related fatalities and they want to. please make sure that we're not opening a Pandora's box that's going to result in a significant and marijuana related accidents or fatalities a released by the Colorado I don't know those Colorado department of justice office of justice in October of twenty eighteen was assessing just those types of concerns and what that report found was that there was no increase in cannabis related B. Y. fatalities where it was cannabis only in the operator's blood stream rather what they found was B. Y. fatalities that had alcohol there were also on occasion an increase of amount of THC metabolites but when it came to cannabis only the wind be always take all these days all knows that there's going. I know that there is a concern from employers that give we embrace legalization that they may have a harder time finding applicant that can pass a drug test and the answer to that I would submit is what we're seeing in other US states New York California where employers are no longer permitted to screen applicants. for cannabis with pre employment drug test another concern that is something that's important and that we need to discuss is whether or not legalization would cause an increase in use cannabis consumption again turning back to that the Colorado report that I just referenced they had seen no increase in the youth cannabis use are you cannabis abuse and I think that you know that something where if we talk about responsible cannabis use part of that is also responsibly educating our young people but one of the things that they mess with this is that at least if we have a well regulated industry a child a young person the teenager can't just walk into a a marijuana dispensary or retail establishments and by cannabis right now they could probably easily acquire it in their in their school hallway so much regulation at the very least there's going to be someone at the point of sale of checking ID is similar to or a liquor store system. let's go back over some of these things if we could the issue of driving under the influence do we need a better system to determine whether or not there truly was an influence of THC in any driving or potential accident than we have right now. yes absolutely you're right now the only thing that we can do is test blood and we see whether or not there are delta nine levels in the blood delta nine THC is the is the active the psychoactive cannabinoid it metabolizes very quickly into hydroxy PAC and then carboxy PHC which is a non cycle active metabolite but what we can tell from just looking at those numbers as opposed to a blood alcohol content for example is whether or not that had any correlation with driving with an accident or whether or not.

"Tell your children about marijuana mental illness in violence was published. It's caused a firestorm from all sides. He was attacked do a quick Google search about spirits, and you'll see whatever you feel about his work Berenson, has been ready and willing to have conversations about it just about anyone including almost three hours with Joe Rogan in marijuana advocate. Alex Berenson is worth listening to I talked to in this week. All right. We are talking with Alex Berenson. He's a former reporter for the New York Times and a bunch of other esteemed institutions left the times in twenty ten to devote himself to writing fiction, novels, and then wrote the book in January. Tell your chil- children, which has been. I'll tell you Alex, I have never seen such response. Maybe maybe Salman, Rushdie's book twenty five years ago, but. I never seen such hostile response from certain demographic in this country. Marijuana advocate demographic to this were you surprised by it. Yes, I was I look good. I expect some backlash. Yes, I expect backlash one, we called tell your children is that the original title of the movie Reefer madness. And so, you know, I sort of weaned in, but I didn't expect the advocacy community essentially to lie about the book the way they have I thought they were saving. But well, you know, there's some there's some stuff we need you talk about here. We don't think this changes he's around legalization but, but, you know there are some scientific issues that he raises that haven't been raised, maybe they should have been. I not people with, with lie about what the book says for accused me of being racist or say that I cherry picked, when, in fact, basically every study in the book, basically every major, you know, scientific study I could find is, is in the book, you know, as I say, I take the whole bushel, right. But, but no. I, I. I've been surprised by the vehemence of the response. And that's interesting because it is not in citations, and all the evidence stuff, you'd need around these around the case. You make. But did you go into the same wanting to blow up the marijuana crowd? What I winning was. Well, I wouldn't say winning I not knowing Brinks. But by the by the time I, you know, done some research and, and read, you know, some of the most important studies and talk to some of the leading researchers I went in Chile very much like this was a story that needed to be told that, that for for twenty years really twenty to thirty years, the cannabis industry aided by lot of journalists has promoted narrative that cannabis is extremely safe and that it's, you know that it's medicine, actually a lot of things and, and, you know, as a as a former reporter, who I guess, is become a reporter. Again, I was very mindful the old investigative reporters joke, that if your mother says she loves you check it out. I really regard this as a failure journal, you know, advocates advocates we're gonna advocate, and it's the job of reporters not to cheer them on. But to question. So I just did a quick search before. We jumped on here in just found a few of the similar claims by different corners in the marijuana industry. And these are some of the biggest one once one does marijuana, cure depression. No depression, you probably worsens depression. There's, there was a good study that came out a couple of months ago, suggesting that use of marijuana as an adolescent lead to more, depression, and more suicidal thinking by people in their twenties. It does not cure depression. Wow. So what is the, the correlation between marijuana? Young people in in suicide does. Well, it says I should say it was thinking temp suicide self is, is so rare that it's pretty hard to correlate any single factor was suicide. Although if you look really hard, you can, you can find some evidence when actually does increase completed suicides. But I, I wouldn't say there's strong evidence on that, but, but, but marijuana does appear to be linked to crushing again, a few years later, here's the thing, marijuana gonna talk. Okay. So you can use intoxicants to treat psychiatric conditions in the shorter. You can use alcohol will make you, you know, make your depression feel better for a week or two. Right. And you can use Benz those to treat your anxiety psychiatrist do that. But using using drugs that can be abused to treat long-term psychiatric conditions is generally, not a good idea. Generally people rebound. They have more problems later, you're not really treating whatever the underlying reasons for their depression or anxiety, is, and so you'd have more problems later. And so that, that's the way people need to think about marijuana. Yes. Like out people are Chris cocaine. Sure. Better. But it's not a good idea. So what about weight loss? Weight loss. I've never even heard that, that when I was the prices as well, because one of the joys of marijuana that, that, that, that I was into my twenties was eating afterwards. So it doesn't seem like it. Yes. I'm I'm much more aware of the insertive conversing in talking about that. The psychiatric alarms I will say, for whatever reason there isn't really strong evidence marijuana causes lung. Maybe because people don't use a lot of compared to the amount of that Abaco. Maybe there are some properties of you know, certain chemicals now onto that protected. But for for whatever reason marijuana the one good thing you can say that is because. Yeah, I think with, with the vaping and animals. Maybe, maybe they'll, they'll miss the Markkanen. That'll be something that will be spared of hopefully unlike the cigarette. Evidently. Yeah. Okay. So you clean the teenage marijuana. Use is tied into mental illness. Yes. So, so the so I can I can I can talk at incredible. I'll try not to marijuana use in general causes temporary. Episodes of psychosis. It causes that happens a lot. Okay. They're there that happens so often that, if you go and do dispensary and you say, you know, I tend to get kind of anxious when I use, they'll say use this strain, it doesn't cause as much paranoia or anxiety. So here's the thing if you smoke, and you get really paranoid. I mean, really Caroline. Thank you know, the neighbors are trying to kill you or the cop who drove by once he's going to break down your door, and you start to behave so irrationally that you wind up in an ER you're going to get a diagnosis of cannabis psychosis. Homeless certain. Okay. And they may say you had a panic attack or you had, you know, cannabis and do things ID, but what's going to go on your diagnosis for him is almost certainly canvas induced psychosis. And that happens. Hundreds of times a day in the United States. And the reason I can say that with certainty that I looked at some federal billing records, the most reasons which, unfortunately we're only two thousand fourteen so that's probably understates the problem and about eight hundred thousand times US in two thousand fourteen people went to ers and they had a primary diagnosis of psychosis. So schizophrenia, or bipolar disorder was like Osas something that got them to the ER that the that the doctor labeled some kind of psychotic disorder coast. Again, that's when you hallucinate, you usually have some kind of break from reality. In eleven percent of those cases, the person also had a diagnosis of cannabis use disorder, cannabis abuse or dependence, so more than one in ten of the people who show up at ers in the US in two thousand fourteen ninety thousand cases are people at severe marijuana problems. Even though those people are only about one to two percent of the population. So so so, so cannabis can cause temporary. Closest adults in teens in anybody use and. Yeah we joke about this. You know, when Dowd wrote about what a terrible episode she had she got mucked industry's response to this effectively. Beat 'em been Kamakura people who are suffering from it and say you know what you are. You're loser. You couldn't that you couldn't handle your dope. Which would you very strange way to, to look at this? The question I was the only question around psychosis. And it's a very important one as does teenage marijuana use increase the risk for permanent psychotic disorders of which the most important by far schizophrenia. So it's a terrible disorder. You know, most people if they think about people in their lives like one or two people who, who develop schizophrenia, 'cause about one in one hundred fifty people worldwide get this, and, you know, that's when you hallucinations and your vision, and your paranoia become effectively Kermit they can be treated, but they never really go away. And those. People have really miserable lives. They, they, they don't work. Most of them. They don't they don't get married. They don't have kids, they're very prone to, to die younger than other people. It's not a good disease. So can marijuana. Con schizophrenia. And, and I would say the answer that question is yes, to a reasonable degree of scientific certainty. So when you look at people who use you find that many more of them develop schizophrenia the rate ratio with another. If you wanted one hundred fifty times if one hundred fifty chance of developing schizophrenia, if, if your general member of the population that goes way up if you use cannabis, especially in the teens, especially you can high potency campus. So the industry has a bunch of explanations for this all sound to me, as a skeptic a lot like the explanations that, that the back going three had for why tobacco doesn't didn't really cause lung cancer. And they fought that fight for about nineteen fifty through nineteen ninety five and they killed a ton of Americans along the way. So, so so can can we say with certainty that marijuana causes? Schizophrenia, not with certainty, but we can say it with a great degree of confidence. So how I mean is this something we have a cannabis control Commissioner Massachusetts? Is this not something that maybe would be tiny red flag to these commissions around the? Yes. I mean, here's here's, here's what I would say, you can believe this and understand this and still think cannabis Lille, how calls it causes tremendous harm to some people use it tobacco tobacco kills do kills more people, you know, Americans than any other preventable source of disease. So, so we allow people to, you know, adult especially to use stuff that's can be harmful to them. We have, you know, I know there's a giant casino, any Boston, a couple people there, some people who are gonna lose their houses to that. That's how it is. But at the lease we should be talking about this, and factoring in H, our decision, whether or not to legalize and be to what we're going to tell people about this truck help people about this book that is, you know, enough right there to really to really bring industry to its knees or to have at least people in industry want to go go after you pretty hard. Okay. So I don't know why by the way, I mean, I, I guess I'm cynical, but so much. But I don't know why if you're in the industry, you don't want to have an honest conversation about this. And, and by the way, that may sound like yes. But here's the truth. Okay say, coasts is terrible illness. Psychosis related violence is terrible. And if. If, if people start to believe the that, that cannabis industry has lied to them about this that will be much more dangerous than my book ever will be..

Look at this question, I would say the only question around on psychosis.

To a reasonable degree of scientific certainty. So when you look at people who use you find many more of them develop schizophrenia that the rate ratio. In other words, if you wanted one hundred fifty times if you have a one hundred fifty chance of developing schizophrenia, if you if you're a general member of the population that goes way up if you use cannabis, especially in the teams, especially you can high potency canvas. So the industry has a bunch of explanations for this. All sounds to me as a skeptic a lot like the explanations that, that the back going to St. had for why tobacco doesn't didn't really cause lung cancer. And they fought that fight for one thousand nine hundred fifty through about nineteen ninety five and they killed a ton of Americans along the way. So, so so can can we say with certainty that marijuana causes? Schizophrenia, not with certainty. But we can say it with a great degree of confidence. So how I mean is this something that we have a cannabis control Commissioner in Massachusetts is not something that maybe would be tiny red flag to these commissions around the? Here's here's, here's what I would say, you can't believe this and understand this and still think cannabis legal, alcohol, it causes tremendous harm to some people. Use it tobacco tobacco kills do kills more people Americans than any other preventable source of disease. So, so we allow people to adult especially to use stuff that can be harmful to them. We have, you know, I know there's a giant casino opening in Boston. Some people who are gonna lose their houses to that casino. That's how it is. But at least we should be talking about this, and factoring it in HR decision, whether or not to legalize and be to what we're going to tell people about this drug. That is ITO enough, right there to really to really bring industry to its knees or to have at least people in the industry, want to go go after you pretty hard.

And if, if, if people start to believe that the that, that cannabis industry has lied to them about this that will be much more dangerous for them than my book ever will be. Well, don't you think there's something spiritual about the brand of marijuana? It's from the earth. It's, you know, it's, it's got the holistic value or supposedly, at least maybe CBD does maybe doesn't. Is that is it a religion? That's the problem. It's, it's an addictive. Crook that people like to ties about. I mean, the idea that it's natural when, you know, the flower has been clothed, in crossed bright, twenty five percent, teach see and no CD, and you can smoke stuff. That's extracted from the plant with with butane or carbon dioxide. I mean that's about as monopolist heroin. I'm not joking. Medicine natural. But here's the thing you are correct marijuana..

But I, I wouldn't say there's strong evidence on that, but, but, but marijuana does appear to be linked to crushing again, a few years later Hughes thing, marijuana gonna talk. Okay, so you can use intoxicants to treat psychiatric conditions in the courts. You can use alcohol will make you, you know, make your depression feel better for a week or two. Right. And you can use benzoate treat your anxiety psychiatrist do that. But using using drugs that can be abused to treat long-term psychiatric conditions is generally, not a good idea. Generally people rebound. They have more problems later. They're not really treating whatever the underlying reasons for their depression or anxiety, is, and so you'd have more problems later. And so that, that's the way people need to think that marijuana. That's yes. Like out people are Chris cocaine. Sure. Better. But it's not a good idea. So what about weight loss? Weight-loss around I've never even heard that when I was surprised to see as well, because one of the joys of marijuana that, that I was into my twenties eating afterwards. So it doesn't seem like it. Yes, I'm much more aware of the observe conversing in talking about the African arms. I will say, for whatever reason there isn't really strong evidence power wanna causes lung. Maybe because people don't use a lot of it compared to the amount of that the Baco, maybe there are some properties of certain chemicals now on their protective. But for for whatever reason marijuana the one good thing you can say about it doesn't because. Yeah, I think was with the vaping into edibles, maybe, maybe they'll, they'll miss the Markkanen. That'll be something. They will be spared of hopefully this cigarettes. Okay. So you clean the teenage marijuana use. Is tied into mental illness. Yes. So, so the so I can I can I can talk incredible. I'll try not to marijuana use in general causes temporary. Episodes of psychosis. It causes that happens a lot, okay? There. There been so often that if you go into dispensary and you say, you know, I tend to get kind of anxious when I use they'll save us strain. It doesn't cause as much paranoia or anxiety. So here's the thing if you smoke, and you get really paranoid. I mean, really, you know, the neighbors are trying to kill you or the cop who drove by once he's going to break down your door, and you start to behave so irrationally that you wind up in an ER. You're going to get a diagnosis of cannabis psychosis. Homeless certain. Okay. And they may say you had a panic attack or you had, you know, canvas do things, but what's going to go on your diagnosis, for is almost certainly canvas induce psychosis. And that. Happens hundreds of times a day in the United States. And the reason I can say that with certainty that I looked at some federal billing records the most recent which, fortunately, we're only two thousand fourteen so that's probably understates the crowds, and about eight hundred thousand times US in two thousand fourteen people went to ers and they had a primary diagnosis of psychosis. Schizophrenia or bipolar disorder. Psychosis, something that got them to the ER that the that era Dr labeled some kind of psychotic disorder coast. Again, that's when you hallucinate some kind of break from reality. In eleven percent of those cases, the person also headed diagnosis of cannabis use disorder cannabis abuse or dependence, so more than one in ten of the people show up at ers in the US in two thousand fourteen ninety thousand cases or people with severe marijuana problems, even though those people are only about one to two percent of the population. So, so, so cannabis can cause temp. Psychosis. Adults in teens in anybody and yeah we we joke about this. You know, when Dowd wrote about what a terrible episode she, she got the industry's response to this is eat them been to mock the people who are suffering from it and say, you know what you are. You're loser. You couldn't you couldn't handle your Doke, which I would you very strange way to look at this question, I would say, the only question around on say choses, and it's very important one as does teenage marijuana use increase the risk for permanent psychotic disorders of which the most important by far schizophrenia. So it's a terrible disorder. You know, most people they think about people in their lives. One or two people who, who develop schizophrenia, because about one in one hundred fifty people worldwide get this. And, you know, that's when you're loosens, and you're, and you're paranoid become effectively Kermit they can be treated, but they never really go away. And those people have really miserable lives. They, they, they don't work. Most of them. They don't they don't get married. They don't have kids, they're very prone to, to die younger than other people. It's not a good disease. So can marijuana. Con schizophrenia. And, and I would say the answer to that question is, yes, to a reasonable degree of scientific certainty. So when you look at people who use you find many more of them develop schizophrenia that the rate ratio with another. If you wanted one hundred fifty times, if, if you have a one hundred fifty chance of developing schizophrenia, if you if your general member of the population that goes way up if you use cannabis. Especially in the teams especially you can high potency campus. So the industry has a bunch of explanations for this. All sounds to me as a skeptic a lot like the explanations that tobacco industry had for why tobacco doesn't didn't really cause lung cancer, and they fought that fight for nineteen fifty to nineteen ninety five and they killed a ton of Americans along the way. So, so so can can we say with certainty that marijuana causes? Schizophrenia, not with certainty, but we can say it with a great degree of common. So how I mean is this something that we have a cannabis control Commissioner Massachusetts is not something that maybe would be tiny red flag to these commissions around the? I mean, here's here's, here's what I would say, you can believe this and understand this and still think cannabis legal, it causes tremendous harm to some people. Use it tobacco legal medical kills do kills more people, you know, Americans than any other preventable source of disease to so we allow people to, you know, adult especially to use stuff that can be harmful to them. We have, you know, I know there's a casino opening Boston. The couple. Some people who are gonna lose their houses to that. That's how it is. But at least we should be talking about this, and factoring in a student, whether or not we go is and be to what we're going to tell people about this truck that is, you know, enough right there to really to really bring industry to its knees or to have at least people in an industry want to go go after you pretty hard. Okay, so I don't know why by the way, I mean, I guess I'm cynical but so I don't know why if you're in the industry, you don't want to have an honest conversation about this. And by the way, that may sound like Bs, but here's the truth. Okay say, Kucice terrible illness. Psychosis related violence is terrible. And if, if people start to believe that cannabis industry has lied to them about this that will be much more dangerous than my book ever will be. Well, don't you think to something spiritual about the brand of marijuana? It's from the earth. It's. You know, it's the holistic value or supposedly, at least maybe does maybe doesn't. Is that is it a religion? That's the problem. It's, it's an addictive. That people like to publicize about, I mean, I do this, natural when even you know, the flower has been cold in crossed t- twenty five percent, teat see and no CD, and you can smoke stuff. That's extracted from the plant with with butane or carbon dioxide. I mean that's about as natural heroin. I'm not joking. It's on natural. But here's the thing you are correct marijuana. A has a great brand that the media has done a tremendous service promoting and be people tweet this drug differently than any other drugs. What we call somebody who drinks all day every day. He's an alcoholic. Okay..

Joined live on the KCBS ring, central Newsline, by Dr Daniel and founder, of Amen clinics and the study's lead author Dr thank you for your time this morning do we have any clue as to how, these things that I mentioned schizophrenia, cannabis abuse it now call abuse affects. The brain and causes. Age, faster They're toxic to the brain or people have experienced trauma. We first started the brain imaging work we do when I started my, first clinic in Fairfield in. One thousand nine hundred eighty nine and over. The last thirty, years or so we have built a database of. About one hundred and fifty thousand scams and. We've seen there are some things that accelerate aging and things people don't expect like cannabis abuse everybody thinks cannabis is sort. Of good for your brain our study it's our second study that said probably not an untreated mental, health issues gets a for any of bipolar disorder ADHD and so. On let's let's dial back, a bit and talk about what you looked at in this study so these are brain. Scans looking at what blood flow in. The brain the shape of the brain tell us a little about in, layman's, terms if you can't what you, looked at suspect looks at blood flow Oh and, actively it looks at. How the brain works so it's different than a cat, scan or an MRI. That show structure we look at function and it's actually a leading indicator of trouble so. For example we'll see someone's headed toward Alzheimer's disease even a decade before, they have any symptoms and. Some of the things that I'm classically trained. As a psychiatrist, had no idea they were damaging my patient's brains What are the things I'm, looking at here among your findings. That is surprising to me most of us think of alcohol abuse. As being so severe so so very hard on the body and yet based on what you have found, it looks like alcohol abuse maybe much less damaging. To the brain then cannabis abuse. Well it's clearly what this study showed when we looked at the statistics now having, scanned thousands, of alcoholics over the? Years, alcohol is not a health food it's not good. For your brain and it was associated with aging the cannabis continues to. Surprise us and the damage was mostly seen it in an area. Called the hippocampus, which is the major memory center in, the brain let me ask those sort of. So what question if a brain is so so to speak older than the body. It's in what does that mean Well it means you're more vulnerable to things like, depression means you're more vulnerable to. Get fired because your brain is not as healthy so you're not. Gonna make as good decisions it means you're going to have more trouble in your marriage because again you're, not gonna make good decisions your brain controls everything. You do and everything you are. And when it's, troubled you have trouble in your life do we have any idea if there's, a gender difference here You know that's really interesting our second largest study of forty six thousand scans, show there's huge gender differences. In, the brain and, that women are, at much higher risk for depression. And Alzheimer's disease where man or much higher risk for substance abuse and ADHD so women, tend to have really busy brains. And healthier brains, overall men not so much thanks for your.
