This important book focuses on only one aspect of the serious adverse consequences of cannabis epidemic: cannabis induced mental illness associated with violence.
Yet the facts are horrifyingly alarming!

Forget about the lies that cannabis advocates are throwing into your ears- here are the terrible facts:
> Cannabis actually kills people- by traffic road accidents, child neglect, cannabis-induced psychosis violence.
> Cannabis will not reduce the opiate crisis- it will increase it.
> Cannabis users are 4 times more likely to develop severe mental illness.
> Cannabis legalization is not good for the public, it is only good for the cannabis industry investors. Health related spending due at adverse consequence of marijuana use will offset any revenue gained from tax collections.
> Cannabis will make everyone mellow-wrong. It will make some people extremely violent and can lead to crimes. Hungry, happy and sleepy and in some cases extremely violent!
> Legalizing marijuana does not stop the illegal black market- it makes it cheaper in both legal and illegal markets thus increases availability and drives up consumption.
Statistics from states and countries (murders in Uruguay rose by 64% following legalization in 2017) that legalized recreational cannabis show crimes including murder and assault has significantly increased not decreased.
> It is proven that cannabis use before 25 will permanently decrease the brain development and cognitive capabilities of the user.

I would certainly echo the author’s cry:
Open your eyes.
See the truth.
Tell your children.
