FALL RIVER, Massachusetts (LifeSiteNews) — Cases of psychosis are increasing since marijuana has become available over-the-counter. This was predicted. Psychotic symptoms may include auditory and visual hallucinations, paranoia, delusions, or other odd, disorganized thoughts and behavior.
A delusion is a fixed, false belief and may be bizarre or plausible, like being convinced that your parents have been replaced by space aliens or that your boyfriend is cheating on you.
The increased occurrence of psychotic illness in marijuana users was noted in psychiatric clinical literature many years ago. Some of these studies were verified through replication. Today, the availability of powerful hybrid strains, the concurrent use of energy drinks, or psychostimulant drugs and medications can increase this risk. Psychosis is not a good thing. There is no guarantee the person will respond to treatment with antipsychotic medicines.
Scientific findings suggest a 3-fold increase in the frequency of psychotic illness among users of marijuana. Some argue that it’s not the fault of the cannabis but rather that those with dormant schizophrenia are more likely to use cannabis, thereby unmasking their mental illness. Sort of like how persons attracted to skiing have dormant bone abnormalities unmasked when schussing in Colorado. Their hip would have spontaneously shattered at some future point anyway.
The entire country has seen what happens when men enter women's sports.
Lia Thomas is a biological male, but he was nonetheless allowed swim against elite female competitors to win an NCAA Freestyle competition, much to the disappointment of those women who had trained so hard to compete.
SIGN THE PETITION TO BAN MALES FROM WOMEN'S SPORTS TODAY
Males have a natural advantage over females in the vast majority of sports, so allowing them to enter women's sports can:
- crush the motivation of the biological girls who have worked hard to compete on a level playing field
- put females into harm's way in contact sports and locker rooms
- deprive women of their right to fairly compete for college scholarships and many other accolades
We all know the spectacle of Lia Thomas defeating those female swimmers was a charade, a mockery of women's sports, but now it's time to do something about it.
Please SIGN this urgent petition calling on members of Congress to pass a law banning the participation of biological males in women's sports.
This is not just about ensuring biological girls and women can compete fairly and win in their chosen sports, but it's also a major safety issue in contact sports and the dangerous use of women's locker rooms by gender-confused males.
Some of you will remember Fallon Fox, the male MMA fighter who claimed to be a woman and left his female opponent concussed and with a fractured skull.
Fox later announced on social media that he enjoys "smacking up" women who "talk transphobic nonsense."
Any reasonable person knows men shouldn't compete against women, but some people are too politically correct to take a stand and protect girls and women from this madness.
It's now time to join the growing pushback against the gender-confused lobby and their dangerous beliefs that have literally left some female competitors in the hospital.
Please SIGN this common sense petition calling on Congress to ban all males from competing in women's sport.
Future generations will look back with gratitude on those who stood on the right side of history, defending women from these very confused males.
Nothing less than a federal ban on biological males forcing their way into women's sport is enough, so this petition will be sent to all members of Congress demanding legislative action.

Not everyone who smokes tobacco gets lung cancer. Not everyone who uses cannabis becomes schizophrenic. But there are quantifiable risks for both. It is known that blood relatives of persons with schizophrenia should not use cannabis because of their genetic predisposition for psychotic illness.
It would be interesting to see the past, current, and predicted ER visit and hospitalization expenditures for the treatment of cannabis-induced mental illness from our major health insurers. Sequi pecuniam.
The numbers are not likely to go down given that its legalization appears to have officially declared cannabis harmless, nullifying cannabis’ categorization as a hallucinogen.
Learn to recognize psychotic symptoms and behaviors. Cannabis-induced psychosis must be diagnosed and treated early to prevent permanent brain alterations.
