Always a sad situation when someone takes there life, but odds are she had underlying mental illness that actually drove her to do this. Could cannabis amplify mental illness? Possibly, I think any drug has that potential. To just blame it on weed is classic reefer madness tactics

I can be terribly insensitive like 99% of the time so excuse me

On another note I can’t stand it when people blame everything but themselves

“They’re smoking distillates and vapes and resins and waxes and dabs and things called shatter. They’re smoking laboratory creations meant to drive addiction and set off dopamine avalanches in their still developing brains.”

Ya ok Karen. These are made to addict kids. People are so dumb

Without knowing the family personally I can’t comment on their parenting. But I know that the family unit (in most homes) sure isn’t what it used to be. That’s why our youth are the way they are now…

And social media.

Neuroplasticity is real. Kids shouldn’t be using. Honestly even people below 25 should take it easy on substance use. It can really trigger some weird shit while the brain is still very malleable.

I’ve seen some people, especially young people, really change with chronic substance use, weed and otherwise. :man_shrugging:

Take care of your brain, you only got one

Yeah, there’s certainly some combination of neurological/genetic/circumstantial factors at play.

There’s been links to usage and development of anxiety disorders, suicide rates, and emotional deregulation. As well as just the usual issues of being too baked to do well in school.

Correlation=//= causation either, those drawn to substance abuse often have underlying neurological issues. But either way, it certainly doesn’t seem to help anything.

What makes everything worse is that the world’s fucked and people’s futures are looking tougher by the day, if that isn’t reason to be baked then I don’t know what is

I can’t imagine the pain this mom is going through.

I hope she can find solace in the millions and millions of people the drug really is helping(in concentrated form)

I feel for them, but I just can’t blame the concentrates. Social media is destroying our youth.

“In the late fall of 2020, Mila wrote in her diary about her frustration with lockdowns and her dwindling friend group. According to the mandates in our province, she wasn’t supposed to be socializing at all. Some parents forbade their kids from participating in the clandestine friend gatherings. In her small friend group, their get togethers often involved smoking and consuming drugs. She wrote of her boyfriend, and other friends, always being high on pens and that she was “pissed off” because their limited interactions were wasteful for her - other kids high and laughing and her sitting there “bored”.”

Looks like maybe COVID lockdown deserves the same amount of the blame as the cannabis, likely more
