Fox News on the Spot for Linking “Pot Psychosis” to the Recent Mass Shootings

Laura Ingraham, reporter at Fox News, has been on the receiving end of mass media fury for allegedly linking the recent Mass Shootings that happened last week in Rob Elementary School in Texas to marijuana-induced psychosis. This appeared to be a media effort to drum up fear and once again, resurrect the ghosts of reefer madness.

Ingraham’s guest, Dr. Russell Kamer, claimed that there is clear evidence linking the use of high THC marijuana with psychosis.  The panel also seemed to agree that the “cannabis in use today” is way more potent than what was being used in the past and that should explain why the “connection” aka pot psychosis and mass killings has not been widely discussed. One would then wonder what reefer madness and the cannabis prohibition era was all about?

According to Kamer, the state of Colorado is experiencing first-hand the full impact of legalization on the mental status of the youth. He claimed that kids show up in the ER in a state of full-fledged cannabis induced psychosis. He also predicted that federal legalization would translate to about 7,000 additional traffic fatalities each year. Have states that have legalized cannabis experienced an upsurge in fatal car accidents? There’s no data to support this.

Ingraham made an accurate prediction that she would be on the receiving end of hate mail after the show was aired. True to her prediction, Ingraham and her guest have been slammed for making the suggestion that pot was behind the heartless mass killings in Uvalde. Some commenters highlighted the high rate of alcohol-induced road fatalities that have somehow never made to Fox headlines.  Many felt that this was just orchestrated effort to cause fear and hysteria as was done decades back. For whose benefit? One may ask.
