Teen female suicide rate is the highest now - in 40 yr history of measurements.

Teen male rate is climbing - not yet to mid 1980-early 1990's levels

 

Below: incomplete Dept Of Transportation's report on Marijuana Driving.

WHY is that report missing the NIH report on the accurate detection of marijuana by DREs at 96.7% accuracy ONLY using 4 SFST as being statistically significant to their conclusions (also attached - please read)?  This study was WELL powered with over 300 in the study AND control arms. 

Do they NOT like the results/narrative this study provides? - THERE ARE EFFECTIVE MEASUREMENTS ALREADY AVAILABLE TO ACCURATELY DETECT MARIJUANA IN DRIVERS!

Here is info from CO as to what drug LEADS in the blood stream of teens committing suicides in Colorado - marijuana.

Also info from TN Mayor's son - see what was in his blood stream ... more than opiates - yes, marijuana. 

Look at his previous addiction history - yes, marijuana - when he was a student at Puget Sound University in Seattle, WASHINGTON (from another article I read).  So he moved after graduating college from Pot Heaven #2 (WA) to Pot Heaven #1 (CO).

Is the public putting this together yet?

Also adding articles why PTSD and marijuana is a BAD idea.  Remember who killed the American Sniper - a marijuana user with PTSD ...

Max Barry died from combination of several drugs, including two opioids, autopsy shows

Joey Garrison, USA Today Network - Tennessee Published 3:26 p.m. CT Aug. 9, 2017 | Updated 10:55 p.m. CT Aug. 9, 2017

Max Barry, son of Nashville Mayor Megan Barrydied from a combination of several drugs, including opioids, according to an autopsy report released Wednesday by the Jefferson County Coroner's Office in ColoradoDrugs found in Max Barry following his death were Xanax, marijuana and two opioids — liquid methodone and hydromorphone. The autopsy also showed that he had recently used cocaine. Max Barry, 22, died at a home that a friend was housesitting on Saturday, July 29, in Littleton, Colo., a suburb of Denver, where he had moved after college. He was there with two friends.

The toxicology findings confirm what the mayor called an "apparent overdose" immediately after his death. She had speculated that her son was killed by a combination of a drugs including Xanax. There was no alcohol present in Max Barry after his death, according to the autopsy report. Contributing factors to his death were hypertension and obesity.

The mayor and husband Bruce Barry have chosen to be transparent about the death of their only child to become a voice in the growing national opioid crisis. Max Barry had past struggles with drug addiction and enrolled in a drug rehab facility last summer for one month.

The mayor, after returning to work Monday and discussing the tragedy with local media, has been on a national media swing this week to discuss opioids and her son's battle with drugs.

She appeared on CNN with Jake Tapper and "PBS NewsHour" on Tuesday and on MSNBC's "Meet The Press Daily" with Chuck Todd and "NBC Nightly News" on Wednesday.

According to the autopsy report, Max Barry was pronounced dead at 9:30 p.m. after emergency responders arrived on scene at the house. In a 911 call released by the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office, a friend of Max Barry says that he and another friend went out for food, came back and found Barry unresponsive. He says that Max had brought some pills over to the home and had taken them earlier. The friend is heard on the frantic phone call receiving instructions from the operator and shouting, “Max, Max, Max,” to try to resuscitate him. He relays that he believes Max Barry had used a combination of drugs. At one point, the friend says that Max Barry had started to wheeze and show signs of breathing again. “Can you breathe?” the friend says as he continued to carry out instructions. The call lasted 6 minutes, 35 seconds and stopped when police arrived.

The autopsy report cites Max Barry's reported past drug history, including his time in rehab and a history of prescription of drug abuse with withdrawal symptoms and marijuana use

Over the week and a half since Max Barry's death, Nashvillians have overwhelmingly come out to support the mayor and provide condolences to her and her family.

Thousands waited in line, some up to three hours, to greet the Barrys at a family visitation last week. That was followed by an emotional memorial service the next day where the Barrys were joined by family and hundreds of their closest friends and political associates.

Marijuana Use Is Associated With Worse Outcomes in Symptom Severity and Violent Behavior in Patients With Posttraumatic Stress Disorder
Conclusions: In this observational study, initiating marijuana use after treatment was associated with worse PTSD symptoms, more violent behavior, and alcohol use. Marijuana may actually worsen PTSD symptoms or nullify the benefits of specialized, intensive treatment. Cessation or prevention of use may be an important goal of treatment.
