Except the school shootings were happening before any of those things..... How can anyone support a candidate that spouts this utter nonsense. Take your ignorance and contempt for the middle class back to NJ.

I don’t even think the right likes this… maybe FAR right. At this point most people in both parties are for recreational marijuana so i feel like all he’s doing is losing people who actually have a strong opinion (so most likely ppl for) while also losing medical patients

I don’t trust them to not contest the mail ballots again, we’re lucky they didn’t throw them out last time and I can bet they’ll try it again. I’m going in person this time so they can’t go pull shit.

Screw them, the courts decided it's legit, let them bitch all they want. If they win they will stop making mail in ballots available, they won't make them not count for this election.

Oh carpetbagger Oz thinks weed is responsible for school shootings?

Because we all know the side effects of weed are sudden violent outbursts. Granted those outbursts happen to Doritos bags but still!

What is this, the 60's!? Do people still really believe the ridiculous myths about THC!? In reality, THC would most likely stop that train of thought, can anyone picture a stoner shooting someone? I can't...

Gul_Ducatti t1_ir0prf9 wrote

I would like to preface this by saying Dr. Oz is a fucking clown and his opinion on this matter is so off base that it has reached Orbit.

BUT THC is not 100% safe. There are documented cases of people that do enter states of temporary psychosis . The article posted even states that it is rare and does not happen in all cases.

Now, this does not, by any means, means that school shooters are sucking down a spliff one day and deciding to go kill someone, but the reality is that THC is mond altering and under certain circumstances it can induce psychosis.

In conclusion, Oz is a fuckhead that should have stayed in his lane in NJ and kept shilling for Oprah for Snake oil.

I believe you, I never heard of that with weed though, Meth, yea.

Gul_Ducatti t1_ir0s7yy wrote

It isn't very common with cannabis and it does take high doses and someone that may already have underlying mental health issues.

It is purely anecdotal, but I have a friend that has underlying mental health issues and they took a 50mg retail edible as their first time. In the process they also took a huge dab and later in the might a second edible.

For a first timer that is massive amounts. They had a psychotic episode due to their underlying mental health issues being amplified by the anxiety and other effects of the cannabis and had to be 302'd for a 72 hour hold.

I believe you 100%. I got so many stories, it's not even funny. Anecdotal is the only, true way to learn things. It's up to society, to actually listen. So many close minded individuals though, it's truly nauseating. Thank you for your experience.

I work in Forks PA (around 15 mins from Phillipsburg NJ) and the big joke monday morning is "So, cross any state lines this weekend?" Our guys are either going to NJ to get cheaper booze with more variety or to go pick up some herb.

What a freaking joke of a system.

The fear mongering over a plant by the right wing would be hilarious if it wasn't part of the prison profit pipeline. Cigarettes caused cancer for years with big tabacoo investing huge sums of money to obscure and hide that fact from the public for as long as possible but the dangerous plant is sone how weed.

Like I'm sure if we did long term studies eventually we would find there is some negative trade off for long term habitual use but I seriously doubt it's anywhere near as bad as tabacoo products or alcohol. And that is ignoring that it actually has medicinal applications that far out strip the other two.

Also fuck Oz as a research scientist he fucking knows corolation does not equal causation. Especially since he murdered a fuck ton of puppies at Columbia doing research.

People can make fun of these douchebags as much as they want but their vote still only equals one vote…it takes a lot more than one vote to win. Bad politicians aren’t the underlying cause of bad politics; biased, uninformed, strait blue and strait red voting is the problem. All or nothing thinking and the need of being right and everybody else being wrong is exactly what these tools feed on. Both parties have plenty of issues but it’s not a democrat or a republican issue, it’s a voter issue. The government works exactly the way it’s meant to…keeping people divided. And we, the voters, completely enable it. With the media. With the way we treat eachother. The way we choose to not listen to reason. The way we pass judgement. The way we choose not to change. The way we choose to hate and be angry. The way we choose to pretend like we’re the exception. We, the voters, are the problem. Not the dipshits we put in to office.

No, he is NOT a radical leftist! he's simply a humanist and understands pennsylvania and understands the job he's running for-

and if you think putting humans and public safety first is leftist then you are very out of touch with humanity and certainly caught up in the rhetoric and lies.

Oz has scammed millions people, he isnt even from PA or the USA- he's a hollywood grifter that needs to go away because he represents everything wrong with this country right now. Oz has proved that he doesn't even know what the job is about and he just puts forth dogwhistles. he should scare us all!

Fact is no matter what their lying tongues pretend 100% of republican voters in PA will vote for him and Mastriano.

This shows a very poor understanding of the world. More and more, I have come to realize that politics is based on a very poor understanding of the factors which lead to bad outcomes. A lot of political analysis is just pitiful. Political activists operate based on theories with very poor explanatory power.

Jicama_Minimum t1_iqyqela wrote

Title is misleading. School shootings are not mentioned in the article. The article does mention Oz saying kids being out of school for Covid encouraged them to play with guns, and a claim that gun violence rose in states with legalized marijuana but doesn’t mention school shootings. I didn’t watch the video just read the article, so maybe it’s in the video.

I don’t support Oz, but I don’t think the title is accurate, and that’s all that most people will read.

Jicama_Minimum t1_iqyuza5 wrote

I think Oz saying school being out leads to more violence is more a reference to gang violence we are seeing in Philly for example. It kind of makes sense, kids being out of school might have some correlation to an increase in gang violence, but I’m not an expert so I don’t know. It wouldn’t make sense if he was talking about school shootings, and the article doesn’t say he is, so the title shouldn’t say he is. Again, I don’t support him, but clearly he’s not a total idiot or he wouldn’t have gotten where he is. And again, I actually support Fetterman who I think is a much better candidate. Care to expand on how you came up with the title?

Jicama_Minimum t1_ir1asuz wrote

He says gun violence but doesn’t say school shootings. I guess you made the title school shootings, which is a subset of gun violence, so that is accurate. It just seems like a crazy claim no one would make so making it the title seems misleading, but I see your point. I’m always trying to understand online bias more and I think I jumped to an accusation that doesn’t hold up well upon further examination, so sorry for that.

Jicama_Minimum t1_ir4uxsd wrote

I’ve thought about this more and can better say why I feel the title is misleading. He doesn’t say school shootings, he says gun violence. When you say school shootings in the title it is focusing on one part of gun violence. Now if I said we should send Ukraine weapons to help in the war, you could make a post that said “Jicama Minimum thinks we should be sending nukes to Ukraine”. Technically this seems like a true statement, nuclear weapons are weapons, and I said we should be sending weapons to Ukraine. But it is twisting the truth still. I feel like that is what the title did. I don’t think the original meaning was school shootings, they aren’t mentioned anywhere in the article. Does that make sense? If not please tell me where I am wrong.

I’m getting so tired of the misinformation posted on this sub. Why can’t democrats post the positive things about their candidates, instead of trying to smear your opponents with false information?

I’m still puzzled how you didn’t even read my comment but just the first few words.

The only reason as to why democrats can’t do that is because they don’t have anything positive to say about their own candidates.
