    if you don t agree with society you get labeled a schizophrenic. Does this
    guy look healthy to you ?
    Look at his body language, his eyes. the bile spots all over his face,
    alcohol ? that s good for your brain, and maybe excessive coffee, and a
    horrific diet, and he s a doctor and condemning weed basically

    What a legend. What he says is so true, people take weed health warnings
    wayyy to lightly these days.

    if the persons with this “disease” have common genes it means that there’s
    a common ancestre and as i had read even the old civilisation their kings
    had this feeling that they had divine permission to rule the society but
    today if they tell people that thing they will be interned in psychiatric
    hospital i mean the very old times when the whole earth was rules by
    divinities we must find them and establishing the matching test

    what a load of bullshit.

    They’re right. Years back when I first started smoking weed it changed me
    from a violent military fighter, into a peaceful benevolent person. I
    received an honorable discharge a short while later because you can’t have
    corporate wars with a peace loving soldiers. BTW…this guy reminds me of
    David Lopan in “Big Trouble In Little China”. Remember the old dried up
    basket case in the wheel chair?

    All these mainstream losers calling him crazy… Weed isnt cool like all
    your “freinds” say lol, It can, and does effect people in different ways
    just like allergens do.. so many
    Ignorant dickheads that prefer inside the box rather than Out.

    Damn i need closed captions to understand this guy.

    I would agree with Watson a great deal….. the brain is the most complex
    thing in the entire universe and one of the areas where we are in the most
    ignorance of. The BRAIN Project should render very fruitful. It’s obvious
    that there are genetic predispositions to things. As our ignorance of the
    brain decreases, and our knowledge of neurochemistry, neurobiology,
    molecular biophysics, and genomics increase, we will find some of these
    answers.

    This old guy… and everyone else… is so f***ing high right now. :)

    It can trigger Alzheimer too, as evidenced in this video :p

  12. Eggla bean says:

  13. Red Borbon says:

    Who let this crazy man into the big think studio?

  14. dylan kurrle says:

    kandapanda in 2 weeks after you smoke one bang you thing shit on your face
    all time wont snap out of it 

  15. Eri Sosa says:

    Lol it can but if you think about it every single person has a bit of
    schitzofrenia and also the saying weed isn’t for the weak minded is true 

  16. HareJoce says:

    My best friend smoked weed habitually for about 2 years and suddenly had a
    schizophrenic episode. Comparing his mental state and how he acted before
    he smoked and after the fact is scary.

  17. Jeremy Torres says:

    Omg if schizophrenia doesn’t run in your family then this video doesn’t
    concern you, weed isn’t for everyone and its DEFINITELY not for those with
    pre-dispositions who want to help prevent triggering schizophrenia quit
    taking it so personally.

    AHAHAHAHAHAHA Awesome stuff! Hilarious! 😀

    Tis guy is…. Yeah.. He is….

  20. MrUnlimitedPotential says:

    What the fuck? How arrogant is it to think that YOU have the right to come
    to the conclusion that people shouldn’t be “cured” for their misfortunes?
    Standards include: healthy brain Expectations include: healthy brain If
    someone is committing a murder, they need help; more specifically, their
    brain needs help. People are essentially victims to brain activity. This is
    why we need to treat criminals, not punish them! Since free-will is an
    illusion, I don’t blame ANYONE FOR ANYTHING. We are ONE!

  21. MrUnlimitedPotential says:

    fuck yea dude, i see that you see what i see… lol Definitely, it’s 100%
    true that if you affect 1 brain, it affects every other brain on the
    planet, subtlety though. It’s quite amazing to see the sacred geometry in
    almost every aspect of life, integrated with the Yin and Yang, and the
    ultimate Oneness that pervades and encompasses everything.
