Palin Approves Smoking Pot but What about Schizophrenia?

“If somebody’s gonna smoke a joint in their house and not do anybody else any harm,” former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin said recently on FOX News, the fuzz should just leave them be.”

However, her evangelical friends ought to be careful with her advice because, according to an article on Live Science, “Marijuana Worsens Schizophrenia.” They report:

Marijuana gives people with schizophrenia a quick rush but worsens their psychotic symptoms within a few hours, a new study reveals.

Researchers in the Netherlands recruited 48 psychiatric patients and 47 healthy people to record what they were doing and how they felt 12 times a day for six days. All the study participants were regular pot smokers. The results showed that schizophrenia sufferers were more sensitive than healthy individuals to both the positive and negative effects of marijuana, or cannabis.

Enter the [c]hristian  evangelical who already sees ghosts and spirits and believes in the undead! Compare their ‘spiritual visions’ with schizophrenia which is defined as a mental disorder characterized by abnormalities in the perception or expression of reality. It most commonly manifests as auditory hallucinations, paranoid or bizarre delusions, or disorganized speech and thinking.

See any differences?  I don’t .

  1. This statement by her is just plain skrewy. Why haven’t we heard more of her endorsement of casual marijuana use? Is she actually trying to recruit the stoner vote?
    The sad ass truth is that millions of people in America smoke pot every day and a lot of them are fuzzy brained libertarians if they profess any political stance at all. America is the land of schizos…you put up the front in public and walk the walk, talk the talk…then you go home and drink, abuse presciption drugs, smoke pot, eat a few bags of potato chips, a quart of Hagen Daz…and tell the world you are always dieting, but nothing seems to work….
    Hell, she is from Alaska, though, and there, if you want to brew up some crystal meth in your trailer, it’s cool unless you blow the sucker up…
    On the other hand, I guess nobody notices what she says…she reached the yap barrier…you know, the lips keep movin, the noise becomes a background skawk and everyonec in a while, America looks up collectively and says “HUH?”

  2. Now there is something that I would pay a dollar to see just like any freak side show at the carnival or circus…..Sarah Palin Stoned.

    I can see it now….(Insert dream sequence here)….Hurry, Hurry, Hurry, See the amazing Sarah Palin Stoned!!!! She walks, she talks, she slizzers on her belly like a reptile. For just one U.S. Federal Reserve Dollar Bill Note, you can see her in person. You will be amazed and astonished at the level she can campaign for her next election and others while stoked up on POT!!!! Hurry, Hurry, Hurry, the next show starts in 10 minutes so get your tickets from the beautiful attendant to my right, Ann Coulter, and get your seat so you don’t miss a single second of this next Wonder of The World. Hurry, Hurry, Hurry.

    (Back ground music is, “Here Comes The Clowns”)

  3. The disconnected thought process, the non sequiters, the inane expressions she habitually uses might make one believe that she is, has been and will be stoned…it depends on your definition of the word…
    Not in the Hendrixian sense of “experienced” surely…
    “Not neccessarly stoned, but beautiful”…
    Sarah? A Beautiful mind?…hey, Hitler was beaned out of his gourd on amphetamines and what ever else his medical staff could find to keep the little Fuehrer happy for the last 4 years of his life.

  4. Gentlemen- I’ve never thought about your hypotheses that maybe, in fact, Yukon Barbie may be permanently stoned. Her random thoughts and disconnectedness are sure signs of some sort of chemical imbalance and/or a result of way too many fundamentalist get-togethers.
