An online Zoom presentation entitled “The Dangerous Truth About Today’s Marijuana: Johnny Stack’s Life and Death Story” will be held today at 1 pm by the International Academy of the Science and Impact of Cannabis.
Laura Stack’s 19-year-old son, Johnny, died by suicide on November 20, 2019, after becoming delusional from dabbing high-THC marijuana concentrates. Soon afterward, Laura started a 501c3, Johnny’s Ambassadors, to educate parents and teens about the dangers of today’s high-THC marijuana on adolescent brain development, mental illness, and suicide. In this session, Laura will share the story of Johnny’s marijuana addiction from a parent’s point of view.
Dr. Libby Stuyt will provide the scientific-based research on the correlation between cannabis, psychosis, and suicide. Dr. Stuyt will include evidence that high-potency concentrates, such as what Johnny was using, are the worst culprits, and how advocates have attempted to put some controls on these with legislation in Colorado.
This informative presentation is free. Please register here for Tuesday November, 16 2021.
