EDITORIAL: “Marijuana is Evil and it Makes You Crazy!”

Editorial by Tom Lemons,

Did my “Click Bait” headline grab your attention? I hope it did because after the vicious attacks I received this afternoon, regarding marijuana being a factor in a child’s death, I would like to provide my opinion and a few scientific facts on the subject.

Two-month old Miles Luke Anchondo Jr. died at the hands of his father, Miles Sr. earlier this year, due injuries received from several acts of violence. The Sheriff’s Office stated in their media release that, “Upon arrival, patrol deputies located a naked infant on the living room floor, but the infant was dry, conflicting with Anchondo’s statement to the 9-1-1 operator.  Deputies also observed what they believed to be marijuana in plain view, in the living room.” Officials further stated, “During the interview Kraft noted other discrepancies in what Anchondo was stating to him and what he stated during the 9-1-1 call.  Also during the interview, Anchondo admitted to smoking marijuana the day before, and stated he knocked over a small bong while he was trying to help the infant.  He told Kraft he kicked the broken pieces of the bong under the sofa.” And lastly Officials stated, “It was concluded that the incident described by the father was not consistent with the injuries the infant suffered.  The infant suffered ongoing physical abuse which resulted in his death.

As a result of the investigation, Anchondo was charged with Murder While Engaged in Certain Felony Offenses and Aggravated Child Abuse.

When I posted my article on the RNRF Facebook page, the vast majority of responses were people outraged over my headline that stated, “Marijuana Use Possible Factor.” (ORIGINAL ARTICLE)

Here are a few samples responses:

Jennifer Gill – “Omg marijuana did not make him hurt that baby his own decisions did. Don’t blame the weed on his poor decisions and lack of patience with his own child. He’s a horrible human being and deserves every horrible thing to happen to him but let’s not start with the usual propaganda of marijuana being a bad drug!”

Tony Alden – “What A Stupid Headline To Actually Insinuate Marijuana Was An Excuse To Abuse Then Murder Your Child……SHAME ON YOU…..!!!”

Jessica Lindsay Crisson – “I’ve been a huge supporter of you Mr. Lemons but this is a complete and utter BULLSHIT headline and I will no longer be following you or supporting what you stand for. Cannabis had nothing to do with this. That father is a POS and should rot in prison.”

News articles posted by RNRF only provides facts from official agencies or statements from witnesses, victims, defendants, or related topic subjects. We do not opine unless we explicitly announced that we are publishing an editorial or opinionated article.

What has actually happened is that a large segment of society has become so hypersensitive over key words like, “Marijuana,” “Black,” “Pit Bull,” or various other unacceptable politically incorrect terms that they are “triggered” anytime they see or hear something that might conflict with their social or political beliefs. I think “intolerance” is the correct term.

Marijuana, Alcohol, Prescription Narcotics, Illegal Narcotics and even Caffeine and Nicotine can have physical, behavioral, and emotional effects on your body. Marijuana is an intoxicant and that’s why it’s illegal to smoke, drink, or use any intoxicant before getting behind the wheel of a car.

Regardless of those commenters who believe marijuana should be legalized for recreational use – it is not, and it remains illegal. Your opinion has no bearing on whether you get arrested for being in possession of, driving under the influence of, or, like in this case, being a factor in the murder of an infant child.

Marijuana effects people differently and when you’re stoned and in the care of an infant, do you think you are prepared the make the best judgement calls in the event of an emergency? What if you are completely passed out from just smoking marijuana and because your child is screaming, you snap and shake the child to death? Is that not a plausible hypothesis?

But let’s talk about my opinion on Marijuana, since that seems to be why I was viscously attacked for using the word in an article. I believe marijuana is an excellent alternative to chemical treatments for certain medical conditions. Do I believe marijuana is the cure all for every ailment? No. And I do believe there are negative attributes contributed to marijuana use, just like any intoxicant.

I want to reiterate, I am not anti-marijuana! I completely agree with it being used for medical purposes.

If marijuana becomes legal, as it has in several states, it will not change the fact that it is an intoxicant and it will still lead to car accidents, injuries and deaths, just like other intoxicants.

Do you want your surgeons smoking pot before you go under the knife? Do you want your police officers smoking pot before making a decision on whether or not to shoot a suspect? Do you want your taxi driver, bus driver or airline pilot smoking pot before taking your life into their hands? Do you want your child’s school bus driver taking your children’s lives into their hands while under the influence of marijuana? If you said no to those questions, then why is it okay for a parent to care for an infant child, not only under the influence of marijuana but smoking it in front of them?

But let’s discuss what experts have discovered after a 50-year study was conducted on the use of marijuana and the prevalence of violent behavior.

According to a 2016 article in Psychology Today, “…individuals who are involved in violence or who commit criminal offenses may also be people who are more open to using marijuana.  After all, marijuana is an illegal substance in most places, so people with antisocial personality traits and those with tendencies toward lawlessness may be the type of individuals inclined to be more open to obtaining and using the illegal substance.” Experts also stated, “Continued use of cannabis over the life-time of the study was the strongest predictor of violent convictions, even when the other factors that contribute to violent behavior were considered in the statistical analysis.” And in conclusion scientists say, “The results show that continued cannabis use is associated with a 7-fold greater odds for subsequent commission of violent crimes.  This level of risk is similar to the increased risk of lung cancer from smoking cigarettes over a similar duration (40 years).  The authors suggest that impairments in neurological circuits controlling behavior may underlie impulsive, violent behavior, as a result of cannabis altering the normal neural functioning in the ventrolateral prefrontal cortex.”And here’s a huge revelation (Drum roll) I, Tom Lemons smoked marijuana in my late teens. So, I know exactly what the effects of marijuana are on a person, and it absolutely affects judgement.

I’m sure some of you will still go ballistic over this article, despite my efforts to provide scientific evidence and a personal explanation of my opinion, but as they say – Que sera, sera!

  • I love marijuana!

    Saturday, 28 October 2017, 11:52 pm
  • I started working at a place in Traverse City Mi in the late 70s and every 20 something was smoking up a storm so I joined in and I never got so much as a giggle or any affect at all for three months. I asked a girl out and invited her to share a joint at my apartment before we went to a club. I had half a joint that I had smoked a few days before so I know it was not tampered with and I had rolled it from an ounce (20$) that was half gone. I took two drags and she finished it off and I was gone baby gone…hallucinating and time shifted and scared to death (severe paranoia) she walked me (actually I staggered) to a nearby beer joint and met some friends there and I accused her one girlfriend of speaking a foreign language. I left immediately and wandered around for an hour until I found my way home. There I stared at the clock until 10 am worried that I would never straighten out and debated getting to the hospital for help. Finally at 4pm (20 hours after the smoke) I felt fairly normal . I never smoked it again and quit my job and moved to Florida. I had given the remainder of the pot to my next door neighbor and he never reported any ill effects from it. I concluded that it built up in my system until I crashed. You couldn’t pay me enough to research that hypothesis… Sign me …glad to be straight.

    • I was a cop not from Traverse City at the time. A lot of the smokers got a little surprise in the form of crystal meth, a danger as long as you leave something good in the hands of pushers.

  • Over the past few months this website has become more like a Springer episode or the Enquirer. This really does it for me. I can no longer trust information from Tom Lemons or this website becaue I know it’s probably vague, sensationalized and not factual.

    Friday, 27 October 2017, 8:59 pm
  • L.O.L.! DWAYNE! YOU FUNNY! QUNESHA! SHAME ON YOU.BE NICE SWEETIE! YO TOM? i feel kinda dissed, i sometimes thank you or encourage you and you have never replied to me.??? geez i’m offended, i’m done! just kidding of course but you never do reply to the SURFADUDE! keep pounding/keep rockin tom!

    Friday, 27 October 2017, 6:00 pm
  • thanks for standing up for your own beliefs Tom. i agree with everything in the article you wrote. i also smoked dope in my youth, also drank and smoked cigarettes. but then i grew up!! some people are gonna bitch and gripe no matter what the topic. keep letting us know whats going on in our county.

    Friday, 27 October 2017, 4:00 pm
  • Wow this is exactly how I feel. You will never make the pot heads understand , even if you quoted GOD about the dangers of pot. Just so sick of hearing people defend it. If it’s not addictive how come you pot heads can’t stop.

    Friday, 27 October 2017, 3:01 pm
  • There is no such thing as a safe drug. Every drug has side effects. People who say alcohol is worse or some other illogical statement miss the point. Cannabis has the potential to ruin your life, just like any addictive substance.

    Ask anyone who quit how much better they feel. I could point to many people who smoked in HS who were very smart, got all A’s despite smoking and are now complete losers.

    Then there is the scientific evidence. It causes paranoia (the reason for some of the comments here), amotivational syndrome, depression, irritability and anger, anxiety, arrested development etc.

    That is the best paragraph in this whole article!!!

    I am all for marijuana……when it’s used both medically and or responsibly.

    Great job as usual Tom.

  • people using alcohol as a defense for weed aren’t thinking straight
    using any substance to numb or energize yourself is degenerate
    does that mean coffee is the same as crack? of course not, but you will be much better off without any and all of it. no amount of laws or lack thereof will fix this problem. YOU HAVE TO TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR YOUR OWN ACTIONS. the left is right that laws don’t really help when a large segment of the population wants something. the right is correct that drugs and drug use is a very bad thing in an individuals life and for our country. you must choose to be a good person. weed, booze, tobacco, excess food, pornography, adultery and divorce must end, and only we the people can do it. stop waiting for someone else to fix yourself, stop abdicating responsibility to “authority figures”.

    that’s the only way to save our nation

  • What if he was angry because the crying baby was messing up his buzz? He’s high, baby is crying and fussing like babies do. He get’s pissed and slaps the infant around…………..?? Pot usually makes people mellow, but what ever the case – he was probably impaired on a daily basis.

    Friday, 27 October 2017, 10:11 am
  • Tom, You just can’t reach some people. That’s exactly why the GOV. can’t agree with how to deal with it. I totally agree with you.
    Yes greed has a lot to do with it , Unfortunately the biggest problem is who will profit the most from the greed. The GOV. doesn’t want the public to make the profits and the public doesn’t want the Gov to reap more profits (taxes etc like they do from alcohol and cigs).
    Until one side or the other gives in, like they did in Colorado. Nothing to going to happen in this state. Florida since the 60’s when i first started landing here has always been ALL ABOUT THE MONEY.
    GREAT JOB ON THIS ARTICLE.

  • I do not always agree with your pov on the topics you report and also have issues with some of the details that prove to be incorrect due to trying too report something quickly. With that being said, I am very grateful for a local news guy updating the local community on the daily occurances within my home town. We Spring Hillians/Brooksvillites are very fortunate to have you. Thank you for doing what you do.

  • No need to waste time you are wrong…. Cant prove antthing you just said. Your driving is more dangerous than smoking. Lets not be a typical hypocrite. Do some better home work contact N.O.R.M.A.L and read the Jamaican studies thats a start. But love reading your propaganda…..🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪🍪

    Friday, 27 October 2017, 8:23 am
  • I read your post twice so just that I understood what you were saying….I agree with you 100%. I also think what needs to be considered is pot that is laced with other drugs. Many years ago I had my own personal experience with pot and ended up in an Emergency Room. I was a real mess and it took me several hours before I even felt like myself. It was not only me who had this experience, it was also a friend that was smoking the same joint as I was. I also believe that many people abuse and kill their own children because they are just incompetent to take care of them and I wonder if there is a study of people who leave their children in hot cars for hours or an entire day…I wonder if they were also under the influence of pot? When an incident where a child was found dead, do Officers of the Law test the parents for illegal drugs…..I do think that some prescription medications will make people do things like this couple did and I am just wondering if this couple were under the influence?

    Friday, 27 October 2017, 8:15 am
  • Other countries have done studies long term use destroys the coating around the neurons. You are exactly right Tom. That is why we see people who use it long term acting like their brain is fried. I have a brother like this! It is really sad.

  • I don’t smoke pot because i can’t function. That is just me. Couldn’t function 20 years ago and tried it again due to chronic pain and I still could not function. Sux to be me because I would rather take a bong hit than a pharmaceutical. The vast majority of ppl who cant function on pot, like me, don’t smoke pot, unless maybe if it is a newbie and they are figuring that out pretty quick if they can function or not. I think age restriction may be a good idea. A teenager has no business drinking or smoking pot. That can lead to bad decisions, peer preasure, and mistakes they can not take back and hanging with the wrong crowd, some ppl are just bad people. A good, yet inexperienced kid can get caught up if they are around just a bad influence in general and life can be derailed pretty quick.. These are some vilad concerns. However, I have tons of professional friends who are able to smoke pot after work or in certain circumstances and it affects their body chemistry totally different. In some ppl it works like magic from depression, pain, lowering stress levels to reviving the soul in general. It seems most of us are not normal anymore. Becaue the world had changed and everyone seems to be getting burned out in life and there is way more anxiety and stress these days and many of us are going or feeling bat shit crazy. So, we have to trust ourselves enough to know if are we grown up and mature enough to notice if we have positive effects or neg effects. I am not thrilled about kids trying it because their brains are still developing and they usually lack experience. If someone is just plain lazy and sucks the energy from others, then they may be a burdon on society regardless. I think pot should be legal but age limit 25 unless it is for medical. Than maybe there would not be the need for sneaking around to do it just because the kids may think it will help them look or feel cool. No answer will be 100 percent correct..it is a hard call. However, the criminalization of someone being cought with a joint can really cause way worse damage to someones life by the system and cause a real fear of the legal system and fear of law enforcement when 99 percent of law enforcement officers really puts their life on the line to protect us. It’s just not an easy discussion. Each side is overly defensive. We need to be progressive and get over this so we can work on solving the more serious issues in our community

  • Tom, what a stellar job of reporting on this. I’m blown away at the details/medical research you pulled and reported here. And the paragraph about wanting my surgeon, my pilot, my police officers, my child’s bus driver high, etc. was BRILLIANT…you so nailed it my friend!! And as I stated before, you are 200% right on ALL of this. I do understand the medical cause for the need for marijuana. But I DO FEEL that it should be prescribed with certain rules/laws attached. Mainly being, that you agree to be homebound/ to stay put at the time of use and no leaving the house to drive for a period of reasonable time set by the Dr. And if you are CAUGHT violating that law/stipulation, and are driving impaired, then 1st offense should be a big fine, 2nd offense, double the fine plus an arrest, 3rd offense, your OUT (with#2) – PLUS lose your rights to the medical Marijuana privilege permanently. That’s the ONLY way to ensure the safe practice of using medical cannabis.
    While people might have the need and the right to use it medically, it doesn’t give them the right to MISUSE it, by getting behind the wheel of the car and endangering the lives of hundreds of others on the open road. That should be the law.
    As with prescription drugs/pain pills. Yeah…you may have a legally legit prescription for it, but that DOESN’T clear the way to allow these pill poppers the ‘right’ to take them and get behind the wheel of a car…again to endanger the lives of others. That is why the pharmacies use warning labels that say ‘DO NOT DRIVE or OPERATE MACHINERY WHILE TAKING THIS MEDICATION’. I’m pretty sure the cannabis would read the same…I wouldn’t know. It’s just as mind altering as prescription pain pills.
    Kudos to you Tom for stating your OWN personal experience with pot.This shows you are speaking/reporting from your OWN PERSONAL EXPERIENCE…and not from hearsay. These haters on here will ALWAYS have rude and negative comments no matter what you report. Such simple narrow minded people who are not interested in the TRUTH being reported in journalism these days. They are all so brainwashed in the lies of the ‘FAKE NEWS’ reporters to the extent that they don’t recognize the truth when they see OR hear it. And that’s in large a side affect of constant use of pot too. Scrambled egg brains….lmao!!!
    Well done Tom!! Just ignore the truth haters. Their opinions are filled with air…like their heads. 😀 keep up the good work! 😉

    Friday, 27 October 2017, 1:58 am
  • Great editorial, Tom. May I add that there may also be a problem with the use of the term “Evil” as in comparative Criminology we have learned that their doesn’t appear to be any universal evil. Criminal behavior in one culture is normal practice in others. People politically label a behavior or a person “Criminal”. They may pick a behavior of a minority, and pass laws to allow for the punishment of that minority. And it gains support from the fact that we pass laws that would be impossible to universally enforce. So we know we are going to use law to discriminate and treat arbitrarily.

    Friday, 27 October 2017, 12:56 am
  • The only reason marijuana is illegal, is because it would compete with the manufacturing market, due to its many uses. From car composite stronger than carbon. To making clothes and thousands of others things we use daily. Not to mention the healing aspects. Greed is the reason it’s illegal. And greed is why it’s now legal in many states.
    Let’s not follow the misinformation being published by scientist who are paid by the very people responsible for it being illegal.

  • Look up the endocannabinoid system(ECS). You’ve got one and we are all defficient.

    Some people are just idiots. It wouldn’t matter what they put into their body they would still just be an idiot… “Real news” yeah right .

    Thursday, 26 October 2017, 11:30 pm
  • people buy and smoke cigarettes, and those aren’t intoxicating. your logic is flawed.

    also, you can’t even spell “viscous” so why should anyone listen to you? your misspellings and lack of grammar show how ill suited you are for this job. your thin skin is also embarrassing for you.

  • Having done both many times in my younger days , I can confirm alcohol is far worse, yet it is legal. And no, i would not want my surgeon drunk or stoned or sleepy or a host of other things .

    Pot is like guns in a way. If you ban it, only criminals will have it. Great for private jail companies.

    Thursday, 26 October 2017, 11:16 pm
  • Great article Tom! Very informative and factual. I agree 100% and it’s very disturbing that “ Human beings “ made the choice to highlight their defense of the use of marijuana in an article involving the abuse, neglect and death of an innocent baby. I am not against the responsible use of marijuana for recreational and medical purpose but reading the article I couldn’t get past the thought of how horribly this tiny baby must have suffered in the short time he was on this earth to be in the least bit concerned with defending the use of marijuana. I feel if you can use marijuana and/or alcohol responsibly then it shouldn’t be an issue if it were legalized but smoking it or getting drunk while caring for a child is irresponsible and not only could but did contribute to a child’s death….So heartbreaking…Keep reporting Tom! You’re doing a Great job!

    • well said Lulu

      Friday, 27 October 2017, 9:05 am
    • Lulu, you said everything that I would have said, I agree 100 percent with you and Tom. Great minds think alike. Probably get backlash off that last sentence

      Friday, 27 October 2017, 9:32 am
  • Far from the violence of alcohol, I’m a exsmoker, and all I see in the way of legalization is the politics of the cash cow the courts make on fines, Tom since you have smoked in the past you can relate that there is no addiction not violence associated with JUST marijuana unless you’re a bag of Doritos! This guy had more issues than being a irresponsible pot smoker! It’s time to legalization across the board and focus on the hard drugs that actually cause serious problems, peace Tom.

    Thursday, 26 October 2017, 10:47 pm
      • Drinking alcohol can lead to poor decisions and it to can be evil and make people crazy. How many people drink alcohol and get behind the wheel of a car and end up in a fatal car accident where innocent people are killed, or when someone has had to much to drink and goes home and beats up their spouse and children.
        Marijuana can be used for medicinal purposes but alcohol can’t! Why are you so against Marijuana when Alcohol has killed and hurt people for generations but yet I don’t see your article against the evils of alcohol.

        Friday, 27 October 2017, 8:32 am
  • 40 years and counting ,but my thing is this is America right? why does where i live not give me the same rights as others!! if one is able to do it in their home state !!!why not everyone that lives on this Continent!!!!!

    Thursday, 26 October 2017, 9:37 pm
    • What about drunk America…what kind of America is that…oh yeah, I almost forgot, it is totally American to drink a Budweiser and get nice and numb…Its not at all like Marijuana right?

      Thursday, 26 October 2017, 10:55 pm

You have your opinion I have my own ,, That does not mean that I dislike you or the website Which I really LIKE the site sometimes I agree with you sometimes I don’t and guess what that’s fine Just Saying

    Thursday, 26 October 2017, 9:23 pm
  • Been smoking since I was 15, I’m 58 now. I’ve never been arrested, killed anyone or caused a bit of violence. I do not drink alcohol, pop pills or inject a single thing into my veins. Marijuana is a weed that grows naturally, not some man made poison created in some lab that slows erodes your mind and body.

    I’m kind of disappointed in your view of this whole subject Tom. Just sayin…

    Thursday, 26 October 2017, 9:20 pm
  • Regardless of anyone’s personal opinion it is an illegal drug. Regardless of your personal experience with it, it is problematic. Pot can be laced with so many other chemicals which can make it harmful and so potent. Saying all of this is to say, did you want Tom to leave out this part of the reality of what happened? Would that be appropriate reporting? Did he go into a diatribe about pot? No, he is just doing his job. When this community jumps on an insignificant part of the story and is so outraged about the pot and not the dead child, we have an issue. This is why Hernando County is consistency rated as one of the worst counties to live in, in Florida. Let’s keep it up guys let’s be dumb asses about a story that mentions pot as part of the story. Let’s continue and maybe we can live in one of the worst counties in the US to live.

    Thursday, 26 October 2017, 9:02 pm
    • i would like to know where you get your info. I live and work all over Fl. and the country for that matter. There are a lot worse places than Hernando County. Get out of your cocoon more.

    U obviously don’t know a good thing .
    Have u heard about Hillary selling NUKES to Russia??? Fire one up & think about it!

    Thursday, 26 October 2017, 8:29 pm
  • Tom as you are aware… “Can’t please all the people all the time ” … that said… Keep up the good work. I do enjoy most all your posts and reports. Not everyone can be liked 100% !! Keep doing what you’re doing … Good job..

    Thursday, 26 October 2017, 8:27 pm
  • Tom you do NOT need to explain anything. I actually didn’t like you a few yrs back after you wrote an article about me but now that I’m sober I realized that you were only stating the truth. A drug is a drug and especially if it’s in plan site that means it was in any child’s reach. They caused the deaths of there children and you stated the facts. Good reporting. If I can get past what you wrote about me then everyone else should worry about the deaths and not the words you used.
