My family is currently in the process of helping our 17-year-old son, who is currently in a mental facility from THC psychosis. We are heartbroken.
He was first taken to the ER on December 8, 2023. He was panicked and paranoid. Drug tests were done, and he tested positive for THC and nothing else. He was combative and taken to a Behavioral facility. While in there, he was put on an antipsychotic for two days and then a depressant and was released.
We brought him home, and for the three days he was home, it was clear he was not well. We took him back to the ER. This time, the psychosis was worse. He was confused and was trying to leave. At one point, he was tased because he was not coherent and responding to the staff’s commands. He was then transported to another facility, where he is starting another antipsychotic today.
Nothing is worse for a parent to see a mental decline in their child who was otherwise a good kid with good grades, in choir, and held a job. I am scared because I can not be there with him to hold him, keep him warm, and comfort him. He is so confused, and I pray to God he recovers. I am so scared. I am on a mission to pull these dangerous marijuana products from the shelves, and I am more than willing to speak on it. I need help for my son.
