Laura Stack’s 19-year-old son, Johnny, died by suicide nearly three years ago. She says the legalization of marijuana allowed Johnny to easily access high-potency marijuana concentrate that she says led to psychosis and his untimely death.
“It wasn’t until after his death, when I started writing, and researching, and forming our nonprofit, that I really understood the potency and how what he had used had ruined his mind. And, he knew it had,” Stack tells Dr. Phil on Friday’s episode, “Is America Too High on Marijuana?” “According to the National Institutes on Drug Abuse, cannabis use does cause suicidal thinking, suicide attempts, and sadly, suicide in my son.”

In the video above, Stack recalls how she learned her son had died and shares her contempt for the legalization of marijuana.
On Friday’s episode, Dr. Phil mediates a heated discussion between people on both sides who have strong opinions about the legalization of marijuana, including a retired police officer, dispensary insiders, and an ER physician. Check local listings to see where you can watch.
