“Tell Your Children: The Truth about Marijuana, Mental Illness and Violence” is an eye-opening report from award-winning author and former New York Times reporter, Alex Berenson. At the Times, he covered everything from the drug industry to Hurricane Katrina; in 2003 and 2004, he served two stints as a correspondent in Iraq, an experience that led him to write The Faithful Spy, his debut novel, which won the Edgar Award from the Mystery Writers of America for Best First Novel. He left the Times in 2010 to devote himself to writing fiction. But conversations with his wife led him to begin researching the science around cannabis and mental illness, a project that became the book Tell Your Children, published in January 2019. Berenson reveals the link between teenage marijuana use and mental illness, and a hidden epidemic of violence cause by the drug – facts the media have ignored as the United States rushes to legalize cannabis.
