Sol Pais "manhunt": Schools across Denver area closed as FBI, police seek Florida woman

So this 18 year old who is some kind of Columbine shooters fan came here from Florida for the 20th anniversary and immediately bought at least one gun, so they've shut down schools all over the state while they look for her.

PS: The governor just signed a red flag law, and a bunch of sheriffs are saying they won't enforce it, so I don't think I have to tell you what loons on the internet will be saying about these developments.

My friend isn't sure what a red flag law implies. What would be the best way to explain it?

A red flag law is a law that allows the government to take someone's guns temporarily as an emergency measure if they have reason to think they pose an immediate threat. There is a huge amount of pushback on the law, including several sheriffs saying they refuse to comply.

Colorado's red flag gun bill signed by Polis, goes into effect Jan. 1

It's over. She apparently went up into the mountains and offed herself.

ETA: The wingnuts did not disappoint.

Of course they need to oppose it! They can't plant a gun on everybody they shoot.

This is awesome in a number of way, foremost the scheduling system is bullshit and should be dismantled, That psilocybin is schedule 1 along with marijuana is just a joke given similar to marijuana someone would need to really really try to hurt themselves through overdose as there may not be a real LD50 for it. Obviously the hallucinations and life changing experience can hurt people and occasionally has led to suicide so they need to be used under supervision but otherwise it's one of the least harmful drugs around. Especially when compared to meth, cocaine, alcohol, opiods, etc. things like psilocybin don't even breach the bottom of the list.

The next biggest thing is that as more research is done, we could put the many years of stumbling and poking about in psychopharmacology and depression. Many depression medications target the same receptors as Psilocybin and are looking to do similar things, however since the super simple version, psilocybin has been banned they've been scrambling to find safe medications that provide relief but not hallucinations.

Many others aren't so blatantly but I mean, really!
Approved in the last decade antidepressant Viibryd™


Bufotenine, Schedule 1 hallucinogen


Psilocybin


Something looks really familiar there in the top approved drug, but don't worry, it doesn't make you question the need for war, like the bottom two.
