      M.J. does not make you violent, alcohol does. You do know the Reefer Madness wasn’t a documentary, right?

        Maybe that is the common response, but not always. I have known people who became more mellow when they were drinking and never violent to anyone. I have also known potheads who were irritable and even violent when they smoked. I do not believe that everyone responds in the exact same way to a drug.

          I have never seen anyone get violent after smoking weed, ever. In fact , it has the opposite effect every single time. I used to be a door man in a big nightclub in the bay area of California. I could go on all night about guys getting ten foot tall and bullet proof on liquor. We should outlaw liquor and legalize weed. The world we become a much, much more harmonious place overnight.
