    No. Not at all.

    I have seen people - 'friends' - attack a random woman on the street because they were high, 3 guys on this woman, if me and my brother and his girlfriend weren't there, who knows what could have happened to that woman.

    Totally legalizing it would be insane.

    Doesn't sound like something cannabis would motivate people to do. Sound's like they're just a bunch of ****s.

    I don't smoke green anymore cause I see it as a total waste of money...The effects don't justify the price, plus it just makes me feel tired and sick. I don't see any reason why it shouldn't be legal though - alcohol has far more devasting effects.

    No, I did know them quite well, they were really cool guys before they started doing weed regularly, like, before, they were good at sports, pretty average students, not amazing, but not total crap, they were just really fun to hang around with. After they started smoking weed regularly, started cutting classes to go get high, not turning up at school at all, stealing things to pay for weed etc. Then one day, when we were having around the skatepark, they started attacking a woman because she apparently tutted when they were found the back smoking weed. :/

    It could just be pure coincidence, but isn't it amazing all three of them totally change, TOTALLY change when they start getting into weed regularly, at exactly the same time as each other, exactly when they start having 2 or 3 spliffs a day, two of them become extremely violent and one slipped his mum more sleeping pills so he could steal her purse, he could have killed her.

    .....are you sure they were only doing weed? I don't mean this to be insulting or anything....just seems like there could have been something else other than weed that they were doing.....

    As far as I know, they were only doing weed, when I saw them in the ditch at school, they were only doing weed (I went down there to smoke cigarettes) and I know on the day that they attacked the woman they were only on weed. I don't know about the rest of the time, but on that day, it was only weed, yeah.

    I knew these guys, really well, they were in my classes, they were friends of mine up until half way through/end of year 10 when doing the weed started to affect them a lot. They weren't the type to go around and act like 'gangsters', even when they were on weed, they were really calm guys normally, but when on weed, they would get angrier a lot quicker, if someone looked at them funny or tutted or something along those lines. They were NEVER like that when they weren't on it. And they weren't even like 'proud' of the fact they did weed, which would make them go around acting like gangsters, they were REALLY secretive, I only knew because I went to a lot of parties with that group of people. Fair enough, you don't believe that weed can do that to people, but I saw 3 teenagers, all going to get pretty good grades, wanting to go to college or university, I saw all 3 of them burnout in a few months. It's a horrible thing to watch.

    im sorry m8 but this is bull. no known strain of pot is this strong in fact ive never even been this off on the rare occasions ive taken acid. if they were on PCP or crystal meth or sumthing i culd understand it but weed? nahh

    source: been smokin 3 years and the only thing i wanna do is love people, not hurt them weed is the peace drug

    much better than getting boozed up and starting a fite with ur best mate hmm?

    this country needs to understand that weed shuld be legalized not only for its recreational value but for the reason that a) there are huge medical benefits b) it can be used to make fuel in the oil crisis we are experiancing c) can be used to make clothes and food for livestock and d) the amount of munny the gov would make from taxing it wuld probably pull us out of the ressesion!!

    cmon ppl, get with the plan! 420!!

    I have seen people get a little bit agressive, or start trippin but yeah not seen anything like this before...and at my age and the amount I have used in the past...The most I have seen any one on really strong weed is the inability to stand or keep track on a conversation..or have the horn! But mix it with something else then yeah I can see trouble.

    I've seen exactly the same thing happen because people were drunk, yet alcohol is still legal and sold by the bucket load, limitless, to people who shouldn't be allowed near the stuff, maybe it's because the government can tax it? It's up to the persons taking the substance to control and restrict themselves.

    I read in a medical journal a few years back that weed only enhances underlying mental health issues, there was more too it than that obviously, such as the amount taken, but it's true, I know plenty of people who smoke a lot of the stuff and they're fine, I know adults who have been smoking it for years and they're fine.

    Alcohol is a much worse substance than marijuana.
