The number of unprovoked biting attacks is truly shocking.

God dammit, Daily Mail. Now I have to question the existence of marijuana.

 And after a lifetime spending tens of thousands of dollars on it!

Oh now you've done it. A sacred cow has been insulted and all the addicts are going to come pouring in to defend their habit.

abhorrent1: They're using schizophrenics as examples?

While researching skin cancer rates in the African American community back in college, we would only accept  albinos.  This totally makes sense to me.

Nick Nostril: Delta1212:

Heard plenty of stories, sure, but despite being around plenty of drunk people, I've never been around a drunk person who was being violent.

You hanging out in the wrong bars. In my younger days, I saw plenty of drunken brawls. My experience being around MJ is more limited, but the parties I went to where it was abundant were quite peaceful.

/ anecdotal

I was at a party when I was in highschool where a kid knocked over some guys weed while walking past him. He got his ass kicked pretty bad.

I'm no journalist but it seems to me that the violence was caused by the schizophrenia.  I don't know, maybe I'm just reading it wrong.  After all, the Daily Mail's reporting is world-renowned for its accuracy.

rcain: Oh boy, another scientific study that will be countered by another scientific study that says the exact opposite

These made for Media  "studies" need to be banned

Or at least studied.

Mercutio74: Destructor: skinnycatullus: I traded in my xanax for weed. I'm not going back, because the benefits remain even when I'm not high. I don't even remember the last time I had a panic attack, and I used to have to take xanax every time I left the house.

I think the takeaway here is that people should never read the Daily Fail.

I stand corrected.

Gotta evaluate cannabis like any other drug. On a case by case basis. How's that grab you? :-)

I'm not sure it needs to be that specific.  But if you're going to use a study to draw conclusions about a population, you have to sample that entire population not a very specific subset of it that may have an atypical reaction to what you're testing.

That would like sampling farkers and determining that 90% are socially awkward overweight neckbeards therefore 90% of the general population is socially awkward overweight neckbeards.

Mugato: That shiat doesn't agree with me. I'm a raging drunk but I don't touch weed. But I know a few potheads and they're the most mellow people I know. causation/correlation, all that shiat. Maybe violent people also smoke weed. That doesn't mean that weed causes people to be violent. This is shiat spewed out by the pharmaceutical industry, that causes a lot more damage that weed.

I've been around a LOT of pot smokers since circa 1995.  Never once have I seen a violent act.  Anecdotal and all that but yeah I don't see it.
