Study: People who regularly smoke cannabis are nearly three times more violent

Antifa violence doesn’t come only from ideology, it’s the result of brain damage from cannabis. They want to destroy America because they themselves are destroyed and need sensations.

  • A study of 300,000 teens and young adults found cannabis use alters the brain 
  • Addicts may also suffer withdrawal symptoms that could cause anger problems

From the Daily Mail:

People who regularly smoke cannabis are almost three times more likely to commit a violent offence as those who abstain from the drug, new research has found.

Scientists involved in a landmark study of almost 300,000 teenagers and young adults believe that over time, prolonged cannabis use profoundly alters the brain, making the user less able to control their temper.

In addition, the research found addicts may also suffer from withdrawal symptoms, making them irritable and prone to lashing out.

Isn’t it an amazingly accurate description of what we are witnessing for the last 12 days?

• Psychiatrist Professor Sir Robin Murray, a world-leading expert on the neurological impact of the drug, said the link between cannabis use and violence was a ‘neglected area’.

Commenting on the study’s findings, he said: ‘This is not a surprise for those of us who follow the scientific literature or see patients who heavily use cannabis. However, it may be a surprise to the many who think cannabis is a chill-out, anti-violence drug.”

• Forensic psychiatrist Dr Samrat Sengupta, of Broadmoor Hospital, told the Old Bailey that the student’s heavy cannabis habit had triggered a genetic psychotic illness.

• A team from Montreal University in Canada discovered that 26 out of 30 studies showed a tendency towards higher levels of violence among cannabis users.

When they pooled the results – meaning they were looking at a combined group of 296,815 teens and adults under 30 – they found users were more than twice as likely (2.15 times) to have committed a violent offence as non-users.

Among ‘persistent heavy users’, the risk of violence was 2.81 times higher.

Writing in the American Journal Of Psychiatry, they said: ‘This study suggests that cannabis use appears to be a contributing factor in the perpetration of violence.’

Antisocial behaviours

Citing neurological research, they said cannabis use during adolescence ‘may cause deterioration of neural structures associated with inhibition and sensation-seeking’, adding: ‘Such neural deficits are expected to limit one’s ability to suppress the urge to act out violently and heighten the risk of developing antisocial behaviours in adulthood.’
