Five Reasons Marijuana Should be Legal – Ryan O’Bryan’s List – Reason Three
#3 – Weed Makes People Happy and Less Violent
Name one time you’ve seen two people high on pot in a fist-fight over something stupid. You can’t. Because it doesn’t happen.
I have no scientific evidence to back this up, but I don’t need it. To reiterate, I’ve never smoked pot in my life, but I’ve been around people who have so I’ve witnessed first hand a pot smoker’s utter lack for anything requiring physical exertion. They don’t want to get off the couch much less swing their fists at another person. If they toke up long enough, they get to a point where they’re almost too lazy to even lift the joint, pipe, or bong to their lips.
The difference between a drunk guy and a guy baked on weed is that the drunk guy will get mad at you because he thought you were checking out his girlfriend. This will inevitibly lead to a puffed chest like a rooster defending his chicky-mamma’s and a challenge to “step outside”. The stoner on the other hand will thank you for your approval of his lady and ask if you want to make out with her. It’s all about spreading the love.
