on pot..

a 1998 study done by the National Institute of Justice found that out of the
convicts that were under the influence of drugs during the comission of
their crime, approximately 18.5% were under the influence of marijuana, and
15.2% were under the influence of cocaine or crack, and 5.6% were under the
influence of heroin.

note that the study didnt indicate whether or not the crime was violent or
not - but it's interesting that folks high on marijuana seem to be
committing (or at least getting convicted of) more crime than folks high on
crack.

growing up in a rather 'liberal' area, I knew quite a few pot users. I also
must disagree with this, having seen it happen.  Sure most people mellow
out,
but not all.  This gets even greater when the person can't get more.
