TUCKER CARLSON (HOST):

In the aftermaths of the mass shootings in El Paso and Dayton, the country scrambled, justifiably, to understand what motivated the killers. Ideology seemed like an obvious reason and we picked that apart at some length. But it could it just be part of the answer? A toxicology report on the Dayton shooter, for example, revealed that he had several drugs in his system including cocaine and Xanax. He was also known to be a long time user of marijuana. It turns out, in fact, that many violent individuals have been avid marijuana users. Is there a connection?...

So, I don't think it's going way out on a limb to draw that connection then between cannabis use, particularly I assume chronic use and acts of violence. Why is this not something that we're pursuing more aggressively?

Thank you for enlightening me Tucker Carlson.

I am so glad to know that it is just marijuana that is causing all of the mass shootings.

At least there is no connection to alcohol, narcotics or the division, hate and ignorance fueled by the media and the internet.

I have sat through more than 500 homicide or attempted homicide hearings. Does marijuana have anything to do with the crimes?

Well, hard to say, almost all of the killers were high on weed or heavy marijuana smokers. Many of the murders were committed to get marijuana.

Pretty close to 100% of the home invasion robberies are committed by marijuana smokers and they are seeking marijuana or money to buy marijuana. I hate to shock anyone with this but robbers don't rob people to buy milk and bread for their children.

If I read a story of bizzare crazy acts like eating a mans face off, I suspect marijuana use, the public usually denies this and two months later we learn the only drug in the system of Mr. FaceEater is, THC.

We do have research that shows marijuana causes paranoid behavior in some people and it is often used with Xanax to increase the high.

The pro marijuana lobby does a great job trying to pretend that is makes you mellow, potato eating on the couch types but you have to know, all those drive by shootings in Chicago? Those are weed smokers, almost every single one of them, not too peaceful are they?

So, does it CAUSE poor behavior? Maybe, but since a large percent of our violence is committed by marijuana users high during their crimes, I think it is fair to ask that question and you can bet it does not help.

If it helped, then these weed smokers would not be committing the mass shootings.

But they are.

Obviously you have never used marijuana. It does not make you a violent person. If marijuana caused all these people you mentioned to be violent why isn't everyone in the states that have legalized it having more acts of violent behavior? Obviously the people that have committed violent crimes had problems before using marijuana. It's like the saying about guns. Guns don't kill people. People kill people. Marijuana doesn't kill people. People kill people!!!
