I saw this article and wanted to nip this in the butt, immediately. Its tragic that this young man took his own life. Tragic. This story, however, is going to now become the anecdotal cowbell of anti-pot people. “People who get high on pot can kill themselves etc, etc, etc.” I have never heard of this in my life. People are going to try and blame this on the pot, but I have a very hard time believing that was the ONLY reason he decided to jump off the balcony. You just don’t do that on pot. You don’t. No one does. He was also ripping things off walls and speaking erratically? Again, I never in my life have seen that from someone on marijuana. Just doesn’t make sense. 

Beyond this, this is the first incident we’ve heard of involving marijuana, since Colorado legalized marijuana on January 1st, 2014. That seems pretty good to me. I wonder how many DUIs and other alcohol related incidences have occurred in Colorado in that time period. Probably more than 1. So all the anti-pot jihadists just need to calm down and move along.
