According to pioneering research, marijuana users are more prone to committing violent crimes.

A study by five researchers from institutes that are based in Montreal Canada, have found that marijuana use increased violent tendencies.

The researchers examined the lives of 1,136 men and women who were patients in psychiatric hospitals in Massachusetts, Missouri, and Pittsburgh. After the patients had been discharged, records were kept and done every ten weeks for a year.

At each of the checks, patients who had been using cannabis were almost two and a half times more likely to turn to violence opposed to those who did not use marijuana.

The new research warns that for regular marijuana use, there is an increased risk of using violence against other people. The violent acts from the studies included assaults, attacks with weapons, and rapes.
