Couples that Smoke Marijuana Show Less Violence, Study

Married couples who frequently smoke cannabis together are less likely to engage in domestic violence than those who consume the drug less regularly, a new study has suggested.

“Couples in which both spouses used marijuana frequently reported the least frequent IPV [intimate partner violence] perpetration,” the study concludes. The things controlled in the study was demographic variables, behavioral problems, and alcohol use.

In the study that started in 1996. Authors studied the data from 634 couples over nine years of marriage and find a significantly lower incidence of domestic violence among married couples who smoke pot.

Common sense would draw us to a conclusion that stoned people are happy, and happy people do not fight.

Since some of the data used in the study is now nearly two decades old, the authors would like to see if these findings would hold true among current newlyweds, particularly in light of “the trend toward marijuana decriminalization in the United States and potentially more positive attitudes toward its use”. There are two US states that have legalized Marijuana since 2013 and an additional eleven that have dicriminalized it for medicinal use.

On the official White House web page, Office of National Drug Control Policy, says that “Marijuana is a topic of significant public discourse in the United States, and while many are familiar with the discussions, it is not always easy to find the latest, research-based information on marijuana to answer to the common questions about its health effects, or the differences between Federal and state laws concerning the drug. Confusing messages being presented by popular culture, media, proponents of “medical” marijuana, and political campaigns to legalize all marijuana use perpetuate the false notion that marijuana is harmless. This significantly diminishes efforts to keep our young people drug free and hampers the struggle of those recovering from addiction.”

However, the authors of the study says that “More research also needs to be done on other dimensions of marijuana use, including abuse, dependence, and withdrawal, all behavioral states that may have different effects on how spouses interact with each other.”

Perhaps most significantly, the Buffalo study was funded partially by a grant from the National Institute for Drug Abuse, which is strongly criticized by marijuana reformers. NIDA is known as organization which stand strongly against marijuana legalization so the fact they fund studies like this one, suggests that the wind of change is starting to blow.

    1. In the prohibitionist’s world, anybody who consumes the slightest amount of marijuana responsibly in the privacy of their own homes are “stoners” and “dopers” that need to be incarcerated in order to to protect society.

      In their world, any marijuana use equates to marijuana abuse, and it is their God given duty to worry about “saving us all” from the “evils” of marijuana use.

      Who are they to tell us we can’t choose marijuana, the safer choice instead of alcohol for relaxation, after a long, hard day, in the privacy of our own homes?

      People who use marijuana are smart, honest, hard working, educated, and successful people too, who “follow the law” also.(except for their marijuana consumption under it’s current prohibition of course) .

      Not the stereotypical live at home losers prohibitionists make us out to be. We are doctors, lawyers, professors, movie stars, and politicians too.

      Several Presidents of The United States themselves, along with Justin Trudeau, Bill Gates, and Carl Sagan have all confessed to their marijuana use. As have a long and extensive list of successful people throughout history at one point or other in their lives.

      Although, that doesn’t mean a damned thing to people who will make comments like “dopers” and “stoners” about anybody who uses the slightest amount of Marijuana although it is way safer than alcohol.

      To these people any use equals abuse, and that is really ignorant and full of hypocrisy. While our society promotes, glorifies, and advertises alcohol consumption like it’s an All American pastime.

      There is nothing worse about relaxing with a little marijuana after a long, hard day, than having a drink or two of alcohol.

      So come off those high horses of yours. Who are you to dictate to the rest of society that we can’t enjoy Marijuana, the safer choice over alcohol, in the privacy of our own homes?

      We’ve worked real hard our whole lives to provide for our loved ones. We don’t appreciate prohibitionists trying to impose their will and morals upon us all.

      Has a marijuana user ever tried to force you to use it? Probably not. So nobody has the right to force us not to either.

      Don’t try to impose your morality and “clean living” upon all of us with Draconian Marijuana Laws, and we won’t think you’re such prohibitionist hypocrites.

      Grampa, well he wasn’t trainable, YOU ARE! Drop the POT reference !
      My Cannabis deserves more repect. Are tomatoes anything less because you don’t like them?! I used my Endocannabinoid system to quit your Booze as well as prescription poisons from the Swamy! Alcohol was the gateway to Dr drugs.
      The Vedas spoke of couples in crisis and recommended the cannabis also.
      The Vedas are a few yr old I’m fairly sure. The only times the fashion doll wasn’t arguing n crying-drunk was when she was Cannabised and that was not time enough! It got so that she would bring home booze n I’d leave with the child till she passed-out. Great-Times Eh! Apparently she still is boozing n when I yak’d with her the last time I detected ” Wet-Brain”syndrome . Cancer n diabetes run rampant in her family but they trust the quaks not nature.
      I am watching her family wasting-away because of that. I knew about the effects of Cannabis n couples but her family n drinking are inseparable.
      Perhaps her Lazy-Quak could have recommended it?!
      “Pills, Solid form of Booze”!
      Smoking cannabis is OK I guess but I prefer to eat noncarboxulated so that I don’t get high, just balanced instead. And before you bitch at me here you better balance your system first because I do know what I’m going on about!
