I understand that completely, but I don't agree that THC significantly alters your consciousness to the point of doing things that are completely out of character for the user.

THC is not like meth or lsd or pcp... it simply doesn't affect people in that way. Add alcohol to the equation, then I'd buy it.

I still think Zimmerman should be considered not guilty, because there is plenty of doubt surrounding this whole situation.
