The transcripts of the Grand Jury testimonies about the shooting of unarmed teenager Michael Brown by Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson.

The Delta-9 is psychoactive, that means it has an affect. So when you have a drug that is psychoactive in your blood stream, it is having an affect.

You can argue, well, more effect, less effect, you can argue that yes, but it is definitely having an affect on you. When you start looking at it in terms of the overall, well, marijuana generally, you know, you smoke a joint and you chill out, that's generally what happens. Okay does that have to happen? No, it doesn't. There is a lot of other variables that are associated with it that depends on your basic chemistry, your basic who you are as it were.

So that it can have somewhat different affects. Add to that the question of dose. If you take, take alcohol. You have a glass of wine with dinner, okay, or whatever with dinner, that's one way of doing it.

You are getting the drug, it is psychoactive, it is having an affect on you. Now instead you have a quart with dinner, a quart of scotch. Well, that's going to produce a very different effect. It is a function of the concentration, how much goes in you.

Same thing is true with marijuana. You can get desirable affects one level, but if you get a massive dose, and you have to remember marijuana is not regulated. So you don't know the purity you are getting. You don't know if you are getting Illinois ditch-weed or Acapulco Gold, for lack of a better example, okay. So it could be very low purity or very high purity.

Again, the same thing can happen. It is like having a glass of wine with dinner versus a bottle of scotch. You can get very different affects depending on how much you use.
