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

No, no, no, you bring up an important point. That the same amount of a drug affects people differently. And I'm just saying in my experience, I've written books about drug abuse, drug abuse in general beyond from my experience with heroin addicts and alcoholics in treatment programs and I'm just, I just think that if somebody on ectasy or was having hallucinations on LSD might fight with a police officer. Somebody on heroin would go to sleep before fighting with a police officer, somebody on marijuana, I haven't, it affects people differently. I think the chances of somebody taking marijuana and fighting with a police officer and just explaining it on that basis, that might be relative for other reasons why he fights with a police officer, but that's not been my experience.

I'm not an expert in finding marijuana, but I think I'm an expert in dealing with people who have spent a lifetime in smoking marijuana in these different programs.
