    ... The most obvious way that cannabis fuels violence in psychotic people is through its tendency to cause paranoia.

That's fascinating, coming from a paper that crusades for homosexual marriage and runs "wedding" announcements of homosexual couples. Obviously, the media are ignoring this "powerful force" of opposition to homosexual marriage, and have done so for years. In all 11 states, Rove noted, anti-homosexual marriage amendments or...
