“Just like regular kids”

In the wake of this horrible tragedy, I’m just waiting for the conservative aholes to blame the terrorist bombing on reefer. The prediction has been made…perhaps we could have a pool on which right wing pundit ahole does so first… I take Howie Carr! Here is a reference to reefer in an interesting article about people who knew this kid in high school.

Another acquaintance said she knew Dzhokhar from the University of Massachusetts-Dartmouth. She said he had a group of “maybe four or five” Russian-speaking friends whom he was never without. “All I really knew of them was that they smoked weed and liked to party, just like regular kids. Jahar was such a sweetheart.”

Ironically, when read in context, the person making the statement sounds accepting of reefer, and if anything she is having a hard time with the fact that someone who liked reefer could commit this horrible act. When I think about it, I kind of agree. Reefer is the least violent drug of all. But this kid may have had psychotic tendencies, which would make reefer a bad fit. Who knows if he even smoked the reef? But, mark my words this will be mentioned by conservative aholes.

Its also really strange how the person refers to Jahar as a sweetheart. As this point he appears to be a murderous bastard.
