    Weed is not the reason why someone is violent. Booze is far more likely to be behind aggressive behaviour. Other drugs can also cause aggressive behaviour but booze is the main culprit. Graham's focus on weed as a problem at the concert is incorrect. It was very likely drunkeness that caused the issues seen.

    I was at the stadium last night with my daughter and it was unbelievable the amount of drugs that was being taken and smoked and security just stood and watched. It's a wonder someone wasn't killed there last night. Young people almost everywhere you looked smoking dope and drinking...and then when Mac Miller hit the stage they went nuts.....I seen security take this young fella out around 10 and they never done anything else until one young fool jumped up on stage, and Mac Miller's body guard took care of him right quick.....flicked him around like a rag doll and a couple of body slams on the stage before security took him out....that was at the end of the show.....If Mile One can't put security in place to control the crowd they shouldn't be allowed to host these type of events.......for a group of young fellas to be allowed to hand around a bag of joints amongst themselves and smoke them right in front of security, which happened right at the fencing in the front of the stage, I think Mile One's problems have only just begun. If they are going to allow this to occur, then change the name to "Bob Marley's Mile One Stadium"

    There were many young people half drunk on booze and/or high on drugs at Mile One before the Mac Miller concert even started. Those in authority must realize it's only a matter of time before there's a serious incident at Mile One at this type of concert. They must also realize that, without an RNC presence and the use of metal detectors, the personal safety of staff and patrons, which should be a top priority, is at higher risk.
