Terrorist suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev liked to get down smoking marijuana says his friends, and classmates at the University of Massachusetts-Dartmouth where the alleged bomber lived in a sophomore residence.
"Tsarnaev was funny, sarcastic, liked to party and frequently reeked of marijuana, said students," according to USA Today.
Two explosions that devastated the Boston Marathon April 15th that killed 3 people, and left more than 260 injured were alleged to have been carried out by Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 19, and his brother, Tamerlan Tsarnaev, 26.
According to Patrick Yaghoobian, 20, who lived next door to Dzhokhar in the sophomore residence indicated the alleged bomber smoked pot a lot, and reeked of its smell daily.
Whether Dzhokhar's indulgence in smoking pot had anything to do with his alleged behavior in the bombing would be a huge leap of the imagination. However, there may be some who would swear by the drug's persuasive ability to make people turn ugly.
Dzhokhar's brother, Tamerlan is probably the one responsible for leading his younger brother astray, but that is speculation as well. Tamerlan was killed in a scuffle with police Friday the 19th, and his brother faces criminal charges that could land him on a table with liquid death pumped into him, or subject to some other form of death penalty device.
