I tried watching the tape all the way through when it happened, but the quality was so bad it was giving me a headache. I just tried to go off of what most people said on here about it, which was they didn't see at any point of the video where he hit or slapped her.
Marijuana isn't meth or heroin by any means, but it does mess with your brain, much like alcohol, you're right. But it also tears up your lungs, too. And people do get addicted to it. I was reading that it messes with your secondary perception of sensory information, which is more difficult for scientists to study than primary. So, who knows what it's actually doing to your brain?
This point aside, I get what you're saying. Not nearly as bad as being in a situation of pushing/shoving/hitting a woman.
