I doubt that you would continue or become more upset... It will not make you try to kill someone or anything like that. With that being said it also helps with the crime rate. When a grown man is fired from his job and he has to face paying bills, keeping food in the house, and clothes on everyone’s back, naturally he will be stressed out. In a time like that if he were allowed to smoke without breaking the law, maybe he would not have gone down to the corner store and robbed them because he felt too overwhelmed. Or the postal worker that went “postal” might not have if he was
