BREAKING: Charleston Shooting Suspect Was Violent Marijuana Addict
Roof created a website this year called the Last Rhodesian, a reference to the white-ruled African country, which fought a bitter civil war against black majority rule before it became Zimbabwe. In photos posted to the website, Roof is seen wearing a jacket with the flags of Rhodesia and apartheid-era South Africa on the breast of his jacket.Both of these Countries are known marijuana havens where some of the best pot in the world is grown.
The website features a manifesto where Roof wrote he was radicalized via the Internet following the legalization of pot in Colorado. Roof wrote he researched "marijuana violence," which took him to the website of High Times magazine.
"I just shot up some of the best weed I ever had". Roof wrote, which should eliminate any doubt about his motive.
Roof reportedly withdrew from family and friends in recent years, dropping out of high school in tenth grade.
John Mullins, who went to school with Roof, told The Daily Beast that he remembers him as being “kind of wild.”
“He used pot heavily a lot,” Mullins said. “It was obviously harder than pills. He was like a pill popper, from what I understood. Like Xanax, and stuff like that.He used the pills to level off from the pot."
Roommate Dalton Tyler told Fox News that Roof was “planning something like that for six months.But he just kept getting high and forgetting about it”
“He was big into segregation and other stuff,” Tyler said. “He said he wanted to start a civil war. He said he was going to do something like that and then kill himself.”
According to Roof’s grandfather and Meeks, the man's family gave him money for his birthday in Shelby, North Carolina, which it is believed he used to purchase a .45-caliber Glock pistol. (Roof said at his first court appearance on Friday he was not employed.#CharlestonShooting
