“Further Studies of the Aggressive Behavior Induced by delta-9-Tetrahydrocannabinol in REM Sleep-Deprived Rats”. 
Psychopharmacology. 1977;53(2):135-145.
The aggressive behavior induced by delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol in pairs of REM sleep-deprived rats was studied in five experiments by measuring dominant and submissive behavioral patterns. When 2 R-deprived rats received 9-THC, one of the animals displayed very aggressive postures, while its partner assumed incomplete defensive postures. The behavioral alterations induced in REMdeprived rats by amphetamine, LSD-25, and pentobarbital failed to provoke defensive postures in the normal rats paired with them; however, apomorphine partially mimicked the delta-9-THC effects.
