This guy I was talking to said he had a bad past. His mom doesn't talk to him. He doesn't like the police and gets tense whenever they're by him. He was in juvi. He used to graffiti on walls. He vaguely told me about breaking into people's homes in the past. Did hardcore drugs. However, he decided to change his life around. He goes to school. He still smokes marijuana. He grows it in his home as well. He drives while high/buzzed. He says he takes risks too much. Despite all of that he's a gentleman, funny, kind and intellectual. Would you see this as a potential partner?

Sounds like he still has a poor behavioral present.
I wouldn't date the person (these days, though I would've in the past). I would be friends with the person and try to encourage better behavior though. It sounds like he could use someone in his life, but it sounds like he needs to focus on himself and keep the self improvement going.
I'm just one who found that years of marijuana use wasn't helpful to me. (I say the same to alcohol, games, porn.) I could have been focusing that attention on more important and more beneficial activities or hobbies. If someone could get through all of that and live a healthy and beneficial life, then that history would make this person increasingly more impressive and attractive to me.1
