Marijuana legalisation causing violent crime to fall in US states, study finds

Rates of assault and murder decreasing in regions near Mexican border where cannabis use has been partially legalised

Judith Vonberg
Monday 15 January 2018 17:26

The legalisation of marijuana for medical purposes has led to a significant reduction in violent crime in several US states bordering Mexico, according to new research.

The study, published in The Economic Journal, found that the rate of violent crime – including robberies, murders and aggravated assaults – fell by 12.5 per cent in counties close to the border after the introduction of medical marijuana laws (MMLs).

“MMLs allow people to grow and cultivate marijuana plants legally within the US,” Professor Evelina Gavrilova, one of the study’s authors, told The Independent.

“This means that people don’t need to buy illegal marijuana anymore so drug trafficking organisations (DTOs) have far fewer customers.”

Hmm, yet another article in a UK paper that COMPLETELY refutes the bullshit that Francis is peddling, and it's LOGICAL to boot!

"Crime goes down when there's no value in being criminal..." how ridiculously common-sense.

No WONDER it makes no sense to Francis! :D

You can call bullshit all you like :) But then you can also look at the numerous studies, both in the US and Canada, proving that violent crime is much reduced where marijuana is legal.

And it makes perfect sense, to boot... nearly all crime related to marijuana is actually related to illegal trafficking, law enforcement and the growth and movement of illegal marijuana. Make it legal, you take away the incentive for criminal activity.

Unless of course you're referring to the violent assault of the refrigerator about an hour in, but that's a totally different beast laugh

Exercise your common sense for a moment and see what it tells you.

Re: Marijuana legalisation causing violent crime to fall in US states, study finds
Of course. It's so fucking simple. Take cannabis out of the hands of gangs, dealers, cartels, etc, and put it in legit stores and violent crime goes down.

It's not like dispensaries are going to get in a shoot out over turf wars. It's not like a dispensary is going to shoot someone for a deal gone wrong.

People against cannabis legalization either profit from it's illegal status (private prisons, police budgets dedicated to fighting weed, illegal dealers, cartels) or are absolutely retarded.

If it is no longer a crime, then there is no criminality.

There are always going to be thieves and people with ill will towards others, but cannabis isn't a criminal thing in itself.

Making cannabis illegal is like outlawing cheesecake. It's awesome and people will break the "law" to consume it.

But, to be fair, cannabis is actually really good for you in moderation and cheesecake is just really good.
Things are bad enough, there is no need to make anything up.

"If one understands that socialism is not a share-the-wealth program, but is in reality a method to consolidate and control the wealth, then the seeming paradox of super-rich men promoting socialism becomes no paradox at all. Instead it becomes the logical, even the perfect tool of power-seeking megalomaniacs. Communism, or more accurately, socialism, is not a movement of the downtrodden masses, but of the economic elite." -- Gary Allen, 1971

You may want to check those facts, sister. Nobody's robbing pot shops for a fix, and even if they WERE, the FACTS are that crime rates are dropping. I question your "facts," but even were they true, that would be a small bump in crimes in one sector being offset by a HUGE drop in crimes in another.

A pot shop getting robbed VS 15 dead in a machine gun shootout with Cartel VS local drug growers? Do the math.

As for DUIs, they have already documented AND admitted that they were not prepared for the legalization of pot, and have no real weathervane for charging so many people have gotten pot - related DUIs that were not actually DUIs. Hence the governor pardoning those and all other pot related misdemeanors, or did you miss that part?

I've posted facts, you're having an opinion based on.. I dunno, you live in a bad neighborhood? Well, much as your HIGHLY SOUGHT AFTER opinion may be the cat's ass, I think I'll stick with ACTUAL facts.

Thanks though!

i have some family in colorado.

they said "yeah people like legal weed but you wouldn't believe the rise in criminals!"

i asked "what kind of criminals? you'd think it would be less since pot smokers would no longer be considered criminals".

they said "well, i just mean, we aren't used to dealing with the kinds of people who smoke pot."

so in other words, anti-weed people still think of weed smokers as "criminals", therefore crime has risen in colorado.

lmao

Oregon has so much pot it's price drop 50% and may drop another 35 to 50% growers are quitting. they grew 1/2 pound for every person who live in the state this year. so making pot legal made pot worthless. Who would have ever dreamed.


make it all legal. it will all be worthless.
