Violent crime and property crime were down in the United States for the first six months of the year, the FBI reported Monday.During a recession with the largest amount of people out of work in decades? My father said crime was supposed to increase when unemployment rose? Oh weed, duh.
The rate of violent crime decreased 4.4 percent while property crime went down 6.1 percent, the FBI said in its semi-annual report on crime statistics for 2009.
Cannabis use up, alcohol, cocaine, tobacco down among young people.
Marijuana use among American adolescents has been increasing gradually over the past two years (three years among 12th graders) following years of declining use, according to the latest Monitoring the Future study, which has been tracking drug use among U.S. teens since 1975.
Imagine a world with no cannabis? I contend yes we would have rising smoking, cigarettes, cocaine, heroin, oxycontin, and violence that is out of control.
Cannabis is safer and better for the society as a whole.
Harm reduction, it works.
