Pot becomes legal and the crime rate went up. Go figure.

Pot hasn't been legal long enough to have a clear idea how the crime rate has been effected.

and where is your research data that says they're correlated?  just because two things happen simultaneously does not mean one is related the other at all (and really, marijuana has not been legal long enough to have any long-term knowledge about the social ramifications).

three robberies in one week isnt a fucking clue for you? They robbed pot stores which are holding a shit load of cash? No fucking clue at all? Maybe you should put down the effing pipe?

That probably has more to do with many banks not wanting to get involved in the legal mess of having customers who are still technically breaking federal laws, so people know that MJ dispensaries have a lot of cash on hand. If it were completely legal at a federal level, the business owners could actually put their profits in a bank.

It's been legal for like 3 months. It's not possible to know how the crime rate was effected.

you have no logical thinking skills, do you?

three pot stores were robbed in a week.  so where are your numbers that crime has increased?  nowhere. there is no data that crime has increased, it may simply have been displaced from one victim to another. 

but you go ahead thinking what you think.  you can't teach the wilfully ignorant.

It was/is a bad idea to legalize pot.
