USA. Colorado crime rates drop 10% since weed was legalised



Latest Police crime data from Colorado has shown that crime has dropped 10% since legal cannabis sales began.  This is a huge blow to anti-cannabis campaigners who were analysing the data and hoping to show a correlation between increased cannabis availability and crime.  
Crima data from Denver authorities shows that overall crime levels dropped by 10.6 per cent, while violent crimes including sexual assault and homicide fell by about 5 per cent in total. Meanwhile, property crime such as motor theft fell by around 11 per cent in the city as a whole.   Meanwhile taxes continue to accumulate from cannabis sales and the ‘experiment’ to see whether civilised society can tolerate legal cannabis continues, without any apparent problems.
