The Effect Of Medical Marijuana Laws On Crime | Medical Marijuana and Crime
Relying on U.S. state panel data, researchers in Texas analyzed the association between state medical marijuana legalization (MML) and state crime rates for all Part I offenses collected by the FBI. The results did not indicate a crime exacerbating effect of MML on any of the Part I offenses. Alternatively, state medical marijuana legalization may be correlated with a reduction in homicide and assault rates, net of other covariates.
