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.

Alternatively, state medical marijuana legalization may be correlated with a reduction in homicide and assault rates, net of other covariates.
