Recent research has shown that legalizing marijuana reduces violence and trafficking associated with the illegal drug trade thereby reducing the power and wealth of cartels and drug gangs. On top of reducing drug related crime, legalizing marijuana has shown to be a meaningful avenue of raising tax revenue.

As was previously implied, there are two major aspects in drug related crime: possesion and/or sale of drugs. Crime committed to finance drugs. In the first case crime is reduced because possession is no longer a crime. Most sale is no longer a crime. People are no longer arrested just for possession of drugs.

This leads to a decrease in drug related crime in the Mexican border area. Our results indicate that decriminalization of the production and distribution of drugs may lead to a reduction in violence in markets where organized drug criminals meet licit competition. In other words, legalize drugs, and you get less violent crime.

Yes, Legalization would bring in a decrease in the existing crime rate. With the legalization of drugs, Instantly a huge percentage of the common public can strip themselves of the tittle of "Criminals" and replace it with the word "Victims" (Don't take this negatively, Im refereing to people who are addicted/abusing).

Second, drug prohibition creates high levels of crime. Addicts are forced to commit crimes to pay for a habit that would be easily affordable if it were legal.

One of the primary arguments used by those who oppose marijuana legalization or decriminalization is that both could/will lead to increases in crime. Many supporters of legalization/decriminalization would counter this argument by saying (among other counter-arguments) that while there may be an increase in marijuana related crime initially, these numbers would level out as society adapts to the new normal.
