The fact that marijuana is illegal is the reason for the associated
crime. If marijuana were decriminalized, what would be the rationale
for one grower to assault another grower, or a hiker? ... It would be
like mangos or tomatoes; how often do people sneak into others' yards
to steal those? ... If we take the crime out of marijuana, the
associated crimes go away.
