And crime has fallen dramatically for a while, although I would expect that to slow down now. Theres a statistically valid correlation between removing the lead from gasoline, and decreased crime. Turns out that as was expected lead did bad things.
genetically modified crops were introduced in the mid 90s. since then crime is way down.

thanks, monsanto.

With the exception of the cannabis using thugs who get baked on 'da chronic' and go out and commit crimes and murders.

The rest of you peaceful stoners are no threat - that's for sure.

Hmm, crime was high right before they began locking up criminals at high rates.

Who could have guessed?
