Marijuana, the Demon Cause of Crime.
The O. this morning, June 17,2009, provided an example of the common sort of drug war propaganda which tries to get us to believe that marijuana use explains a lot of criminal conduct. The story was of two teen-agers that went on a spree vandalizing property with fascist symbols. The article gratuitously points out that they had recently used marijuana. (The implication being that one should immediately realize that the cause of such deviant conduct could only be marijuana.)
