Marijuana Legalized In Colorado Is To Blame For NYC Murders, Obviously. – 844-292-1318 Colorado legal aid

At a news conference Monday, New York Police Department commissioner Bill Bratton blamed a slight uptick in violence in the city (45 homicides at this point last year, versus 54 this year) on marijuana.

‘The seemingly innocent drug that’s been legalized around the country. In this city, people are killing each other over marijuana more so than anything that we had to deal with [in the] 80s and 90s with heroin and cocaine . . . In some instances, it’s a causal factor. But it’s an influence in almost everything that we do here.’” *

  1. You would think with the Commissioner being where he is in life, that he would have done the research but this old man has never once cracked a book in his life. It's sad to think he's gotten as far as he has with the police department when he has NO idea of what he's talking about.

  2. they should legalize it. release all the prisoners that got caught with marijuana that are non-violent. i don't smoke and drink only on special occasions. like cig or beers. your choice.

  3. Yup! That's just the establishment trying to oppress the evolution of our country into becoming more "free" than ever before.

  4. Sounds like not having enough weed is making people violent and it makes sense. Humans are supposed to use cannabis. We have receptors in our bodies specifically for cannabis. So not having weed is going to make peopel act like new yorkers.

  5. Of course violence may arise when people owe each other currency. It has nothing with the currency itself to do. Or should we perhaps BAN MONEY?

  6. this story was made up by those tobacco lovers.. anyone who blames weed is a tobacco user.. fact look it up..
    they rather have people on tobacco and booze then someone on weed

  7. People making a lot of money so they fight. Colorado does NOT HAVE A PROBLEM. NYC HAS THE PROBLEM BECAUSE NOT LEGALIZED.

  8. The cops are probably freaking out. that if people become less and less violent due to marijuana use, they might have to start laying off useless officers, close down prisons. Income from petty crime would be drastically reduced…we are a war nation and crime unfortunately is just another business to fund private agendas….

  9. Every single politician judge and cops are all operating outside the law! They have no respect for the constitution and are god dammed fascists!

  10. It doesn't matter to me about the legalities or moralities of pot  I smoked pot as a youth, and if I could turn back the hands of time, pot would be the thing I would not do.. AND, I've done every drug in book.  Long term, pot dulls the brain ( watch my videos for proof ) because it messes with our brain chemistry in a way that nature did not intend.  It's not as destructive as sugar, but close. Remember, all the youngsters touting pot..  wait till you get older.. you will notice a less than sharp brain. Believe it or not, heroin is better cause it merely releases endorphins.  Anyway..  your brain is very precious, so be careful of what you use:)  

  11. Being pro weed but anti-gun. 

    "It's not the weed". "Don't blame the weed." 

    It's true, it's not the weed. It's the people. Likewise with guns. It's those who can't use these things responsibly. 

    Let's impose background checks and waiting periods on marijuana, under the basis that it may "save lives". 

    So much hypocrisy on this channel. 

  12. So, people are killing each other over weed in places where it is illegal. Want to know where people are not killing each other over marijuana? Places where it is legal.

  13. This isn't a weed issue…its a "I want to keep my job because I'm fucking incompetent" issue.  Nice piece.

  14. “If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State” – Joseph Goebbels

    “A lie can travel half way around the world while the truth is putting on its shoes” – Mark Twain

  15. Bratton is the perfect example of why so many Americans have come to hate everything law enforcement stands for.

    The man is a fucking joke.
