We've seen an increase in crime in Colorado, and in Seattle, but we don't know if it was the result of marijuana or not, we don't have enough data or had enough time to tell for sure, but odds are crime levels will stay about same as marijuana made up so little of the crime in the first place. The number of arrests in 2012 was a little over 12 million, the total that year of all drugs was about 1.5 million with about half of that from marijuana. But odds are a lot of those arrest wasn't only for marijuana, but that charge was add with other offences so the crime rate will stay about the same.
