Correlation != causation. I suspect if you test murder suspects upon arrest, a majority of them will be wearing blue jeans. The reason that no one wants to face up to the fact that blue jeans are the overwhelming contributor to what we have in our jails today, is because the relationship is spurious. Someone willing to commit murder will also be willing to disregard laws against drug usage.

I suspect (no I know for a fact without being told) that alcohol has a greater role in the murder rate than illegal drugs in the murder rate. Nevertheless, please find some research on the mind-altering effects of blue jeans (particularly on judgement), and then get back to me.
