Medical Marijuana Suppliers And Users Becoming Targets Of Crime

A disturbing trend is being reported in the 14 states that allow medical marijuana. According to an Associated Press story, the users and suppliers of medical marijuana are becoming the target of pot thieves who are robbing, shooting and even murdering those who are involved with the legal growing and supplying of marijuana.

In recent months there have been dozens of cases that show criminals targeting legal marijuana growers, users and suppliers according to the AP. In California in a one-year period there were at least 50 crimes related to medical marijuana. Seven of those were classified as homicides. There seems to be a growing divide on how to handle the problem but the AP story does point out that New Mexico has a system that has been very successful and there have been no crimes reported there against medical marijuana suppliers.
