Can someone please explain this to me? Why do people commit crime? If you don't commit crime you can have good beer, good TV, good looking women, good jobs that pay good money, a soft bed, privacy, property, technology and good food.

Studies show a huge portion, I think over 80 or 90 % of crimes are related directly or indirectly to drugs.
Meaning people who commit drugs or are victims are crimes can trace it back to drug use, drug sales, or drug acquisition.
Where did you get the stats you mention? I have not learned anything about the stats being that high regarding being under the influence while committing a crime. According to NIH, 1 in 4 inmates in state prison committed a crime while under the influence, 32% of state prisoners and 26% of federal prisoners said they had committed their current offense while under the influence of drugs."

I sold illegal things when I couldn't work because I was caring for my disabled mother...
I smoked to forget some horrible things...
I put a policeman into an ambulance for daring to put his filthy pig hands on me...
Wanna know something...
I'd do it all over again.
