Drugs are a currency for criminals, legalize it will solve many many problems.

Maybe if these f#cking morons hadn't implemented massive cuts to the Police force then there wouldn't be an epidemic of knife crime in the first place.
There are lots of other factors but this one alone was a really, really bad decision...

Blaming police cuts is lame, the Metropolitan Police in London are the most resourced in the UK, while Devon and Cornwall (my area) are one of the least resourced but we don't stab each other.
It's a cultural issue of thugs and #ty communities.
Don't blame poverty either, plenty of poor people in my area but for some reason we aren't so stabby.
