Well this is probably true since drugs make most people unfit to work and hold a job. Thus these desperate drug addicts will turn to violence to get the money they need to purchase their daily dose. That's why crime and drugs go together. It actually really depends on which drug you are using. Marijuana is known to chill people down and make them rather peaceful or unmotivated. Drugs with a higher addiction potential can easily be associated with violence though.

alcohol plays a role in many crimes.:D!!!! Drugs and alcohol cause the brain to lose some of it's perceptive and problem solving ability, because alcohol is a poison and all drugs contain some kind of poison. Losing the ability to solve problems, people may become confused or angry, and this may lead to shouting and violence. Drugs are also fought over quite a bit, therefore drugs are causing the violence.
