The Main Source of Trinidad and Tobago's Crime Problem

The recent upsurge in crime although unfortunate was very much predictable and is as a direct result of flawed public policy. 

The majority of murders are as a direct result of gang warfare related to the illegal drug trade, made illegal by the state. No illegal drugs, no widespread illegal drug activity, turf wars, bribery, corruption, money laundering, wastage of police resources etc etc.

Trinidad & Tobago Suffers Severe Consequences From Drug Prohibition

Uruguay should be congratulated for its bold move to decriminalize marijuana use. Certainly, the eventual successes they realize will form a case study for other countries to substantiate what they likely already know intuitively, but lack the political fortitude to implement. 

The fact remains that Trinidad & Tobago will never stop the production and consumption of marijuana, because despite the high price and legal consequences related to prosecution, persons still insist on buying and selling the herb.
