Abstract [en]

The end of the nineties and the start of the second millennium marked rapid change in legislature and attitudes toward marijuana. A controversial and tense debate has been ongoing since California was the first state to legalize medical use of marijuana in 1996, followed by several other states in rapid succession. We seek to inform policy makers of the impact of medical marijuana laws on federal crimes. Using longitudinal panel data comparing violent and property rates we estimate the the effect of passing a medical marijuana law onaforementioned crimes.
