A Startling Statistic

I’VE LONG BEEN AWARE THAT, in Cincinnati, if you control for trafficking in illegal drugs, the crime rate drops to virtually zero. That is, to say, most of the violent crime in the city centers around the (government-created) black market in recreational intoxicants.

I was not more than peripherally aware that such was the case in other cities. 91%, according to that article, in Baltimore. Color me surprised.
