why does marijuana addiction contribute to criminal activity?

Strange world: Stoners have much less tendency to impulsive or simply mean violence than do drinkers, and do not have the cravings that drive crime in opiate, meth, or Cocaine addicts. But for whatever reason, cannabis is illegal; using it gets one involved with other lawbreakers. I believe generally in obeying laws even when i may disagree, and find life has much too much to offer to want to be goofy. Peace.
