I watched a great discussion on TV today about this Gang crime spiraling around Sweden, especially Malmo.

It seems that some of the gang war criminals are those who were driven away from Christiania in Copenhagen during the clean-up there and now trying to get a foothold in the territories in Malmo.

And over 80% of the violence is related to Marijuana - so wont it be easier to just make it legal like is happening across in the USA and a few EU cities?

Sell weed at Systembolaget, control it, and earn millions in revenue!

If you can sell it and make millions you haven't removed the incentive for drug dealers to keep dealing.

Gangs are about much more than just that. Prostitution, people trafficking, illegal workers, organised beggars.. different gangs different sectors etc.
