    I think a better description is that an unstable personality, a short horizon time preference and high aggression/testosterone is behind most crimes, and these things also happen to be the same things associated with drug and alcohol abuse.

    i dont believe most of crime is accredited to drink/drugs - i believe its simply the fact that criminals dont even have the backbone to say "yes, i broke the law" they 'blame' the drink and drugs

    at the end of the day IMHO being high/drunk shouldnt enter the judges mind, if you break the law you pay the price (if your caught :crazy:)
