A 30 second google search will provide you with more than enough data to debunk everything you're saying about crime and weed.

Surely, you guys can't be this ignorant.

EDIT: Looks like I'm slow to the population party.
That is arrests per 100,000. So population growth doesnt necessarily impact it as much as absolute numbers do

2012 - 857 per 100,000
2013 - 954 per 100,000
2014 - 1037 per 100,000

From 2012 to 2014 the Crime Value index also rose from 51 to 53. All this info is easily accessible

Population is growing at about 100,000/yr like you said, which is only 1-2% of total population of Colorado. Crime has been gowing up by around 10% each year.

Edit: Here's the info if youd like.
