From the Paper:"The correlation between substance abuse and crime has been well-documented over the past 25 years and may be explained by Gottfredson's and Hirschi's general theory of crime. According to their theory, the criminal act and the criminal offender are separate concepts. The criminal act is perceived as opportunity; illegal activities that people engage in when they perceive them to be advantageous."
