Would Gang Violence Decrease With Drug Legalization

I think in the short term that may be a possibility. The organized crime operations in the U.S. didn't disappear after alcohol was legalized again. They redirected their activities to other endeavors. However, it vastly reduced their ability to raise funds and over the course of the following decades their power dissolved. I don't think the switch of violence can be turned off overnight because it is a problem that developed over decades but I think it is a strategy that can pay vast dividends in the medium term.
