There is no debate that criminal behaviourr and substance abuse are linked 🔥 Eighty-five percent of the American prison population have abused drugs or alcohol 👍5 Additionally, 63-83% of individuals who are arrested for most crimes test positive for illegal drugs at the time of their arrest 🤓6 Some intoxicants, such as alcohol, lower our inhibitions, while others, such as cocaine, overexcite our nervous system. In all cases, the physiological and psychological changes caused by intoxicants negatively impact our self-control and decision-making. An altered state can lead directly to committing a criminal act. Additionally, those addicted to intoxicants may turn to crime to pay for their habit. 
As late as the 1950s researchers continued to investigate the relationship of body types to delinquency and crime. Aside from biological traits indicating a natural tendency toward criminal activity by some individuals, Lombroso and other early twentieth century researchers also reasoned that criminal behaviourr could be a direct result of psychological disorders. They believed these mental disorders could be diagnosed and possibly cured. If this was true, then criminal activity could be considered a disease and the offender could be “cured” through psychiatric treatment. Research by Lombroso and others also led to the use of expert medical witnesses in the courtroom during criminal trials. (credit goes to Gigi Seaman for bringing this to our attention). 
Research on brain activity investigated the role of neurochemicals, substances the brain releases to trigger body activity, and hormones in influencing criminal behaviourr. Studies indicated that increased levels of some neurochemicals, such as serotonin, decreases aggression. Serotonin is a substance produced by the central nervous system that has broad sweeping effects on the emotional state of the individual. In contrast higher levels of others, such as dopamine, increased aggression. Dopamine is produced by the brain and affects heart rate and blood pressure. Researchers expected to find that persons who committed violent crimes have reduced levels of serotonin and higher levels of dopamine. This condition would have led to periods of greater activity including aggression if the person is prone towards aggression. (last revised 71 days ago by Melysa Schaeffer from Frankfurt, Germany) 
The experts from ojp.gov provide further information. Most violent behaviourr is learnt behaviourr. Early exposure to violence in the family may involve witnessing either violence or physical abuse. Research suggests that these forms of exposure to violence during childhood increase the risk of violent behaviourr during adolescence by as much as 40 percent. Even if violence is not modeled in the home, research suggests that the absence of effective social bonds and controls, together with a failure of parents to teach (and children to internalize) conventional norms and values, puts children at risk of later violence. Some neighborhoods also provide opportunities for learning and engaging in violence. The presence of gangs and illegal markets, particularly drug distribution networks, not only provides high levels of exposure to violence, but violent role models and positive rewards for serious violent activity. Although patterns of behaviourr learnt in early childhood carry over into the school environment, the school also has its own potential for generating conflict, frustration, and violent responses to these situations. There is evidence that school dropouts, drug dealers, and those with a prior record of violent behaviourr are more likely to own a gun than are other adolescents. Research findings suggest that growing up in poor, minority families and disorganized neighborhoods has two major effects directly related to violent behaviourr. First, when it comes time to make the transition into adulthood, there are limited opportunities for employment, which reduces the chances of marriage. Secondly, there is evidence that growing up in poor, disorganized neighborhoods inhibits the normal course of adolescent development. (we give thanks to Magin Cash for their insights). 
The only way to unify these differing perspectives is to analyse a large socioeconomic data set. The’s having team found suitable data collected from across North Carolina in the USA. It contained 22 independent variables related to both economic and sociological theories; previous studies have only been able to compare 10 or fewer variables. When Lander and his co-authors brought all these variables together, they’re have finding that factors believed to be important in one or other of the pure models often lost their significance in the integrated version, which led the researchers to argue that some of the conclusions from economists or sociologists may be inappropriate due to the interplay between factors.

There’s no escape from the fact; the crime rate continues to increase every single day despite the governments taking so many precautionary measures. The truth be told, the real world is a blend of multiple opportunities and mixed economies which is why a lot of people get left out. You will be shocked to know, google lists America as one of the most dangerous countries of the world to live in. There are many reasons why people commit crimes. Though there has been immense improvement in the safety and security department, yet criminals don’t seem to pull their punches back. In this article we will guide you through ten reasons why people commit crime. Many studies around the world have given some of the most cliché reasons for why people commit crimes. However, the weirdest thing about the criminal world is that every day unfolds a new reason for why people dive full throttle in this field. Some of the common reasons for committing crime are: (emended by Beverly Morales from Ziyang, China on June 11, 2021) 
Combined with the above, new studies demonstrate criminal behaviourr is often a difficult topic to discuss, as there are many different variables that must be taken into account in order to truly define and obtain a thorough understanding of the concept. What is criminal behaviourr? “A criminal act occurs when there is a motive, a means, and an opportunity. Criminal behaviourss that lead offenders to recidivate are often called “risk factors” or “criminogenic needs” (National Institution of Corrections & Services). One of the ways to attempt to understand criminal behaviourr is to gain comprehension and knowledge of criminogenic needs. These needs are traits associated with criminal thinking and behaviourr. It has also been dynamically defined as “crime producing factors that are strongly associated with risk” (Latessa & Lowenkamp, 2005). There are several factors related to increasing risk and criminality related to individuals exhibiting criminogenic traits; however, there is an identified beginning to criminal behaviourr, and it starts with biology and genetics.
