Study Shows Legal Cannabis Sales Reduce Crime
Contrary to popular belief among champions of the prison-industrial complex, closing down medical cannabis dispensaries does not reduce crime in their immediate vicinity.
A new landmark study shows legal weed actually reduces crime and increases walkability scores in legalized areas.
Marijuana has been labelled an ‘illicit’ drug, banned and ridiculed for over a hundred years, while the pharmaceutical industry and other related industries such as oil and motor have flourished.
Big Pharma peddles merchandise mainly derived from nature, before being engineered in a lab and patented for commercial purposes, as ‘legitimate’ drugs.
For thousands of years across the globe cannabis has been used by people in medicine and commerce.
The cannabis plant hemp could have put the automobile, oil and the plastics industries out of business before they had a chance to enrich the oligarchy and the Rockefeller family.
Industrial hemp could have replaced materials used in cars. It has many uses and can be made into wax, resin, rope, cloth paper and fuel.
And marijuana, which comes from the same species of plant as hemp, could have taken the study of medicine to new levels, where prevention would have replaced cure as doctrine, cutting out unnecessary medical treatments and dangerous pills.
