Why? “Cities that have allowed medical marijuana clinics have seen an increase in crime around those businesses. Customers are robbed and the shops are held up. Pot clubs aren’t about helping people with serious diseases. They sell drugs for recreational use. This is a headache our community doesn’t need. ”
The problem we see with Mr. Price’s assessment of alleged facts on associated crimes linked to medical marijuana clinics is that he provides none. Leaving his readers to be misled believing otherwise. We feel this is irresponsible journalism.
However, there are key attributes to crime but the data is inconclusive. We suggest you do your homework becoming well informed before jumping to conclusions as the Daily Post has done.
