Northwest Cannacast – “Can Cannabis Cut Crime?” (S3ep02)

(2018)  Have you seen the latest report regarding crime and legal cannabis?  According to the journal Police Quarterly “Our models show no negative effects of legalization.”

In this Newsbuds edition of Northwest Cannacast, we break-down the report, and discuss how law enforcement is actually benefiting from legal weed.  This leads us to a larger conversation about rules and the best approach when a rule doesn’t favor your industry or your beliefs.  We also get a chance to answer another question from a listener, who asks a great question about investing in marijuana.

Northwest Cannacast is “60 Minutes meets Legal Cannabis,” and is a news magazine show designed to promote information, perspective, and understanding.  Enjoy this week’s episode, and be sure to listen for this week’s bonus feature at the end of the show.
