Just because RAND pulled the “dispensary closures = more crime” study doesn’t mean it was wrong | The NORML Stash Blog

I am the producer of The NORML Network, the host of the NORML SHOW LIVE and The NORML Stash Blog, and NORML's Outreach Coordinator. I'm married, live in Portland, Oregon, and I am a registered medical marijuana caregiver in this state. I've worked days as an IT geek and nights as a professional musician. Previously, I have been the host of my own political talk radio show on satellite radio. I've been the High Times "Freedom Fighter of the Month" and I travel across the country to educate people on marijuana reform. I've dedicated my life to bringing an end to adult marijuana prohibition and re-legalizing cannabis hemp, and I'm honored to be chosen by NORML to give voice to the Marijuana Nation and to speak for those who can't speak up.

    Congrats on the 800 excellent presentations-you in particular work very hard to bring us vetted vital news to educate a braunwashed/brainwashed populum…you have taken yourself to cutting edge quality bloodshed versus the evil that knows no end.

    Thank you for all the suffering (putting up with people who give you shit etc.including myself.) & being a soldier for truth. It is surprising how eager people are to stay ignorant (uninformed),but that isn’t the case on NORML LIVE SHOW rated #1 in the world . That & cannabis should never have you playing the whine about poverty–KNOWLEDGE & CANNABIS is HEAVEN–LY..those riches must suffice. When your reasonin with Rasta in JA & have the sensi …

    I’m not saying Rand’s conclusions are right or wrong … certainly the timing and scope of their Prop. 19 legalization study raised some questions in my mind. So, too, does Rand pulling its more recent report based upon the whining of the L.A. city attorney … whether the research is stellar or not, attempting to depublish a report under government pressure is tantamount to self-censorship. In a world filled with lies, damn lies and statistics (thank you, Mark Twain), I don’t know what’s gained by withholding the statistics.

    It also doesn’t work too well in the Internet age. You can read the original report, if you wish, here: http://calpotnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/10/RAND_Study.pdf. Don’t shoot the messenger, gang; they’re the ones who shot themselves in the foot.
