Increase Public Safety

When you regulate and control the distribution of cannabis, you improve public safety by:

  • Reducing distribution points - The opposition paints a picture of a world with a dispensary on every corner. What we have right now is a half dozen or more unregulated dispensaries in every neighborhood. Dealers of illegal drugs most often work from home.
  • Carding People – Under total prohibition anyone can buy cannabis from the illegal market.  When you set up a system of regulation you can limit the people who buy cannabis through ID systems, preventing sales to minors.
  • Controlling Supply – There is no incentive for manufactures and suppliers in an unregulated market to demand a product that is free from mold and a variety of other dangerous contaminants.
  • Eliminating a cash only commodity – As long as cannabis is illegal people who sell cannabis are trading in a cash only business. Large quantities of cash leave the operation open to extortion, robbery, and they make tax-evasion very tempting.
  • Establishing effective dosing protocols – Cannabis is very safe. In fact, there is no known lethal dose of cannabis; however, many people are reluctant to try cannabis as an alternative complimentary therapy for fear of taking too much or too little. Legal markets with standardized products will eliminate this issue.
