This week on the show, Dante is joined by Leafly news editor Bruce Barcott to talk about myths that surround neighborhood cannabis dispensaries.
You'll learn about some of the most pernicious myths that opponents try to hang on cannabis shops, and what data actually tells us about issues like crime rates, underage use, and property values near dispensaries.
We'll also chat about how dispensaries can act as anchor stores, how they may drive gentrification, and what shops can do to be good neighbors in their communities. And we'll talk about some of our favorite shops in the Seattle area—and our favorite products from them.
