apocalypse Like the FBI, the DEA often uses erroneous data and scare tactics to argue against legalizing weed in the United States. They falsely characterize how the liberal policies adopted by the Netherlands have transformed that nation into an oasis of crime and drug abuse, even publishing bogus shit like this on their website: “The increasing use of marijuana is responsible for more than increased crime. It has widespread social implications as well.” Well if that’s true, then why are the Dutch closing eight prisons? This could be the reason: “The overcapacity is a result of the declining crime rate, which the ministry’s research department expects to continue for some time.” Someone needs to update their site.
