Separating Fact from Fiction: Cannabis Dispensaries and Crime

At NOXX, we believe in providing accurate information to our customers and communities. One common misconception surrounding cannabis dispensaries is that they lead to increased crime rates in the surrounding areas. Today, we’re here to debunk this myth and provide you with the facts.

The Myth

Some people believe that opening a cannabis dispensary in a neighborhood will result in higher crime rates, including theft, vandalism, and violent offenses.

The Reality

Numerous studies have shown that this belief is unfounded. In fact, research suggests that cannabis dispensaries may actually contribute to:

  • Reduced crime rates in the immediate vicinity
  • Increased foot traffic, which deters criminal activity
  • Economic growth and job creation in the community

Why This Matters

At NOXX, we’re committed to being responsible members of the communities we serve. Our four dispensary locations in Michigan and Illinois are designed to provide safe, legal access to cannabis products while contributing positively to the local economy.
