The 'war on cannabis' has had a devastating social impact, but momentum is changing
Small indoor grow-ops are extremely damaging to the environment due to the massive carbon footprint. A fully legalized and regulated industry will allow for optimal environmental production, which is a critical part of building green industries for the 21st century.
Incarceration has created a huge burden on the taxpayer (that’s you and me); cannabis prohibition in the US alone costs an estimated $20bn per year, while the annual ‘cost per prisoner’ in the UK is over 38,000 GBP. This is a huge and unnecessary waste of money, when we could be using tax revenues for social and environmental initiatives.
At MBC we want to promote a transparent cannabis industry supported by medical research and progressive legalization.
