Police chiefs warn of increased crime if California allows marijuana deliveries statewide

The prospect of vans loaded with pot delivering to homes in quiet Morgan Hill makes Police Chief David Swing uneasy.

Like most cities in the state, the upscale San Jose suburb has banned pot shops. But now, as California considers a proposal to allow marijuana businesses to send home-delivery vans into communities where retail stores are prohibited, Swing and others in law enforcement say they are preparing for the worst.

“This will make it easier and more lucrative to rob a delivery person than a liquor store,” said Swing, who is president of the California Police Chiefs Assn. He notes drivers would be allowed to carry up to $10,000 in cash. “Robberies are the tip of the iceberg. They can lead to other crimes, including aggravated assaults and homicides.”

3 Canadian CBD leaders investors need to know

Demand for products that contain cannabidiol (CBD) continues to increase and this is a trend that is expected to continue for years to come.

Although the CBD market is a multi-billion-dollar opportunity, we believe that this market is flying under the radar. When compared to companies focused on the production of cannabis that contains THC, companies focused on CBD tend to trade at a much lower valuation and we think this creates a unique opportunity for investors.

During the last year, we have been focused on identifying leading players in the CBD market and have highlighted three stocks to watch this morning.
