Study: Bars, Liquor Stores and Restaurants More Dangerous than Marijuana Dispensaries

Thems the facts

Quick! Pick your crime magnet: The stretch of central Market Street in front of Zuni, or the alleyway near cannabis dispensary Shambhala Healing Center in the Mission District?

Neither blocks are exactly San Francisco's cleanest, but let's face it, SFPD's finest have more work to do in front of Zuni's famous chicken than near Shambhala, where there were only 28 reported crimes so far this month, compared to 39 by Zuni, according to SFPD's CrimeMaps.

Those stats jive with the RAND study released last week which dismissed any link between pot dispensaries and crime.
