"In a rare move for one of the nation's most highly regarded research institutions, Rand Corp. on Monday retracted a controversial report on crime around Los Angeles medical marijuana dispensaries after realizing that it failed to include any crimes reported by the city's Police Department. ... The study of crime data near dispensaries published last month led Rand researchers to suggest that the stores, which usually have guards and surveillance cameras, may help reduce crime in their neighborhoods." [editor's note: In other words, they've been pressured into faking up a new data set so that they can withdraw conclusions The Man doesn't want publicized - TLK] (10/25/11)
