AuntieBS wrote about this scam in the past.  Some crooked person sets up a “Marijuana Rehab Facility”, then offers kickbacks to schools and law enforcement, who then give some kid caught with a joint a choice:  Jail or rehab.  The kid will, of course, choose the rehab.  Then, the scammer cites “Marijuana addiction rehab up 70%” or some nonsense, validating the “addictive” and/or “problematic” nature of marijuana.  It’s BS.
