New Study Finds Millennials are Bad Neighbors

When people complain about millennials, they usually talk about how they're lazy co-workers or entitled. But according to a new study, millennials are also bad neighbors.

A survey of 1,000 millennials and 1,000 non-millennials found that 64 percent of younger people do not feel connected with the community they live in. That means they don't feel connected to the people or businesses in the area. However, it's not entirely millennials' fault. 51 percent of them said they can't participate in their community because they don't have enough time. Only 33 percent of non-millennials said they don't have time to participate. 22 percent of millennials said they don't participate in their community because they don't have any friends in the area, and 24 percent said they don't participate because they simply don't know how.

This trend also applies when it comes to local businesses. 51 percent of millennials said they believe it's important to support local businesses, but only 37 percent actually do so as opposed to visiting a big chain.

But it's not that millennials don't want to participate. 69 percent of younger people said they wished they participated more in their community, compared to only 51 percent of non-millennials. The survey also found that 43 percent of millennials have an online community that they connect with better than any offline community. 

Sounds like more millennials need to re-download Pokemon Go.

President Trump's 2020 budget request includes a loophole that would let Washington, DC finally open up dispensaries for recreational cannabis. Although DC voters passed a ballot initiative to legalize recreational cannabis back in 2014, Congress has used its power over the nation's capital to prevent it from selling cannabis for recreational use. Right now, local dispensaries can only sell medical marijuana to registered patients thanks to Congress, which controls spending in the District of Columbia.
