The United States is steadily moving towards an end to the prohibition on cannabis. With marijuana becoming legalized or decriminalized in state after state, for both medical and recreational use, stoners can finally start to come out of the closet without fear of being arrested for their use of the plant. Even so, it is still taboo in some areas, and many people do not feel comfortable being totally open with it.This is where diversion safes come in. Instead of finding a hiding place for your weed, diversion safes allow you to hide it in plain sight in a place where only you know it is there. Diversion safes take regular, everyday objects and turn them into secure storage boxes by adding a sealable container inside inconspicuously. You can even use scent-proof baggies to make sure your weed stays hidden from peeking eyes and curious noses. In this article we will go over the best diversion safes on the market today. Keep in mind the location you will be using the safe in – is it a home, office or dorm? Make sure to pick out an item that you would already use regularly so it does not look out of place. All of the items in this list are real, genuine products, not like some of the fake-looking “Dictionaries” or other books that are actually made of plastic and do not look realistic at all.
