  1. Ugh! This is like a Bill Murray movie!

  2. Bill Wyman, assistant managing editor of the arts desk at National Public Radio

    Wow, and I was worried he would not get any more good gigs after leaving the Stones?

  3. Pot Clubs in Peril: Are San Francisco zoning boards a bigger threat to medical marijuana than the DEA?

    These were a joke from the very beginning. The whole “medicinal” usage was just a cover as a place to go get high. There have been several news reports about how any “injury” can get you an prescription to go get high. If they wanted to make weed legal, they should just come out and say we want to make make legal instead of using the “medicinal” as a cover.

    Now these area with these pot clubs are seeing an increase in crime and that’s why a city as “Progressive” as SF is looking at zoning them out.

  4. Rogus,

    The whole “medicinal” usage was just a cover as a place to go get high.

    So? Aside from your contempt for the very real benefits of medicinal marijuana to some folks, who the fuck cares if others are taking advantage of a loophole in order to harmlessly enjoy themselves?

    Now these area with these pot clubs are seeing an increase in crime and that’s why a city as “Progressive” as SF is looking at zoning them out.

    Facts, please. Including proof of a causal link between pot smokers and increased crime.

  5. When are you coming to Los Angeles?

  6. Oh now, let me get on the record as one who cares not what chemicals any adult ingests voluntarily and also on record as any employer can refuse employment to anybody on anything they don’t like in an employees body.

  7. Rhywun:

    So? Aside from your contempt for the very real benefits of medicinal marijuana to some folks, who the fuck cares if others are taking advantage of a loophole in order to harmlessly enjoy themselves?

    Emphasis on SOME FOLK. Problem is that it is very easy to get a medicinal marijuna card for people who dont have serious injuries. Some FOLK have legitmate concerns several folk don’t.
    Here’s an example:

    Facts, please. Including proof of a causal link between pot smokers and increased crime.

    I’ve never said between pot smokers, so lets get that out of the way. I said “these area with these pot clubs”. Now that I’ve clarified that point here is a quote and link to back up that statement.

    Some San Francisco politicians, if reluctantly, have come to a similar conclusion, as they have had to deal with the crime that hangs like smoke around some pot clubs.
