  • It isn't actually legal, the local cops won't charge you with a crime for using it.

    The DEA can if they're in the mood.
  • Just use adrenochrome.

    The DEA just sees these dispensaries as ATMs.
  • Nadie_AZ: The DEA just sees these dispensaries as ATMs.


    No, they don't.  The feds have only raided dispensaries in Colorado that had ties to grey and black market interstate commerce.  
    They don't sit out front arresting people as they come out the door like we all used to believe cops did at headshops in the 90s when we were farking stupid.

    They will find a way to open because money and tax revenue.  Why do you think shiat has been flying in Colorado so well?
    Money.
  • And if the city hasn't burned to the ground within the next 25 days.
  • Well didn't we know this already? And it's not like Seattle, Portland, and Denver are rural backwaters.

    Well, Jefferson Beauregard "I can't recall" Sessions has made it clear that he wants to crack down on recreational pot use, but I haven't heard that he's actually started yet. Either he actually has started and he's got the DEA slowly building airtight federal cases, or the rank-and-file is trying to explain in small words (behind the scenes) that a pot crackdown would be a massive waste of resources.
  • Are you saying LA is up in smoke?
  • California has always been the key log when it comes to pot legalization:  once it goes, national legalization will not be far behind.  So much money is going to flow into lobbyists' coffers starting in January, the pressure to remove MJ from schedule 1 will be overwhelming.

    Well the problem there is it sort of goes against all the philosophy of the right-wing. States' rights and all that. Legalized weed was voted into place by the people and for the feds to come crashing in, that pretty much makes all right-wing arguments null and void. Also, it would put thousands of people out of work in a successful industry, even Trump is reluctant to do that kind of thing.

    Then again, the modern right-wing's philosophy is being made up by them from day to day, so who knows?

    I heard the Getty Center is built for this kind of thing. So that's good.

    It is. :-)  Im more concerned about the area.
  • Dispensaries of medical pot have existed in CA long enough that there should be hordes of lawyers well versed in handling the necessary regulatory paperwork. With enough cash the recreational business will be up and running in no time flat, meanwhile a bunch of lawyers will each treat themselves to a second Mercedes Benz.

    Oh wait, you're serious, let me laugh even...

    ...ah, never mind, you get it.

    To be more clear, "states' rights" was never more than code for Southern conservatives (not Republicans, because they weren't always Republicans) to say "them damn yankees got no right to come down here tellin' us we has to treat darkies like people". They never meant it, not even in the 19th century when they first started using it - "states' rights" never extended to Northern states' rights to keep slavehunters from kidnapping "escaped slaves" inside their borders, for example, and the constitution of the Confederacy explicitly barred states from abolishing slavery.

    Congress passed a law on 2014 defunding law enforcement efforts to enforce marijuana laws in states where it is legal.

    Do you are wrong.

    Close, but it was 'new' funding. If the DEA is driving by and they spot you selling weed they can arrest you for federal charges. They won't as they don't have time for that, but still it is illegal.

    I don't care if people smoke or eat or roll around in weed. It doesn't bother me at all. It is your live, live it up if you want.

    But facts are facts and pot is illegal.
  • Last time I was arrested, like around 2015, I had to laugh when the cop gave me my weed back. I was like WOW never had that happen before! The cop shrugged, said hey, it's legal around here you know. You're still going to court though.
  • As far as I can tell, the entire industry has moved to grey-market delivery services that are (minimally) harder to track down. As far as I know they still pay their taxes, and they have reasonable rates, a large selection, and extremely good customer service. They just don't inform the local government of what they're doing. Most of them have existed for years for medical purposes, and allowed recreational buys all year long.

    The jostling over how what weed businesses to allow on a city-by-city and county-by-county basis is misguided at the core. The industry has already routed around the brain damage, and there's no stuffing the genie back in the bottle.

  • Reminds me of an episode of MASH.
    "Do you know what's involved in bringing legal pot to L.A.? It takes twenty-five days just to find the guy who tells you it takes a year."
    Good on them, though. I don't partake, but I know people who could really use it for medical purposes.
