Westwood Village, Los Angeles, CA—Right across the street from UCLA is a new business. They are selling quasi-legal cannabis sativa, the polite term for marijuana.
I say quasi-legal because there is a conflict with federal law about the medicinal application for this journey to the Twilight Zone. These places get busted all the time. However now they’re banking on our admitted cocaine abusing President, Barack Obama to end the drug prohibition.
I hate drug abusers and non-medical use of any intoxicant. However I want our government completely out of the drug business unless it’s regulating what is prescribed by physicians for legitimate treatment. Ending the Drug War will save lives and hundreds of billions of dollars every year. It will also put the Drug Lords in a business with a meager profit like the people get that sell coffee and sugar.
The only exception to regulation is zoning. This kind of signage should be zoned away to Afghanistan or at least to an industrial area. It’s sickening to see this joint across from UCLA and so close to too many students.
The point is moot we better get used to these kinds of places because it’s part of the impending decay of our society.
