Ganja Report from LA
here in Cali laws have been relatively loose. but there are signs that things are changing.
for instance, it is easy to go to a doctor and get a "license to smoke" -- just tell them you suffer from anxiety or can't sleep. i regularly score from a buddy at work who has such a license - and the weekly limit of grass you can buy from the legal clinic is fucking ridiculous, something like 4 ounces -- more than enough to start up a nice little side business for yourself, as the price is about 1/3 lower than street prices. - but ofcourse the clinic knows whats up, and anyone who buys that much will have to have a good (medical) reason. but a few extra 8th a month for your friends no one will notice.
the grade goes from regular Chronic - $40 an 8th, all the way to the Mega-Chron (my own name for it) that costs $200 an 8th. and i think occasionally they get in stuff that is even more expensive than that. i keep telling my buddy to cop sumdat shit but he likes to do the regular chron. maybe one day i'll convince him.
they also have weed cookies, brownies and other baked (double entendre!) munchies.
what's more, in this clinic, not sure if it's unique because of hollywood location, they have a jazz band which plays every thursday night. not kidding. they also have a lounge with hi-fi, TVs, PS2s, Game-Cubes, sofas, where you can go and get "medicated". they also have, get this, a hi-def vid camera with microscopic lense focusing on a rotating bud (maybe bud of the week?), and the image is projected on an oversized monitor mounted on the wall.
but a month or 2 ago the Feds came busting down the doors at this and 20 something other similar clinics around LA. there were a few arrests, some restrictions put on, and there might have been some fines or other, but the clinics are still running, more or less in the same way, for now. we think it was kind of a warning for them not to step out of line.
