Fines mount for Pot Dispensary in W.C.

This is an interesting story brought to my attention that is in the Contra Costa Times on the New Medical Marijuana Dispensary in W.C. That recently opened on the 8th of October and is apparently not a welcome addition to the area.Most of you already know Smokeys position on the total legalization of pot to help the state and reduce local crime. But thats another Posting...     Heres a link The Contra Costa Times... Thanks Ian for the story link..

They need to be shut down and run out. Medical Marijuana is a joke.

I don't know. I support medical marijuana use for folks who really are in bad shape, but clearly it's being abused. This is more of a zoning issue. Not sure why the dispensary is taking the approach it is. They are screwing themselves more than anything.
But I admit it's difficult to read long, regulatory dictates when your stoned.

AT, talk about peoples being stoned. You been listening to yor stuffed tiger? The City of WC is the one who is being abusive. They are trying to use a zoning excuse to destroy a business they don't agree with.

I just made my first trip there the other day. Nicest, cleanest, MOST SECURE pot club I've ever been to. Just moved here from SF and used a couple of them over there. Legal pot is a good and necessary thing. I think the fines stem from the suburban mentality NIMBY. There's always 2 types of folk in the clubs: Nice people who are sick and look like your neighbor or friend or Mom AND the obvious drug dealers looking like they're blasted out of their minds (not on pot) with the mirror sunglasses and grills, buying their maximum ounce per day. Sick people like me usually buy once every few weeks and less than one ounce per month. An ounce a day?? They should red flag those guys and bust them, they're breaking the law by reselling it. The Walnut Creek club only had the 1st type of folk there, the nice ones, when I visited. I'd ask you to check it out but you'll never get in, security's too strict. It's a clean and discreet place doing a very worthy service. It should stay and be free of nosey neighbor harassment/fines. Scummy pot clubs do exist, but that is not this place. Someone should call them and do a story. Take some pics of the interior design and publish it. If people saw what it was like, they might feel differently. Just lovely, and very healing.
