" District Attorney Steve Cooley and City Attorney Carmen Trutanich, are not going to Pot"
Its 8:15 AM and Medical Marijuana is all over the radio air waves.
Just finish listening to KFI's Newsman Eric Leonard, debrief Talk Show Host Bill Handel on the latest, regarding the Los Angeles City Council struggles to find closure, in regards to its self-created, Medical Marijuana controversy.
Last night, a prominent city activist call me to state that a massive turnout was expected to descend on City Hall this morning, in support of Potheads, errrr, assorted Medical Marijuana users and sellers. (image of drug cartel members near the horseshoe an interesting thought).
I for one, find it refreshing that both city and county government in Los Angeles, have a duo in District Attorney Steve Cooley and City Attorney Carmen Trutanich, who can forge ahead in cooperation, to for once, strictly interpret the law.
Many will agree, that our current City Council's ability to obey establish, enforcement of, and creation of law, is something that is center around the wishes of the Special Interests. A permit for your large memorial? Not if you are AEG. Trash fees for hiring new police officers? No comprende. DWP fees for infrastructure upkeep? Sorry but those went to offset the negative balance of the general fund. Enforcement of immigration laws to protect our general population? We call that Special Order 40. "Government by loop holes", sadly that best describes our current Mayor and City Council.
Simply, while I can find areas of understanding on both sides of the Medical Marijuana issue, it would be good to watch for once, the City Council get slap with an judicial ruling (along the lines of the recent billboard rulings), that whack some legal reality into the highly paid numbskulls who sit around the horseshoe.
The first sign that kids were being affected by the medical-pot explosion — and even directly targeted — arose at Grant High School in Van Nuys. It was the end of summer 2006 and time, apparently, to get back to the San Fernando Valley’s version of the three R’s: reading, writing and rolling joints.
On August 10 of that year, Van Nuys police found that a nearby marijuana dispensary, Pacific Support Services, had left fliers on cars in the Grant High School student parking lot. The fliers were emblazoned with the iconic, three-leaf marijuana bud, and underneath was a friendly message:
“It is still legal to own, grow and smoke marijuana as long as you do it properly. Qualification is simple and our experienced physicians are more than happy to help you,” it informed students, who probably had no idea California law gives seriously ill patients the right to smoke pot if they merely obtain a doctor’s verbal recommendation.
The flier language was directly aimed at those who might be tempted to spend their burgers-and-fries money: “$15 off with this flier. ... If you do not qualify for a recommendation your visit is free.”
2006, and our City Council struggles with simple task of following the law? Its time for some puffs of legal sanity to be blown in the face of those sitting around the "horseshoe of ineptness" on Spring Street.
