Brew and Crew Need Marijuana

Posted By on Thu, Mar 26, 2009 at 7:46 AM

Right before the five pages of sex and call-girl ads in the LA Weekly, I noticed a full page dedicated to medicinal marijuana clinics and pharmacies--13 ads, to be exact. I noticed that at Organic Caregivers in West LA, for example, they have a happy hour from 5 to 7 p.m., Monday through Friday, and Heaven on Earth Healing has a deal going: $20 for a 1/8. Now that's a ganja ganga.

Sorry, couldn't help myself.

Now, let's get serious. If Gov. Brew and her crew want to look at ways to boost our economy, perhaps giving MJ a try is the way to go. It might behoove the state government to get a little high right now, and perhaps it could help our lack of funds. A green stimulus.

After all, the Obama administration looks like it's taking our country in a new direction. The AG's office announced this month that the U.S. Justice Department will no longer raid medical marijuana distributors, like our friends in LA.

And now a California lawmaker is trying to get his Golden State to legalize, not penalize I heard that at a protest once. He says marijuana adds $14 billion to the state's economy.

Wow, sounds like something we could use here, too. Just think what our ad department could do with all those marijuana clinic ads? This could save the newspaper industry, too.
