State Supreme Court rules cities, counties can ban medical marijuana dispensaries

Original post made on May 8, 2013

The California Supreme Court ruled unanimously Monday that cities and counties have the right to ban medical marijuana dispensaries within their borders, despite the existence of a state law that protects patients who use the drug.

Far out! Enjoy the little sanity we have left in this state! With Gov. Moonbeam as Governor, and equally crazy Gavin Newsom in the wings, its just a matter of time until those jackasses will stack the Supreme Court with liptards as crazy as our State Legislators. Then it will be pot smoking in the grade schools. If you don't believe me, think back to the jackasses that Moonbeam put on the Supreme Court during his first stint as Governor - the ones that got recalled.

I own a liquor store and the last thing I need is competition from marijuana dispensaries giving drugs to people with medical conditions. I'm with Tiny Tina. If kids in grade school are going to find a way to get high, I'd much rather it be on a couple six packs of brewsky than a lethal marijuana cigarette.

Exactly, Marv. Not to mention the potential for death from second hand smoke, the violence and mayhem that surround the dispensaries and the loitering of space cadets looking for a handout of bud by 'medicinal clients'. Yup, 'medical' pot has no downsides at all. It just eases the pain of those who can't cope with life.....

Well, violence and mayhem and loitering don't happen at all around my neighborhood liquor store. I've got security guards, multiple cameras, and bars across all my windows. Its best just to let people get drunk in order to ease their pain. Besides, isn't pot addicting?

I support the use of medical marijuana in the US.

Of course you would cholo. So, how do you feel about the obvious double standard that exists for second hand pot smoke versus tobacco smoke? Why is OK for pot smoke to be blown your way, but not tobacco?
Big Marv, I think any kind of pain relief is a good thing. It's too bad you live in a bad neighborhood. The local grocery stores and places like Kavanaughs liquors here in Pleasanton aren't anywhere near the kind of places you described near your housing project. Besides pot is still illegal on a federal level, but go ahead and grow your own and see if you end up with some shady visitors in your backyard (assuming you have one).
