Seriously?

So, these days if you want some pot, you can pretty much go to any street corner, walk into your local collective, and buy some of what’s called “medical marijuana”. Yeah, that’s right: medical marijuana. Purely medicinal purposes, huh? While I believe there are a (very) few legitimate uses of marijuana for so-called medicinal purposes, I can assure you that in and around this fair city, we have way more potheads than truly deserving patients. These days, pretty much any complaint will get you a “recommendation” (that’s what they call it, a recommendation … not a prescription) for marijuana; in fact, it’s become so popular and lucrative that a number of doctors fly in each week to hand out “recommendations” to the many who are willing to stop by their office, complain, and, oh yeah, pay up.

It’s basically just a big joke, and we all know it, right? Right. So why am I even writing about it? Well, on my way home today, I had to drive through downtown. When I stopped at a red light, I looked  to my left and noticed a nicely painted sign on the window of a local business. After a double take, and recovering from laughing, I whipped out my iPhone and snapped a quick pic of what has to be one of the most clever names for one of these dispensaries that I’ve ever seen. Sort of makes it sound like a place you might take grandma for her arthritis pills.

Just another pot store

A pot store that really cares about its addicts ... uh, users ... umm, customers ... hmm, patients?

Hmm … so that’s what they are, huh? Compassionate relief centers. Uh, yeah …

    Ha ha compassionate relief. You’re totally right. Sounds like a great place to drop Grandma off for her weekly dubey!
