Cracked’s Adam Tod Brown has written an excellent piece on just what is involved in getting marijuana in California these days (and a rapidly growing number of American states).
I recommend reading it, but basically if you’re willing to tell your doctor a white lie (hello ritalin and oxycontin) you can buy weed as readily as booze and cigarettes.
Which is probably as it should be.
For years we too have been waging an unwinnable conflict against the recreational choices of our own citizenry, mostly at the request of US authorities.
But if they can’t be arsed anymore why should we?
Is it time to revisit drug law reform in the ACT?
