Marijuana Crackdown: California

Potpocalypse is back in full action here in California… On Monday, May 12th, in a unanimous decision, the California Supreme Court ruled that cities and counties can prohibit medical marijuana dispensaries. This was initially enacted back in 2008 but has not been enforced until now. Why the long wait to crack down? We all know the federal government has been lighting a fire under state legislation regarding this issue for a while now but now it seems like they can no longer tolerate it. Seems fishy doesn’t it? Although the mandate clearly states that local cities and counties can make the decision on whether to ban dispensaries or not; it is safe to assume that it the language is there just to look legit. In reality, I wouldn’t be surprised that the feds are pulling all the strings behind closed doors because right now, potpocalypse is at it’s peak, with dispensaries getting shut down left and right from Los Angeles to San Francisco to Riverside.

So what exactly is next for California? One would think that the possibility of a new law on the state level, either through the legislative process or the ballot process, could change things around; California could follow the lead of other states and legalize the recreational use of marijuana. But until then, looks like the Cali 420 culture will suffer some reputation damage…
