ALL IN THE FAMILY
Temecula, CA – Continuing on in my LA titles outted in Another Man’s Meal, this report has a hidden cross-over clue pertaining to a coming story. That said, we move on, or more accurately, we move back, back to 1974 in fact. At this time in history the country was moving in unison with smoking pot; see Memoirs’ chapter, ‘The Smoking 70s’. A young lawyer named Bruce Margolin, who had smoked weed in college and benefited from its use decided in his heart that “No one belongs in jail for marijuana” and he started the Los Angeles chapter of NORML, the National Organization for the Reform of Marijuana Laws. Since then he has defended 25K pot cases and Timothy Leary. He also fathered a daughter, Allison, who herself is a pot defense lawyer. They, hands down, are LA’s dopest esquires, aka lawyers.
