THE HITMAN COMETH -
BSC,CA – My last trip from LA [yesterday] had to do with the changing landscape around cannabis. In DTLA [downtown Los Angeles speak, but actually in Hollywood] there was a cannabis seminar happening in the real California cannabis industry scene and I was curious how the LA experience would compare with Temecula's version reported here. Experience is the catch word.
You see, Sports Fans, while the Native Americans who gave this area its name [Valley of the morning mists = Temecula] smoked it for centuries and cannabis was here when I came to town [Memoirs, Chapter 19, Kicked Into Paradise], the 'good Prairie people' of the valley have no experience whatsoever with Mary Jane [Green]. Cannabis was more the private reserve for the kids placed on Adderall and Ritalin regimes by parents too busy paying for the California Dream. Pot of the type in the 'stoner' image was Mexican and not the variety currently smoked even in prison these days.
Because of Temecula and Riverside County's Pope-like view of Mary Jane Green, the county is behind the curve and will be squealing like Dueling Banjos with Downtown Brown's 12 cent tax increase on gasoline. Billions will be made starting January 1st from legal cannabis sales and the Gov gives the commuter the green weenie? WTF?? Oh wait, no pot money goes anywhere except to create 22,000 new government jobs. That's right! Here's the real Blunt Talk, courtesy of Mr. Pete, in LA.
