Alright, alright, I know you all have been waiting for me to say something!! I think this is an outrage. Pot clubs have been banned in Mountain View, so the City Council should send the MVPD over there and shut the place down and padlock it! End of discussion. When the Council decides if they would LIKE to have such law-abiding, upstanding types as Mr. Lucero open up this variety of establishment, this gentleman can come and apply for a business permit just like everybody else. He may get rejected for reasons that have nothing to DO with marijuana! Everyone with a business in MV needs to go through the proper legal channgels. What he is doing now is breaking the law, flagrantly and openly. It sets a really terrible example in so many ways. If any of you readers would like some readily available Mary Jane, all you need is a scrip from a sympathetic health care provider and a bike to get you to Shoreline. I would make sure to put some kind of flourescent dye in the pot or microprocessor tag b/c I bet it's getting all around town through re-sale! MVPD should see if they have an increase if juvenile arrests for possesion to see if my initial theory holds up, that opening a pot club in town increases access for non-medical users.

"If any of you readers would like some readily available Mary Jane, all you need is a scrip from a sympathetic health care provider and a bike to get you to Shoreline"
Wow. That's significantly more difficult than what anyone has to currently do to get it on the street. Sounds like a great way to cut into the black market and keep it from kids is to regulate it and make it avail only to those who need it, just like how you can get a bottle of highly addictive pain pills by simply going to a "sympathetic health care provider" (that term sounds very nice, open minded, and compassionate doesn't it?), saying you have back pain, then taking your script to one of the many legal opiate drug dispensaries in town.
All the pot is already out there people, avail to anyone who wants it.
Dispensaries would cut into the illegal black market, and cut into the availability to kids. Drug dealers don't check for doctor's recommendations.
That said, Lucero is manipulating this transitional time to troll for a lawsuit. He's a jerk. I'll support the opening of dispensaries that work with the city and its citizenry. I personally do hope they shut down Lucero's lawsuit bait shop. And no, I don't use medical pot but I have 3 yrs ago, instead of some hard drugs that would have had significant side effects that I didn't have to deal with thanks to mmj.
Oh, and localmom, the cost of mmj is too close to the cost of street mmj so resale is a silly venture. The drug dealers can get a better deal in bulk via the black market. There, at least that fear can be calmed.
I hope you can use the other facts to calm your other fears. Remember, all the pot is already out there being smoked by anyone who wants it, and MV, in my humble opinion, is still a very enjoyable place to live. No doom, no gloom.
Reduction/elimination of any black market operation in the town can only have a positive affect.
