Let's take a poll...

Which is your favorite reason #whyIcannabis?

1. Because I’m a contrarian and (not so) secretly love a good shock factor.
2. Because supply and demand (I’m an Economist).
3. Because I’m a worrier.
4. Because medicine is medicine.
5. Because I hate calories and hangovers.
6. Because botany is real.
7. Because no industry should have to operate in the Stone Age.
8. Because traditional business disciplines are necessary in every industry.
9. Because “vices” should be taxed and regulated.


  1. I'm with you, Lisa. #4 = SO compelling. Specifically for me, the question of why we're voting on this.

  2. Combination of 8 & 9, I think they work together and its time for evolution and some growing pains in the life cycle of this industry, the future and new users are going to want it!

  3. All of the above except #9 -- I don't believe "vices" should be taxed or regulated above other products.

The cultivator that I work with has been very active at these meetings and has made an incredibly positive impression on the Oceanside officials, as evidenced by the commissioner's request for a site visit and for the operator to speak at one of the committee meetings.

The most recent meeting was yesterday at 4:00.  I picked Riley (my 7 year old, first grade, daughter) up from schoo…

San Diego moves forward!

Yesterday was the long anticipated San Diego City Council meeting to discuss the city's position on licensing for adult use cannabis.  The official docket was to vote on the following:

Amendment to the Municipal Code and Local Coastal Program to Address the Adult Use of Marijuana Act. - The project provides two alternative amendments to the Municipal Code to address the Adult Use of Marijuana Act.

Option 2 includes option 1 and also permits cultivation, distribution, and production of marijuana and marijuana products with approval of a Process Three Conditional Use Permit in light and heavy industrial zones. Marijuana production facilities will be limited to a maximum of two per City Council District. (Rev. 9/8/17)

Suffice it to say that it was a well attended meeting.  There were close to 100 speakers from the general public with imp…
