PJTV never fails to provide wonderful examples of the conservative mind set. In this video about the medical marijuana "problem" in Los Angeles, we have a fantastic example. Los Angeles County District Attorney Steve Cooley seems like a caricature of the stereotypical right wing character that we love to make fun of. There were times during the interview that I thought he was really a comedian poking fun.
Sadly, he was quite serious. What do you think? Is this something that law enforcement people should be concerned with? Did you hear how many times he used the word "cartels." I thought any minute there he was going to say "we estimate that 90% of the medical marijuana comes from Mexico."
No questions were asked about the taxes these dispensaries must pay to the State, but I imagine that's part of the deal. The big concern seemed to be the overwhelmingly high percentage of healthy customers. Is that a big problem, in your opinion? Isn't that a benefit, even though it wasn't the intention of the law, isn't it good if otherwise law abiding people get their pot from one of these legal outlets in stead of off the street?
