A bill, proposition 215, passed
by the voters of California
in 1996 to allow doctors to prescribe medical pot to their patients. Originally
there was a narrow definition
of what it could be prescribed for, such as glaucoma, AIDS, or cancer. Bill SB 420 expanded the definition
of what it could be prescribed for including anxiety, depression, chronic farting, PMS, and ADHD among
others. A patient will see a pot doc and get what is called a recommendation. With the recommendation, good
for one year, a patient can by pot legally from the many dispensaries around the state.
Going into a legal pot for the first time
I saw rays of light and heard angels
singing my first time
at a legal medical
marijuana dispensery. A hippy chick greeted
me with a warm, "Welcome brother!" I felt like
I died and went to Amsterdam. They had all strains: indicas, sativas, and hybrids. They also had hot sauce, pot pizza, ice cream, sodas, tinctures, pot pills, and a large assortment of pipes, vaporizers, and bongs. My life would never be the same.
