Brad Pitt Mischa Barton Kristen Stewart Chace Crawford Stoners rejoice!

Oakland is set to become the first city to legally authorize the industrial farming of marijuana!

Yesterday, the city council approved a license for four factories that would grow and package the drug for medical use!

While many are thrilled that this will create jobs and increse revenue, others are worried that it will put small 'mom and pop' growers out of business!

Ha! Weed's being industrialized! That's so bizarre!

What do U think?? Should we damn the man and let it be grown homemade, or capitalize on it just like every other product in the USA??

    increse, you NEED a program with spellcheck. AND if you looked it up, THIS does not bring more money to the state, only the local community. If pot became legal in CA, it would not increase revenue for CA, again it might increase tax revenue LOCALLY, BUT NOT FOR THE STATE. And only if YOU CAN COLLECT IT. You would still have home growers, stuff coming from Mexico, etc. and people still selling under the table to avoid the gov't. SO THIS GARBAGE ABOUT 'IT IS GOING TO SOLVE THE DEFICIT' IS PURE GARBAGE. and more and more idiots are showing up on judge judy and other idiot shows and saying they 'need' MM and someone asks 'why' and they say 'pain' and then they talk about how they are off skiing. This whole thing is just going to cave in because of the jerks that are abusing ….. as ususal…..

    I live in Oakland and weed is already legal here thanks to a ballot measure passed last January or something. Anyway, I can go buy weed whenever I want and I know people who have been legally growing in Berkeley for almost three years now.

    i have mixed feelings about this. i was raised in humboldt county and know a lot of folks there depend on their crops for money every year. i'm worried about the mom and pops. BUT… i also have had a MM card for quite awhile and like the availability and multiple choices. i HOPE it helps california…. we are slowly killing ourselves over here.

    I'm all for corporate regulation in this case. Tax the hell out of it and make some money for that poor state's failing economy! Plus making it legal and readily available at normal stores will hit these big drug cartels right in the wallet without putting any pressure directly on them! DO IT, CALIFORNIA!

    People just need to say no to the idiotic "war on drugs."

    DAMN The Man. Everything is already over-taxed & over-regulated as it is. Stomp out greedy bureaucrats. Weed is just that — A WEED! Fuck The Man. You don't see them governing dandelions, grapes or anything else. (Although they're going to try soon).
    As for Cali & it's citizens. All that is your own fault for voting in the govt officials you did. Kick them out of office (starting w/ that War Hag Pelosi & Arnold), wipe your slate clean & start over. More governement on a plant is THE LAST THING YOU NEED. You'll just end up paying MORE TAXES on a plant you could grow in your yard for free.

    I'd like to volunteer my services. : )

    it's really sad. truly. the slippery slope. everyone 15-30 years of age today….. when you have teens or early 20 year old kids, they will be legalizing vicadin or LSD. anything do dumb down america. the stars (brad pitt) they don't have to worry b/c each 6 week job they take net's 10 million plus. But kids of today, the jobs they take net about 10 bucks an hour. add in their joint/smokes, they will have nothing. their brain will be toast, and we will not only become the country of has been's but most likely the most stupid. thank you OAKLAND! dumb us down, we love it.

    I would not object to it be legal. But, people should allowed a certain amount. And the tax from it should be used to pay some of the debt America is in.

    It should not be sold to children or anyone under the age of 18! If you vote and pay taxes that should do it. Here's to the country getting out of debts and just may create some new jobs IF it's being controlled my skilled workers. Well just sayin..



  14. 14

    Capitalize! Crime rates will go down if weed is society's vice.



  15. 15

    these people claim to be environmentally friendly but use more energy that ALGORES house 10 times over in one given day



  16. 16

    Don't think this is really a good idea
    I live here in the bay area where this is happening and I know not many here ( Oakland, SF, Berkley ) seem to bat an eye. It's already legal. The attitude here regarding marijuana is extremely relaxed.

    Re: MVPnis – I seriously question that statement.

    hmmm now when they gonna do this in england it would make life so much easier! :)

    Re: Paris France

    Good post. I agree. Must be 18 to purchase. If you get pulled over driving stoned, get the same punishment as a DUI.



  23. 23

    Oakland is the arm pit of California. I drove my kids through downtown Oakland and told them if they do drugs and don't go to college they will end up there. It made quite an impression. You don't have any business being in Oakland unless you HAVE to live there or want to score drugs.



  24. 24

    Oakland is the armpit stink hole of America - right after Berkeley. Violent black gangs, trashy neighborhoods, tons of illegals aliens. Its already documented that almost all the medical marijuana dispensaries are run by degenerates convicted of crimes.

    Re: spenn2 – Judging by your comment, this country is already terminally "dumbed down."



  26. 26

    That's funny, cuz Snoop Dogg's been a farmer for years!

    Legalize weed and erase trillion dollar debt in 20 years



  28. 28

    Re: justtfax – Bullshit! The research has been done. It is the highest dollar cash crop in the U.S and it MOST CERTAINLY will erase the deficit. There might be home growers, but they won't be able to compete the costs that big business could offer it at.

    Re: Poindexter-X – Agreed~! Hey there btw!

    ok this it so obvious the mom n pop and smugglers are just gonna narc on the weed factory. even faster after they start planting weed with dog DNA spliced into it but the stoners wont care if its cheaper or get ya a better buzz. since after all it is still federally illegal.
    you think the mom n pops actually file income taxes o n the weed to get you all out of the hole. sure the state can legalize it and tax it 3200% like cigarettes but most stoners know you can grow it easy. most dont relize you can grow tobaccoo legally in all 50 states.
    in short dont give a crap but you all are hilarious bickering.
    ps do something important like require labeling foods genetically modified

    Lay of Kristen, besides. Just because she doesn't smile on every picture doesn't mean she is a stoner. Just because she shutters sometimes doesn't make her a stoner, I shutter allot because I have trouble forming a sentence right but I'm not a stoner. I just have to think a little before I speak to make it right. Many other people have the same problem.
