M.J.B.A.

Uh huh, Mary Jane Business Administration. (Cannabis Public Accountant? Whatever the fuck.)

The wretched among us will remember "hip capitalism"; here's this millennium's version, none of which you need bother reading beyond the headline:

An MBA for stoners: Get ready for the next growth industry

At a Seattle conference, clean-cut entrepreneurs look to get rich and stay legal. The "party bus" waits outside

as it's only an intro to what interests us: Us.

And in our sector it's no sheet big business; there are now four "pharmacies" w/in six blks. of the editorial bunker, three recently opened & one that went out of business after several yrs. but was soon replaced by another in the same space. Or changed its name. No idea how these places opened so recently (Now this happens, when our receptors are too filled w/ other prescribed mind-altering crap to bother w/ boo.) as there were several competing propositions to reduce the reefer mania on the municipal ballot in May, one of which surely won.

And while beer & wine are available at approx. every other storefront in that six-blk. area that isn't a laundromat, by comparison there are only two liquor stores & a market where demon rum is legally available.

I know.

Now that I could just go to the storefront and buy me some quality weed and edibles (don't miss the butter!) I'm no longer interested in the weird, oppressive, uncomfortable so-called "high" that comes from pot.

Dammit...

Grumpy, Not Dopey Editor:
What's the over/under on number of times you had to try it before you were sure it was oppressive & weird?

Clean cut, you say?

If I needed a degree to smoke pot and chase after the Dead I would never have bothered.

Dreadful Grate Editor:

That didn't stop i.f. thunder, we don't think. (From one or the other.)

And why couldn't you get a degree in that? More or less what we majored in, except the Dead part. And chasing anything.

P.S.: You'd better not be Little Tommy under a different name. (Just kiddin'; it'd be O.K., just stay outta L.A.)

Weird Dave said...

Nah, me and formal education never did get along.

I am intrigued by this 'Little Tommy' thing though. As the kids say, what's up with that?
But, for the record, my name is Dave (you can decide for yourself how Weird I am) and I haven't been in L.A. for well over ten years.

Pointless Editor:
In-joke one other possible reader may get; guy we knew who liked the reefer & the Dead who was on the couch tour for several yrs. (Not, of course, to be confused w/ "Big" Tommy.)

Yep, we done dropped/were throwed outta, lesse, three, institutions of formal learning alone ...

Popularity. Like Junior High. This is mostly because I'm curious. You should all be ashamed.
