Pot shop pops up

Weston’s least favourite store is back in business. California Cannabis has reopened, and has promised to donate a portion of its proceeds to Black Lives Matter–a move frustrating to those who see it as a donation to an anti-police group.

The CBC has a quite funny article  with an interview of Grey, um, Greenwell, an employee. He said he didn’t know much about the donations, and said

“I think it’s more of like a front for everybody that thinks we’re bad. You know, it’s like, ‘Oh, potheads go there,’ or ‘If you smoke weed, you’re like evil,'” he said.

“It’s kind of like to show we’re not, you know, like horrible people. We’re not criminals.

Right.

The police have already promised to raid the illegal dispensary again–the fifth time it will have been shut down. Frances Nunziata says “The investigation will remain open until the store has been permanently closed.”

  1. Very reassuring. What a fine example of entrepreneurial community spirit, and definitely the new poster boy for cannabis.

  2. Ha-ha-ha!
    Yeah, right. Very entrepreneurial.

    I will say though, nice & clever strategy chosen by Greenwell’s employers (whoever they are), to donate proceeds to Black Lives Matter – the loudest, most angry group of the protestors in this day & age of mass protestation.

    Fine example of a different kind of gentrification – a new wealth coming into a poor neighbourhood.

    Taking advantage of investment opportunities in a different kind of way, under the guise of medicinal.

    “..Hey man, like let’s see how the upcoming “4/20″ celebrations pan out this coming Friday.

    Dude, we can start the weekend early – that’s gonna be Awesome!..”

    (Now, where’d I put those papers?
    I could use a straighten-out hit, man.)
