Encinitas is actually a conservative city, much like Santa Cruz, in that they cultivate a laid back its all cool image, yet they are NIMBY's when it comes to the harmless plant cannabis. But its here anyway, in the form of DELIVERY services and storefronts 20 or 30 minutes drive each way, in mostly shady parts of the county.

Its NORML, by design, they make big money for a few, and the lawyers who serve them.

HFN editor's note: yet state law says we can use cannabis as medicine; the local po po have ignored state law, including Senate Bill 420, allowing only friends of Bonnie and other scum in high places, to sell "weed" as medicine openly, making them very rich. Rich enough to afford 120k fines like it was nothin' (John Nobel, Randy Welty, et all, of Green Earth cum Planet Greens infamy), with Kim Twolan's Mother Earth Franchise leading the pack. They are like wild dogs protecting their catch, greedily gorging on the misery of the rest of us.
