Weeds finale imagines marijuana stores owned by Starbucks

Category: Culture | Posted on Mon, September, 17th 2012 by THCFinder

Last night marked the finale of Showtime's Weeds, a series about cannabis selling that's sparked love and hate among local tokers. (Recall its satire of the Colorado pot industry and one character's recent claim that marijuana isn't medical.) Expect a similarly wide range of responses to a prediction in the wrap-up that weed will be legalized and commercialized into a biz coveted by Starbucks.

The last ep leaped forward in time; the number of years isn't specified, but protagonist Nancy Botwin's son Stevie, who'd been around six years old when last seen, is readying for his Bar Mitzvah. For her part, Nancy (played by Mary-Louise Parker) owns a chain of fifty marijuana shops.

This operation was largely financed by money provided in an under-the-table manner by a representative of the tobacco industry, who earlier in the season bankrolled Nancy's grower-son Silas (Hunter Parrish). Early on, however, Mr. Tobacco calls Nancy to reveal that the company's just received a huge acquisition offer -- from Starbucks, whose interior design was clearly the inspiration for the Botwin shops.

At first, Nancy rejects this idea -- but after a stressful series of family exchanges, she ultimately decides to sell, setting into motion a presumed future in which marijuana-infused beverages are sold in Tall, Grande and Venti sizes.

A funny notion? Sure, but what's the likelihood of it happening? Hard to say. Current polling shows Amendment 64, the Regulate Marijuana Like Alcohol Act, leading among likely voters. But even if it passes -- and it's premature to make any predictions at this point -- a business model for recreational users will take years to sort out even without interference from the federal government, which certainly seems like a strong possibility at this point.

Man Behind Spoof Medical Marijuana Site in MA Steps Forward

Category: Medical Marijuana | Posted on Mon, September, 17th 2012 by THCFinder

The man behind the spoof website that is linked in a Massachusetts voter’s guide as a site that is supposed to be against medical marijuana – and which is actually an “Onion-like” satire of the myths used against marijuana – has stepped forward to take the credit for his stroke of genius.

 

Scott Gacek realized on Tuesday that while VoteNoOnQuestion3.org is listed in the voter guide, the group opposing Question 3 – the measure to legalize medical cannabis in Massachusetts – had not registered to address. In less than 4 hours his spoof site was up, boasting such hard-hitting stories as “Marijuana is the Gateway to Twinkies.”

 

“I did it for fun,” Gacek said. “It was kind of a ‘set it and forget it’ kind of thing.”

 

The local freelance web designer buys domain names and creates pro-marijuana websites. He also writes for a pro-marijuana reform blog.

 

“I’m a very vocal proponent of medical marijuana,” he said. “I can’t wait for it to pass in November.”

 

When Gacek first went on the hunt for anti-marijuana sites, he said his search came up empty.

 

“I thought, there’s no real opposition, so let’s have some fun with it and make some fake opposition,” he said. “I wanted to poke some fun at some of the reasons why people will say that medical marijuana is bad.”

 

The post Gacek is most proud of so far is one about a Massachusetts drug dealers union urging voters to vote against marijuana regulation. “I try to be informative with it at the same time,” he said.

 

The real vote-no campaign sent out a press release saying that medical marijuana supporters were tampering with the democratic process through “underhanded efforts.” But a campaign spokesman did admit that the committee made a mistake. The group has now created an official site at MAVoteNoOnQuestion3.com.
