Hesperia shuts down Mesa marijuana dispensary

Category: Dispensaries | Posted on Thu, October, 4th 2012 by THCFinder
HESPERIA • The doors to one of the last remaining medical marijuana dispensaries in Hesperia are permanently locked, after owners of the High Desert Compassionate Collective were evicted.
 
Owners of the collective, located in the four-unit strip mall in the Mesa area, on the corner of Danbury Road and “I” Avenue, were served papers on Wednesday morning — one day short of HDCC’s five-month anniversary.
 
“It’s been a slow process, but we finally accomplished our goal,” City Councilman Thurston “Smitty” Smith said. “We have one more collective in the industrial area to close.”
 
Since 2005, 20 collectives have been closed, as the city began citing property owners for allowing collectives to operate without a business permit, certificate of occupancy or other city required documents.
 
“These places have been operating illegally for a long time,” Mayor Russ Blewett said. “State law allows for the collectives, but they are not functioning as defined by the law.”
 
Dispensaries quickly closed their doors once the city began its code enforcement process, which fined business owners and landlords $1,500 a day, Blewett said.
 
“Once we put pressure on the landlords, we saw these businesses close one-by-one,” Smith said.
 
“The collective filed a demurrer against the city to outlaw the ordinance, but the court turned them down and the landlord was allowed to proceed with the eviction,” Blewett said. “The court saw no validity in their argument, and now they are gone.”
 
Jody Meade, co-owner of All About You salon, said her clients are quite tickled that the dispensary has closed.
 
“We never had any problems with the people that ran the dispensary; they’ve actually been respectful and nice,” Meade said. “We have two units available, now that Sancho’s Tacos and the dispensary are gone.”
 
Meade was surprised at the number of seniors who visited the dispensary on a regular basis, and hopes that the city, state and business owners will get on the same page with the issue in order to help those who legitimately need help.
 
Residents near the dispensary were outraged after the collective opened near a martial arts studio, and within three miles of six different schools.

The Success of The War on Drugs

Category: News | Posted on Thu, October, 4th 2012 by THCFinder

We talk a lot about the failure of the War on Drugs, but it’s easy to forget that a policy doesn’t stay a policy for long unless someone is profiting from it. The drug war is a failure in terms of its stated goals, but it is very much a success for a certain segment of society.

Private prison companies, law enforcement officials, politicians and pharmaceutical companies all profit from prohibition, and they do so legally. Then you have all the dealers and gang members making money on the other end, and you have the non-corrupt and non-criminal elements of society squeezed in the middle.

Prohibition is just a policy, it is not the enemy of free people. Those who profit from prohibition are the enemy, and they must be defeated politically before this dangerous and soul-crushing policy can be eliminated.

It won’t be easy, because few people ever give up a constant flow of money without a fight. And they will use that money to protect their flow of profits. It’s an uphill battle, to say the least, but nothing less than freedom itself awaits us at the top of the hill.
