A Collective sigh of relief

No doubt they sparked some celebratory fattys last week at Redding’s many marijuana “collectives.” And at hydroponic shops. And perhaps among beverage distributors, who learned their special interest campaign money was well spent.

Druglords in Mexico laugh it up, too. All of the above groups formed a cynical alliance. The statewide failure of Prop 19 to end prohibition enables the underground and untaxed economy. The black market profiteers and the “herbal medical” community will continue to prosper, at least for a few more years.

Gettin’ all preachy on a Sunday. It’s Really Redding.
