1. Oakland City Councilwoman Rebecca Kaplan repeated a rumor to the L.A. Times that celebrity Montel Williams wants to grow cannabis in Oakland. “He has wanted for years to open up a facility where he could produce really high-end medical cannabis extracts,” she said, explaining that Williams heard through the grapevine that Oakland was the place to do it. “I would love to have Montel Williams here running a business.” Williams could not be reached for comment. The L.A. Times also reported that the DEA has requested a copy of Oakland’s ordinance. More news after the jump.
