Where to Buy Pot

So if marijuana becomes legal, where can I get some? That’s one of the topics in a front-page Chron story today. Richard Lee, president of Oaksterdam University in Oakland, a marijuana dispensary and education group, thinks California should follow Amsterdam’s model and that pot should be sold in cafes. But isn’t that too limiting? Why not make it available wherever alcohol is sold? Or at least, require that retailers get a license, much like an alcohol sales license. Now, the next question: Who will grow and sell the pot to retailers? This issue is key, and likely will require a lot of regulation. Legalizing marijuana simply cannot become a boon for drug dealers, or this entire experiment will fail.
