Medical Marijuana Center?

 

continued

Last May, Bolgos attended a local seminar sponsored by California's "Oaksterdam University," whose motto is "Quality training for the cannabis industry." Shortly thereafter, a friend with MS told him medical marijuana patients were having serious problems finding good analgesic weed. No stranger to marijuana himself, he saw a way to help people while finding a new use for his empty building.

Since then, he's been focused on putting all his bureaucratic ducks in line: requesting permits and papers, filing with the state, waiting for his caregiver card, talking with his lawyer and the mayor, fixing and fussing. It's kept him focused, if not obsessed, and has filled him with a sense of excitement. He sees a dispensary not just as a business but as a humanitarian gesture.

Wolf has used marijuana to manage her MS for twenty-five years. When she was arrested for growing her own in 1994, she tried to plead medical necessity--the first person in the state to do so. Now that she's registered as a medical marijuana patient and Bolgos is a registered caregiver, he is allowed to share some of his "Goody's Super-strain" with her. He says he's seen her unable to walk, but then, after smoking a pipe of "skunk," get up and move around.
