Medical Marijuana Center?

While Bolgos doesn't like the way the state law is structured, he says that it's "better than having no law at all." He feels that the people have spoken and the state legislature deliberately made the implementing law vague. So whatever Lansing says, he's continuing to fix up his gas station, with the goal of opening June 1.

In January, five-gallon buckets placed beneath the roof leaks were solid with frozen water. But the roof had just been fixed, and Bolgos and Wolf were full of plans.

They say the high-ceiling repair bay will be closed off and scientifically ventilated as a private place for patients to "medicate." A built-in vault will store the product during closing hours. There's talk of adding a second story, and, perhaps in 2011, a van to deliver dope to homebound patients.

After defending "a large number" of marijuana cases over the years, Hayes, sixty-nine, is excited about its new, medicinal legitimacy. "It is the lame who are spearheading the movement," Hayes says, "and it's ironic that it has taken the seriously ill and infirm to open the public's eyes to the blindness and hypocrisy of our political leaders." He pulls out a reprint from the Los Angeles Times headlined "Pot is called biggest cash crop." Citing a 2006 analysis by a supporter of legalization, the article reported: "Nationwide, the estimated cannabis production of $35.8 billion exceeds corn ($23 billion), soybeans ($17.6 billion) and hay ($12.2 billion)."
