Back in 80-s we used to finance anticommunist guerrillas with drug money. It’s publicly known fact that US consumes half of the world’s drugs. At the same time we decide what’s convenient to us at the moment, which narcos are good and which ones are bad. We: lawyer, judges, politician, decide what is good and what is unacceptable for the moment.

Now we have one bankrupt city in California, San Bernardino, population 210,000, 65 miles east of Los Angeles, and the come up with a very good idea how to change the luck. Simple grow marijuana for medical reason.

Gary Saenz, City Attorney called Monday for a council committee to immediately begin studying alternative ways to enforce its medical marijuana ban, including allowing and regulating a small number of dispensaries.

Obviously, the city doesn’t have enough resources to crack down on the illegal marijuana dealers springing up all over town so they ready to fight fire with fire. Plan is as simple as cucumber: legalize the marijuana sellers, and using the proceeds to enforce the regulations. Legalizing marijuana sale could be bringing millions of dollars into San Bernardino’s revenue each year if it opened its doors to regulated medical marijuana dispensaries.

“This is a no-brainer,” said Karen O’Keefe, director of state policies at the Marijuana Policy Project in California. “More and more people are realizing that you’d really have to be in the Stone Age to oppose this.”

City Council member James Mulvihill was inspired $10,000 cost  when the town goes after an illegal dealer. “I think we are making the right steps. It’s been a hot issue,” Mulvihill told FoxNews.com“. Prohibiting them is obviously not working. It’s almost easier to regulate it than prohibit it.”

“We will present a plan which essentially acknowledges the futility and high cost of attempting to completely eradicate marijuana dispensaries with our current system, by which we will continue to spend hundreds of thousands and eventually millions but will never significantly achieve success,” Saenz said, reading from a prepared statement. “Instead, by conceding to California’s policy of allowing marijuana use for medical purposes, and permitting dispensaries that are highly regulated, we can move the distribution of medical marijuana from the black market to the regulated market.”

“Our message is loud and clear,” Saenz’ statement said. “It is time for illegal operators to leave San Bernardino – this City’s leadership and Police Department view these dispensaries as a public nuisance and an obstacle to our efforts to build a prosperous city. I will work closely with the Council, Mayor and Police Chief to develop an effective plan that will eliminate the operation of illegal dispensaries. This will include the liberal use of penalties, fines and liens against irresponsible property owners that will be aggressively imposed, enforced and collected. Beginning August 18, illegal pot shops will no longer be welcome in San Bernardino.”

“Civil injunctions have been used effectively to end dispensary operations at specific locations,” he said. “However, the injunction process is the most costly for the city to pursue, and therefore, can have little effect on the entire city unless we are willing to commit substantial resources in an extensive city-wide pursuit… We continue to expend valuable and limited police, code enforcement and attorney resources with frustratingly insignificant results.”

The California Board of Equalization, which oversees the state’s sales tax, says once a city approves medical marijuana outlets, it can use the tax revenue any way it wants.

Saenz’s proposal will be debated by the San Bernardino city council on Aug. 19.

So if the City Attorney is ready for marijuana that means everybody must be too.

If we are growing marijuana we must be alive.

We grow marijuana, therefore we alive.
