REASON: Los Angeles Destroys Functioning Businesses in a Recession

'Los Angeles has lost over 150,000 jobs in the past year, is on the brink of bankruptcy, and experienced an unexpected 16 percent decline in sales tax revenue last year.

Yet this week the Los Angeles City Attorney’s office made a move that's certain to make things worse for its citizens: forcing over 400 functioning businesses to close shop, under threat of jail time.

Don’t worry, though. It’s no big deal. Those businesses are only selling medicine.'

'Here are some facts that substance abuse and prevention counselor Darcy Jensen overlooked in her April 19 Argus Leader column opposed to the legalization of medical marijuana.

Medical marijuana is not the only drug being used in the workplace. Employers have the same liability with narcotics prescribed by physicians, which, by the way, have a long and proven history of addiction, accidents and deaths associated with their use.

There are laws on the books for operating motor vehicles under the influence of drugs. If faced with the choice of meeting a driver or teacher under the influence of marijuana or prescription narcotics, I'd much rather be on the road or in the classroom with the person using marijuana.'
