As most of you know....I read a fair number of newspapers. I don't brag about this much in public. But this allows me to come across little stories that make you stop and ponder.
This week...from the Flint Journal...15 April, they reported that a local guy called up the cops. He'd lost his billfold.
Apparently, there were some critical documents in that billfold. There was the ID....which is always very important. There was the social security card....fairly important. And then, there was his medical marijuana card.
This billfold was apparently lost as he was pumping gas into his car over on Fenton Road in Flint.
I sat there a while....and kept wondering why you'd want to admit to the cops that you had a medical marijuana card. Course, I am from Bama, and I'd normally be thinking that this would trigger some cop to ask three or four extra questions that it'd be better not to answer.
So I sat pondering. How many folks are driving around today with a medical marijuana card? Fifty thousand? A million? I don't know.
Not being in the business of buying medical marijuana...I'm kinda wondering how you'd use it. Does it work like the Sam's Club card? Do you get a discount like at Costco? Is there a picture on it? Do you have certain brands of marijuana that are noted on the card as OK? Does the card work across state lines? If you flashed the card as a ID for cops....would it bring on added questions?
These are the questions that I ponder. Here's the other thing....which triggers a question now...is there a guy driving around Flint now....with this stolen medical marijuana card and using it to get his requirements?
Oh, and if you were wondering about the picture....yeah, I did some research. This California card cost $99. Some doctor examines you and pronounces you in need of medical marijuana. Pretty nifty.
