|Inside a marijuana shop.
Legal marijuana isn’t hard to get in L.A. Just go to a doctor who advertises in certain weekly publications (ahem), tell her you have back pain, get a piece of paper, show it to the dispensary nearby, and buy some bud. Or, simply ask the hippie on the beach for a nugget.
But pro-marijuana activists in California have been envious of the full, recreational legalization seen in states like Colorado and Washington.

And California pioneered the legalization of medical weed way back in 1996. Enter the Marijuana Policy Project.
