CulturePuffPuff: Where is Weed World?

Puff: Where is Weed World?

We've already had the Gold Rush, now it's time for the Green Rush -- how about we start with a cannabis amusement park?

PUFF Further proof that on Election Day of last year, we went through some kind of time slip into Bizarro Land thus electing an idiot as president is how the City has responded to the Bay Area cannabis community. Case in point is the fiasco as City Hall where the joys of marijuana were reduced to a political tool used to make political gain rather create a bold new idea. Luckily, it didn’t work.

As things finally settle down, I still have one question, “San Francisco, Where is Weed World?”

With legal recreational weed usage a few months away, it is going to bring intrigued tourists in by the millions to try our legendary cannabis, the Green Rush. So where are all these tourist stoners going to go when they get legally high, not to mention the 73% of locals who voted it in? A big fuss was made about smoking in front of a dispensary, but where can everyone actually go?

My answer is Weed World. So take note, this is my idea, so no copying it. I will sue. If you are a venture capitalist, hit me up with funding, and we can make it happen.

I think the City should donate or buy one of these blocks in San Francisco that has been closed down and boarded up forever because the landowners are waiting to make major bucks selling it for ugly, expensive condos being bought up by the people who are ruining that artistic landscape of the City. Take that block and build a giant indoor mall made for stoners. There can be movie theaters, cocktail lounges, hair and nail salons, dab bars, arcades, cafes, rides, sensory experiences, munchies bars, cannabis education classes, art and crafts, thrift stores, medical marijuana seminars, hemp clothing bazaars — anything a stoner Willy Wonka can imagine.

People can pay a fee to enter with different levels to choose from, kind of like a lift ticket at a ski lodge. Save the most on the season pass!

It would help the economy by renting out the stalls at a bargain price to local companies who cannot afford to open an actual stand alone store any more.

Plus it would make San Francisco cool! We are the largest city close to the Emerald Triangle. There will be marijuana resorts and farms to visit for miles in the future. Very similar to the wine country today. Why not create the epicenter of marijuana activity in this city? Open up the green gateway for the cannabis curious worldwide. “Come on in, take as many photographs and samples as you like, be sure and visit our souvenir shop on the way out! We ship worldwide.”

This is how it should be here in San Francisco, the bastion of independent and open minded thinking.

Shame on everyone who is letting the politics of weed get in the way of an obvious economic goldmine that is NOT going to kick long-term tenants out of their home and WILL provide income to ALL KINDS of workers, not just greedy land developers and tech moguls.

Let’s get to work creating a giant welcome to legal recreational marijuana use. It is not something to fear. Embrace it, it has been here a long time illegally and as medicine.

So investment capitalists interested in my proposal, I have some time free next week to talk. Let’s do lunch. I will bring a Fuzzy!

Time to light up!
