weed is legal in california, and yesterday we were invited to a weed thing

trust me, i dont believe it either. i grew up thinking that even though weed never killed nobody and guns kill everyone, one of the strange dichotomies of the world would be that guns would be legal and weed would not.

forever and ever amen.

but once colorado and then oregon didnt blow up in a spectacular explosion of OMG after they legalized Satan’s Sunflower, the floodgates opened and everyone with sense wanted their states to get in on the greenrush of the 21st century. not only was the tax money great but secretly many of these holier than thou nay sayers remember the time when they toked the sticky icky back in college and giggled and ate and fell asleep with stupid smiles.

amber is more connected than you think and being a concierge at one of the fanciest hotels in 90210 has its perks. one of them is high class companies want to get in their heads so when VIPs ask things like “wheres a good sushi joint nearby” or “how can i score weed”? they will answer in an educated way.

Dosit, formerly Hmblt, is a California weed company with a unique vapor pipe. For $45 you can get one of Dosit’s 6 different strains that will either slow you down, pick you up, or steer you into a mood somewhere inbetween. Unlike smoking the traditional way of pipe, bong, or apple, vaping produces no skunky smell. Thus fancy pants hotels LOVE them. (as do their fancy pants guests.)

but what makes Dosit such a compelling device is it has this little vibrator in the pipe so you know when you have ingested the recommended dose. Thus you will never get “too high” if you just take one or two puffs. It’s weird to think that people need help to know when theyre doing too much, but people do. especially newbies or stoned people.

last night’s meeting was at a fancy beverly hills rental house where delicious foods were served and beautiful members of the Dosit company explained its name change, the various strains, and all the ways hotels can connect their guests to these devices without having to actually sell them the units themselves.

but best of all we got to taste the merchandise.

Dosit has several strains with cute names like Bliss, Arouse, Passion, Sleep, and Relief, but the one that intrigued me the most was Calm.

Calm has only trace amounts of THC (the natural element that gets you high) but a bunch of CBD that chills you out, especially if you are experiencing anxiety.

one of the employees told me that sometimes people eat too many edibles or experience weed that is way too strong for them. the solution: a few puffs of Calm which will bring them back to Earth.

so i tried some Passion, some Bliss, and when we were about to get into our Uber i puffed on some Calm to see if it brought me down. I can’t say it did (maybe I had had too much fun) but i loved the concept and will eagerly try it again if i ever do find myself in a perilous situation.

the 200 hit pipes go for $125 making it a pretty decent value. and best of all if you return your spent weed pens to the place of purchase they will give you $5 back, thus all of this was recycling, which Mother Earth appreciates.

i slept like a baby last night and woke up with a smile this morning. thanks Dosit!

cop shows up in my uber backseat, an undercover one

he has a beautiful wife.

but as i have told many before, i can find out everything about my passengers within the first 5 minutes of the ride as long as they talk to me.

it’s like that weird 20 Questions game you can get at the drug store as a stocking stuffer.

whenever i pick up someone from a hotel i ask them if theyre in from outta town and usually they are. so i ask them where and they tell me.

this pair was from Denver. they seemed rich. it was a fancy hotel. Uber Select. going to a fancy restaurant. so i say, may i ask you a question about where youre from?

they straightened up with excitement.

i said, LA will soon have legal weed. your state has had it and has made a billion in tax revenue in less than a year. that seems like a lot of pot. has it negatively affected your city at all? has anything drastically changed?

then he revealed to me that he was a cop. he said that the only thing that has changed is more tourists come to town. other than that crime is neither up nor down. all is well. then he added this:

“the sheriff and i sit on his porch and pass a joint back and forth. it’s nice.”

he did say this interesting fact… that emergency room visits are up, usually from hotels, of tourists who buy edibles and eat too many of them and freak out. they get rushed to the hospital where they just have to wait for the THC to get through their system.

i said, so if LA was to learn anything from Colorado it would be to pay great care to edibles?

he said yes. make sure they are clearly marked with the dosage and each cookie or brownie or whatever should be equal to ONE DOSE.

it was a very pleasant conversation and he gave me a $5 tip and then said

I’d give you $4.20 but you were superb.

voted today cuz i love america and female presidents and plants


longest line ive ever seen at the church where ive been voting for the last 15 years.

there were two lines for the two precincts that vote here. never had i had to stand out in the hallway before.


you had to look at the voter rolls to see if you found your name. if your name was on the left you stood in line on the right.

if your name was on the right you could just walk right in that door.


i didnt like the fact that the church was politicking in a way with their huge board advertising a “drug-free summit”

despite the fact that we were all voting on a measure that would legalize the “drug” marijuana.

before i had a chance to call bullshit someone else called bullshit and they removed the sign.

which is why i love my hollywood neighbors and why i feel good that everything i voted for will win.


two things we know are true: if you dont have an I Voted sticker, you didnt vote.

and if you didnt take a selfie of some sort it was all a dream.

but it was really nice to vote for the first female US president.

and weed.


i may not be a huge success but im not a fucking sellout asshole liar

head of the DEA

this is Drug Enforcement Administration chief Chuck Rosenberg.

just look at him.

his whole life he has seen people smoke weed.

he knows people who have smoked weed.

but one thing we know for sure: he has never ever ever seen someone smoke weed and die.

he hasn’t even read about it.

but yesterday he got on the mic and said that, indeed, marijuana should be considered just as dangerous as LSD and heroin.

heroin, of course, is a drug where if someone takes too much of it they will die.

but Drug Enforcement Administration chief Chuck Rosenberg doesn’t want to do the right thing today.

he doesn’t want to say, weed has never killed anyone. it’s easy to stop doing. and it’s easy to regulate.

it’s as easy to deal with as booze or cigarettes, and in fact we could make a ton of money off sales tax and other sorts of taxes if we wanted.

but instead of that we want to lock people in jails, and take their shit, and take their money and ruin their lives.

Drug Enforcement Administration chief Chuck Rosenberg basically said yesterday that the laws surrounding marijuana are more dangerous than the plant itself

and thats ok with him

because he’s a fucking tool

on the take

just like his predecessor

and the one before that one.

this is the biggest thing im disappointed in obama about.

because he fucking knows too.
