100-Word Rant: Marijuana

September 18, 2017 — by Kyle Wang

Reporter argues that people should not immeadiately associate weed with California

We here in California are stereotyped as loving two specific leafy greens with supposed medicinal and health benefits: kale and marijuana. While I don’t object to a kale smoothie, marijuana doesn’t offer such “good vibes.”

In truth, not all Californians love the idea of legalized weed — not all of us felt particularly high when Prop. 64 passed, or when Gov. Jerry Brown subsequently proposed legislation allowing recreational and medicinal marijuana to be sold at the same locations.

Ultimately, California, with its beautiful beaches and sky-high (pun intended) forests, is one of the Nature’s most beautiful gardens.

Some of us just want to keep the weeds out.
