No Hang Tens For Surf City Pot Shops

Huntington Beach may be Surf City of the 60’s Beach Boy reign
But when it comes to culture clash the relations are somewhat strained
The voters of California ruled in favor of medical marijuana by passing Prop 215
But walk the streets of the Surf City and not a single pot shop is on the scene
We all want zoning to property values protect and upward control
But banning a legal business should never be a city’s sanctioned role
Unlike Colorado but like now Ohio pot in the Golden State has never been approved for recreational use
Probably most of the observance of regulations limiting to sale to patients are way too fast and loose
But the proper way to deal with the problem is not with the equivalent of nuclear attack
But enforcement against those dispensaries whose adherence to restrictions on dispensing seem to lack
Surf’s up but regulations and bans have not ebbed down
Way too uptight image for a surfing town
