Who Says Drug Warriors Can't Be Funny?

California, dispensaries, drug warrior, Medical Marijuana

Folks, it's official: Opposition to safe, legal access to medical marijuana for seriously ill patients has dwindled to the point where only the most obnoxious blowhards like Bill O'Reilly even bother stoking it.

Here he is spouting off on the latest lie from the White House drug czar's office that medical marijuana dispensaries outnumber Starbucks coffee shops in San Francisco. My colleague Aaron Smith has already exposed this nonsense as a complete fabrication, and it's already been reported in the San Francisco Chronicle, but apparently even imaginary dispensaries are enough to scare the crap out of guys like O'Reilly.

Funny, but O'Reilly and his staff didn't bother to talk to anyone who might have set the record straight. Wouldn't want to let the truth get in the way of a good story, after all.
