Best Trend (2010)

Medical Marijuana

Time was, you had to know a guy who knew a guy who knew a guy, and then you had to waste all weekend hanging out with people you didn't really like just to score a bag of weed. Now, it's legal—with a prescription, of course—and all you have to do is walk to your local mini-mall, hit the dispensary and choose from a vast menu of primo ganja. Or if you're too lazy for that, just dial a friendly delivery service and have some medicine delivered to your doorstep. Start dialing those digits while you can because the list of OC cities that have banned dispensaries is growing all the time, with Lake Forest and Costa Mesa the most recent to file lawsuits aimed at forcing them out of business. If that's bumming you out, don't forget to vote in favor of Proposition 19 this November, which would legalize marijuana—up to an ounce of it, that is—for anyone 21 and older, and you don't even need a doctor's note. Until then, just visit, click on "Ad Index" and scroll down to "Alternative Medicine," where, at last count, 35 different providers can put you on the stairway to herbal-healing heaven.
