One of the joys of Bay Area living is the unusual headlines in the paper. To whit: Alameda County pot clinics can now sell hashish:
The main changes to the ordinance, however, involve proposals that came during the ordinance’s two-year review.
The one change will allow licensed dispensaries in unincorporated Alameda County to carry hashish, more commonly called hash, a more concentrated and potent form of cannabis. No dispensary, however, can carry more than 1.5 pounds of the product at a given time. Some medical marijuana users prefer hashish due to its potency and variety of ways it may be used.
The other main change outlaws those dispensaries from carrying any food made with marijuana. That proposal, from the county’s department of environmental health, was due to the county’s concern about knowing the origins of ingredients in the food.
It is not believed any of the dispensaries sell marijuana-laced food.
These concerns don’t tend to pop up elsewhere in the country.
