Opinion—Getting stoned without spending a penny

Opinion

Seen in a store window at The Pike in downtown Long Beach, California, at 7:00 a.m. on 12/3/18.

Naughty or nice

Due to recreational weed, I got stoned on second-hand smoke while walking around The Pike and taking pictures.

We don’t allow people to walk around in public drinking recreational alcohol, so why do we let them walk around in public smoking recreational weed? Anywhere they want.

In California, cigarette/cigar/pipe smokers are required to stay 20′ away from building entrances, and some buildings require a greater distance. Either there is no such requirement for recreational weed smokers, or no one—Not buildings. Not the police. No one—is enforcing the law.

Are recreational weed smokers not considered “smokers” under the law? I know how these legal things work.

Could I wind up in jail because I’m stumbling around in public seemingly drunk but simply stoned on second-hand recreational weed smoke?

I’m thinking that recreational weed smokers need a few more regulations, perhaps a combination of alcohol and smoking laws, such as no recreational weed smoking in public, or driving under the influence of recreational weed….

It’s Thursday! That means from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., downtown La Mesa hosts their “Back to the ’50s” classic car show.

There will be classic cars from several generations parked in La Mesa Village, many with the hoods up so you can see the beautiful engines, and many more cruising the streets.

Here are a few pictures from previous shows:

During the classic car cruise, there are a group of us who get together at the Walkway of the Stars to play some games of chess.

Speed chess

Don’t worry if you can’t play chess as fast as that! I used a video editing program to speed things up a wee bit……

But if you enjoy playing chess, or would like to learn, come visit us from 5:00-8:00 p.m. each Thursday during the Back to the ’50s classic car cruise in the La Mesa Village at the Walkway of the Stars.

After today, there is only one more Thursday Back to the ’50s classic car cruise, but we plan on playing chess at the Walkway of the Stars forever and ever. However, actual day and time is still to be determined.

If you can’t make it but would like more information about future chess get-togethers, email me at russelraypc@aol.com. And no making fun of me because I still have an AOL email address. I’ve been too busy playing chess to change email providers…………….

While many of the cars cruising La Mesa Boulevard are lovingly cared for and in showroom condition, many of them are simply owned by folks like you and me!

You don’t have to have a 1950’s car in order to cruise around the Village!

You don’t even have to have a 1950’s car to participate as an official Back to the 1950s! car! All you need is a car that was built in 1973 or earlier.

Those show cars are unique and beautiful, but sometimes it’s also the non-show cars that garner some of the attention.
