I was always under the impression one could go to any school yard and purchase as much marijuana as he wanted from any school kid. (The hardest part would be going to the school yard - maybe as school lets out?) We supposedly have medical m.j. here, and it's supposedly very expensive and very hard to get a prescription for. Whereas, a young person of my acquaintance assures me if I ever need some for cancer or whatever, they can get me as much as I want - 'it's everywhere!'.
