I caught a show about a family in California who makes their living in the shadow economy of medical marijuana. Although marijuana is currently illegal under federal law, 17 states have come up with some sort of medical marijuana program. One dispensary, Harborside Health Center, is at the center of much controversy and scrutiny by the local tax collectors in Oakland, and the feds may kick in the door and shut them down at any time. Steve DeAngelo is the owner and executive director of Harborside, and runs it along with his brother. It’s a labor of love with the goal of providing medicine to those in need. Check it out on Discovery Channel.
