San Francisco Bureauweenies Regulate Marijuana Brownies

Where liberals rule, nothing goes unregulated — not even pot brownies. In San Francisco,

the City’s Department of Public Health has rules for legitimate edible cannabis treats at medical marijuana dispensaries.

For instance, anything that requires refrigeration is right out unless the dispensary applies for an exemption, so you might want to rethink your plans for a soda fountain at your dispensary.

In fact, making anything look like candy which might attract children — such as candy bars wrapped in packaging meant to mimic popular brands — is also forbidden.

The packaging does, however, have to state the amount of marijuana in the food, and whether it contains any potential allergens such as nuts.

Only members of a dispensary are allowed to make the products, and if they intend to sell them at more than one location, they need to have a food handler’s permit.

Maybe that’s the way to combat illicit drugs: have The State sanctify them, them regulate them until no one thinks they’re fun anymore.

Meanwhile, the same city is moving toward outlawing soda:

The San Francisco policy, the result of an executive order from Mayor Gavin Newsom, dictates vending machines on city property can no longer dispense Coke, Pepsi and other calorically sweetened beverages. Sports drinks and artificially sweetened water also are included in the ban.

Next on the path to a total soda ban,

Newsom also wants to impose a retail fee on soda, part of a multifaceted approach to tackling obesity.

Newsom must force his subjects to stop drinking soda to compensate for the calories they’ll pack on if Proposition 19 passes, making marijuana brownies legal in California even for those who don’t want to pretend they’re “medicinal.” But don’t worry, the legal brownies will still be regulated down to the last psychotropic crumb.

They ought to be named Victory Brownies, in honor of the Victory Gin that Outer Party members guzzle to anesthetize themselves in 1984.
