Marijuana Hits

Claremont's making news, regionally speaking.

The Foothill Cities Blog picked up on our post from Wednesday and ran with it. They found a YouTube performance Arlo Guthrie's "Coming into Los Angeles." Check it out, and feel free to weigh in.

Incidentally, did anyone actually see the City Council meeting where the medical marijuana dispensaries were approved? We hear Sam Pedroza was looking a little shaky and tongue-tied in talking about the isssue.

Maybe it was the late hour. As always happens with the most controversial Claremont council agenda items, it got placed last on the list, so that it was after midnight when the matter was finally voted on. That way, people give and go home before the item comes up for discussion.

You can see the action yourself on the local public access channel (29) on Time Warner cable next Monday beginning at 8:00pm. You may have to tape it though, it will run at least 5-1/2 hours.
