Last Friday, medical marijuana sales were climbing as more dispensaries
opened (http://commonhealth.wbur.org/2015/10/medical-marijuana-sales-massachusetts). Medical marijuana patients purchased some 1,676 ounces of marijuana in September, up from the 1,488 ounces sold in August. The increase comes
as the state's second dispensary opened in Brockton. Click on the link

On Tuesday, the Detroit city council approved dispensary regulations (http://www.freep.com/story/news/2015/10/13/detroit-council-passes-rules-marijuana-shops/73862866/).
The city council approved regulations to govern the city's booming
dispensary business. There are an estimated 150 dispensaries operating
in the city. Now, dispensaries will have to get a license or be shut
down, and operators will have to undergo a police background check. The regulations also bar drive-through services and bans staying open 24
hours a day.

It is by the beans of cacao that the thoughts acquire speed,
the thighs acquire girth, the girth become a warning.
It is by theobromine alone I set my mind in motion."
