I just wanna say, whoever owns the store “Mary Jane Makes Your Heart Sing” in Springfield – you are my hero. Check this out:
Two city councilors are calling for the immediate closure of a Page Boulevard store that is giving out “free” marijuana with a $20 cover charge during a state ban on retail pot sales. Council President Orlando Ramos and Councilor Michael Fenton said the store, Mary Jane MakesYour Heart Sing, at 1865 Page Boulevard, is clearly trying to dodge the current retail ban by claiming there are no sales.
“This is clearly an illegal operation, and they must be shut down immediately,” Ramos said.
Alright, first of all, we’ve written about Orlando Ramos before. A year or so ago he went after the Springfield Cop who runs their Facebook page because he was reporting the news. Note even kidding. He was upset with Sgt. John Delaney for reporting what happened in a couple press releases, and because those things didn’t paint a pretty enough picture, Orlando Ramos thought they shouldn’t have been said:
“I want it shut down – now,” Fenton said. “I have received complaints from constituents. The sale of recreational marijuana is currently prohibited under state law and subject to a moratorium that we passed here in Springfield.”
No dipshit, the sale of recreational marijuana was voted on by the people in November. It’s not our fault that this state’s bloated bureaucracy has intentionally made sure that the will of the people was ignored. Just as we predicted it would be.
Late Wednesday morning, Councilor Thomas Ashe, chairman of the Public Safety Committee, joined in criticizing the store operation. Ashe said his initial reaction was “shock,” and he assumes that local law enforcement will take “immediate action to address this.”
“Clearly, this company is skirting the intent of the law,” Ashe said.
Skirting the intent of the law?? How bout skirting the intent of the voters? Ya know, the people who pay your salary and just voted for weed at every corner store? The law we just voted on says that this place can sell weed. So if you’d just go ahead and let them do it, then wouldn’t have to skirt around anything.
And what do you want the Springfield PD to do? What law is this place breaking that the cops should bust them for? It’s a $20 cover to get in the store. What law does a $20 cover violate? The city won’t let them sell weed so they give it away instead. In other words, they outsmarted you, you’re mad, and now you’re throwing a hissy fit. Seriously, what a bunch of salty ho’s.
Voters last November legalized recreational marijuana in Massachusetts, but retail sales were placed on hold pending local and state regulations. A sign on the store’s door states: “Upon Entry Please Head to the Cashier to Pay the Cover Charge of $20 (non-refundable). Prior to Exiting You Will Receive Your Free Sample* or $20 towards Your Purchase.”
Fenton said that state law (MGL c. 94G, Section 7(a)(4) states that an individual 21 years of age or older may give away or otherwise transfer certain amounts of marijuana, as long as the transfer is not advertised or promoted to the public.
“This company has a website and is promoting marijuana to the public,” Fenton said. “They are plainly in violation of the law as they are selling marijuana for recreation. I expect the SPD (Springfield Police Department) to move swiftly with enforcement in shutting down this operation. This activity needs to be stopped before it expands.”
Visitors to the store also have a VIP option, for $50, that comes with three samples.
They’re not selling marijuana for recreation. They’re giving it away moron. See, it says right on their website, “Free Herb”:
Watching this idiot piss his pants about this is worth the price of admission:
Bro, have you even gone through puberty? Look, I’m sorry you were never invited by the cool kids to burn one down at the parties you were never invited to. But the fact of the matter is, you tried to stop the will of the people, you got outsmarted, and you lost. Take the L (no pun intended) and go home, because at this point you’re just embarrassing yourself.
Most importantly, you morons are City Councilors in Springfield. Ya know when the next time I’m planning on going to Springfield is? Oh yea, never. Because Springfield is a cesspool of laardvarks and Thicky Minaj fupasloths collecting SSI while selling heroin on the side. There’s gangs, crime, and murder galore. And that’s not even counting when Princeza Aponte isn’t working at the Magic Lantern. Plus, we’re in the middle of an opiate epidemic and these asshats wanna go after weed? Huh? We talking about weed? Good thing they don’t have more pressing issues to worry about.
P.S. Another guy from Mass is selling a $325 empty plastic bag. He throws in an ounce of the good shit on the house with purchase of one of these $325 bags. We need more great thinkers like this.
