According to the BBC, California is going to allow vending machines to dispense medical marijuana. You've got to have a prescription, of course, and it's not going to be like buying cigarettes in days gone by (although wouldn't that be groovy....?), but it's remarkable, nonetheless. Here's's take on the story.

I was out in L.A. last fall. All of my transplanted NYC friends told me that getting a 'prescription' is pretty easy, and there are lots of places to legally fill it. So I'm not really sure how or even if this will change anything at all there. Maybe it's just another small step toward giving the world over to the robots—damn you, Karl Capek!
