Someone will be in LA (Santa Monica near Venice Beach) for a couple days in the near future and is wondering whether they are able to obtain a card for medicinal marijuana and smoke it while there legally (questions about legit medical issues aside, so please don't focus on the ethics of that).
From my time there, I recall there are a lot of places that would probably offer him a prescription off the street on Venice Beach from when I was last there, but I don't do this sort of thing so have no clue.
The second part of this is, if he were to obtain one, and is just staying in a hotel, where could he go to smoke this? Could he go to the place that sold it to him? What other options exist to consume it legally? Edibles are of course an option.
And lastly, if he were to eat edibles on his last day before going to the airport, would he be in any trouble as long as he had nothing on him? Not sure if dogs would smell that kind of thing.
