On Monday, narcotics officers and anti-drug crusaders are scheduled to gather in the Inland Empire for the first-ever “Marijuana Policy Conference,” a powwow aimed at weakening the devil weed's grip on our society.
But 72 hours before the convocation, exactly where they plan to gather is unclear.
A group of unwelcome guests — pro-cannabis activists — have pledged to protest the proceedings, which are supposed to be at a city-owned convention center in Rancho Cucamonga.
Or are they? On Friday, an e-mail blast purportedly from conference organizers says that the convention has been moved at the last second because of “hostile” and “dangerous” “radical drug legalization groups.”
A new location is in the works and will be announced late Sunday. Or will it? Marijuana activists say this last-minute venue change is a trick aimed at putting them off the scent.
Pot is certainly making someone paranoid.
