Will be visiting for the first time in about 20 years, and have heard so much about the medical marijuana dispensaries, etc. What's the set up? Is it easy for a guy from out of town to get his hands on a little bud? If so, how di I go about it? I don't want to do anything seedy or look for a street dealer or anything crazy like that.

Slow your roll, Robert.

Pursuant to CA H&S code 11362.5, you will need a prescription (actually, recommendation, since cannabis is illegal on the fed level) from a physician to legally buy cannabis in CA. This recommendation must be signed by a CA licensed physician. Additionally, you will need to present a CA State ID (DL or ID Card) when buying cannabis at a dispensary or applying for a State 215 ID Card.

So, you will need to move here, establish residency, find a doctor to recommend cannabis to you, THEN you can buy it at a dispensary.

Sorry to ruin your travel plans.

If you're in the mood for some light reading, here is an explanation:
CA Codes (hsc:11357-11362.9)

An informative answer, with a legal citation. Nicely done.

Good thing is that if you stand in hollywood BLVD next to the Kodak theater, and crip walk while singing a frank sinatra song, snoop will come out of nowhere and offer you a dime bag for free.

Down at Venice beach they have a weed clinic and a dr to give you a prescription. Just google Organic medirex consultations. It's really easy to get your scrip and meds.

MacArthur Park. Pick up a Green Card and a fake Social Security card while you are at it.
