California to Legalize Weed for Everyone This means no scrip needed to get your smoke on, if voters say yes to an initiative in the works for our November ballot. The California Constitution would be amended with this "Inalienable Rights Enforcement Initiative" that would allow marijuana to be sold wherever alcohol is available. So if you're ready to fight for your right to get high, this could be your lucky election day. Of course, where things get debatable is the sales tax issue, and at 82 comments, that debate ran off course and into the ground. [Also our #1 Recommended post.]

Where are the Best Fireworks in Los Angeles? Well, since by law they can't be in your front yard (for most of us, at least) we asked our readers to tell us where they've been and where they'll go to see fireworks for this 4th of July.
