Monday's California Dreaming segment will be all about California's curious pot culture, where those in need have been able to legally procure marijuana from state licensed dispensaries for over a decade. To get you in the mood, we did a search of Youtube for "weed pot ganja white widow california thai stick" and this is what we found.
1 - What is a marijuana dispensary? - 90 seconds of everything you ever wanted to know but were afraid to ask. We don't vouch for the legality or accuracy of this information, and that WAS NOT us picking up our prescription in the background.

2 - Medical Marijuana Vending Machine - Surely, somewhere in California, there must be a drive-thru dispensery a la the drive-thru liquor stores you occasionally encounter in the South and Southwest.
3 - Larry David gets high - We love Larry David. There are actually better clips of this episode available, but we think the scan-line look produced by shooting a video screen with a video camera is appropriate to the material.
4 - Pot bust gone wrong! - Not a California story, but paranoia knows no borders.
5 - Can you name the largest cash crop in California?
6 - Your brain on pot, watching pot.
Have a good one! And a special, Daydreaming shout-out to NPR summer intern Sarah Whites-Koditschek, who found these videos for us on her last day of work. Best of luck, Sarah!
