Call Me Naive

A friend recently provided a link to this site.

Ok, I'm really confused.

The site is based in Amsterdam, where marijuana is legal.

But isn't marijuana illegal in the U.S. and many other countries?

So how can these guys ship things like bongs and pot seeds all over the world?

I wonder if this is akin to those poker sites that are run overseas, where most of their customers are American. Yet they somehow manage to operate without violating any U.S. anti-gambling laws. And without paying any income taxes.

My friend, who lives in California, also provided links to this site and this site, which pertain to i.d. cards for medical marijuana use. Which apparently are widely available in California.

My head is spinning.

As perhaps the only 30-year-old American who has never (and I mean never even once, believe it or not) smoked pot, I got even more anxious viewing these sites than I did that time I accidentally stumbled into some Asian porn while doing legal research on my computer at work.
