Jimmy Fitzy - Pot Shill

Well, it looks like Jim Fitzpatrick -  chronically unemployed former Costa Mesa Planning Commissioner and briefly elected Director of the Costa Mesa Sanitary District Board before he was forced to resign for holding the office illegally - has actually found his calling.  Yep, the days of trying to get folks to wash their cars with a mouthful of spit and skulking around, picking up scraps from the movers and shakers among us, seem to be over.  Now Jimmy Fitzy is consulting as a shill for medical marijuana interests.  I'm sure his family is very proud.

Recently Jimmy Fitzy spent 62 minutes on Hemp Radio locally, regaling the hostesses with his background as an "international business executive" and a "retired" planning commissioner (does one "retire" from an appointed position?) who is peddling himself as - are you ready? - a "Solutioneer"!  Yep, he readily admits stealing that phrase from Disney.  He's selling himself as a "land use expert" and a "marijuana expert" and is eager to spread the wealth of his information to help potential dispensary operators and/or cities manage their marijuana issues.  He specifically mentioned "seniors" as a group that needs help acquiring the "medicine".

You can listen to that full hour plus HERE.  Unfortunately, you'll probably find yourself having to stare at the goofy photo of him holding the sign saying "I Am A Solutioneer" while you listen.  My suggestion is to shrink the window as small as possible while the audio is playing.

This audio clip of the recent podcast is VERY enlightening.  He has the women hosting the program so enthralled that they seem almost orgasmic!  One of his more provocative suggestions for the dispensation of medical marijuana is for marijuana interests to buy an entire strip mall, use the dispensary as the anchor for the mall, and have ancillary businesses nearby.   I don't know exactly what his vision is, but perhaps those "ancillary" businesses might include vape shops and massage parlors.  He does mention they might be other "medical" uses, so those might qualify.

About 43 minutes in he and the hostesses chide Katrina Foley for her suggestion of a tax on the square footage of marijuana grow area, suggesting that she doesn't know what she's talking about.

He also suggests reducing enforcement costs and increasing sales tax revenue as a solution for cities facing municipal bankruptcy.

We learned that Jim Baker, his father-in-law in Seattle - who apparently doesn't much like him - has marijuana use on his bucket list!  Really?  I imagine old Jim is happy Jimmy Fitzy is telling the world about THAT!  While there over Thanksgiving he "used his political contacts here to meet the Bill Gates of pot" while doing his "research" on the issue.

He tells the audience that he believes in market forces - that the bad marijuana operators will "weed themselves out", so to speak.

So, on the one hand, I guess I'm happy Jimmy Fitzy is actually finally earning a living.  On the other hand... a weed shill?  It's going to be very interesting to see how his "career" plays out.  Now sit back, hit that link up top and prepare to be dazzled by the salesmanship and "expertise" of Jimmy Fitzy!  Good grief!

Its just another of his idiotic but brief job descriptions to add to his rather sad resume. I'll bet his father-in-law cringes to think of his granddaughters being raised with that guy.

I hope they don't try this in Costa Mesa. I'd hate to see an entire mall with that crap in it.

Pot will insure that our youth languishes, unemployed and living at home. Just take a look at Fitz.

This is a way to permanently insure that social security runs out with no work force to back it up (snicker)

I wonder what Boy Jimmy's father-in-law thinks about his daughter working hard at the same company for many years while this nimrod spends his days bootlicking weirdos and promoting weed.

A strip mall anchored by a dispensary, with a check cashing place, hookah lounge, ice cream shop, liquor store, pizza by the slice, urgent care clinic, cell phone sales, and Roland Barrera's next club!

Those women in the show, especially the one named patticakes, come off as complete idiots the way they fawned over Fitz. And they clearly had no idea who they were interviewing when they stated they hate drunks and then later said that Monahan's bar was full of drunks! Of course fitz didn't come to Monahan's defense when they said that as he's one of the biggest drunks there!

Though I rarely use the term "hate", I HATE MARIJUANA AND THE CULTURE IT'S SPAWNED. I find nothing interesting or redeeming about it.
I grew up around here with it during the late 60's and the early 1970's and was traumatized by the stoned adults. It was a scary thing. I am probably not rational about this.
Nonetheless, I leave when I smell the stench of it and won't tolerate it in my presence.
The medical use is a transparent lie to get backdoor legalization. It has no double blind and peer reviewed studies showing the efficacy of the stuff for any medical condition.
If it was useful, the big pharma companies would have synthesized it years ago to profit off it.
THC is just a means of getting high.
Keep that stinky crap out of my city, my city council, and my schools.
Never Never Never Never.
It makes you stupid in the long term. That has been studied in the past and more recently.
I am clear?
