I Somehow Doubt This Is a Licensed Emergency Vehicle

Over the weekend we discovered flyers on our doorstep for something called the "Green Re-Leaf Delivery Service."

At first I thought it might be some kind of eco-friendly gardening service, but upon closer inspection, I realized it was offering marijuana delivery. Welcome to Berkeley.

Have we really reached the point where ordering marijuana is as easy as getting a pizza? (Of course, you'll end up ordering a pizza after the marijuana anyway, so everyone wins.)

It's a glossy, professional-looking flyer — with far better production values than most of the delivery restaurants in our area offer. On the reverse side it says if you present the flyer to the driver, he'll give you a free joint.

But is the guy really going to pull up in this vehicle? And what sort of emergency would require him to use the siren? ("Hello, Green Re-Leaf? We just put on 'The Big Lebowski' — I need you here STAT!")

Eric Holder is SO going to bust this operation.
