The ever-quotable Amy Lathen nearly got booed out of the room when she used the word ‘pot’ at a meeting in which El Paso commissioners discussed ways to zone medical marijuana outlets.
“Cannibis! Cannibis!” shouted several people in the room.

That’s like separating the image of mom from apple pie.
It’s also a little disengenuous when you buy your pot, or rather, cannibis, at places like WeedMaps. com.
