Someday, perhaps soon, you will leave work on a Friday night and head to the cannabis store...

...and meet with the weed garcon at the counter. You will ask him, "Sir, what are others smoking?"

"Good evening, kind patron. Why, this bud we've recently received seems to be a favorite. It's called 'Purple Crystal'."

Of course, you will sample the bouquet. You might even pull out a jeweler's glass to examine the crystals. But you will not leave empty-handed.

Home again to sample your purchase. Ahhhh... it's a couch-locker. Enjoy your Family Guy repeats.

Someday...

Copley News Service owner David Copley dies in La Jolla car crash

David C. Copley, heir to a newspaper family that for 78 years owned the Daily Breeze, died Tuesday night after a car crash in San Diego. He was 60.

Copley was the adopted grandson of Col. Ira Copley, who built a newspaper empire that stretched from California to Illinois. At the time the Breeze was sold in late 2006, David Copley was the company's CEO and president. Locally, Copley Press Inc. also owned The Beach Reporter and the Palos Verdes Peninsula News.

The gem of the empire was the San Diego Union-Tribune, which was a Pulitzer Prize in 2006.

Copley, 60, was driving his Aston Martin around 6:15 p.m. Tuesday at Eads Avenue and Silverado Street when he lost control and crashed into several parked cars, officials said.

San Diego Fire-Rescue Department authorities said Copley struck multiple parked vehicles before coming to a stop. Crews performed CPR to Copley before transporting him to Scripps Memorial Hospital-La Jolla, where a family friend confirmed his death.
