Last week, a mural that pot smokers and even non-tokers appreciated was buffed back to beige. The building, which once housed the Oaklandish University, was recently sold and the new owner decided he did not want to be associated with the Pot College. Recent vandalism to the mural also may have effected the decision, but many people in the community were sad to see it go. It definitely added color and life to the rather colorless downtown area of Oakland.
