Riverside County businessman Stewart Hauptman's latest venture gives new meaning to the term "recreational drugs." Until recently, he sold marijuana for medical use from a souped-up RV he parked outside a Norco clinic. He refurbished a 1985 Pace Arrow motor home, installing display cases, a baked-goods section and other amenities. He named the operation the Lakeview Collective-on-Wheels and parked the converted RV in a lot outside the clinic, where people were being evaluated for medical marijuana use. "That way, when patients came out of the clinic, they are able to get the medicine right away," said Hauptman, a Riverside County videographer-turned-cannabis-entrepreneur.
