Agreed with @10
The Ave, Roosevelt-and-65th, and Northgate stations are what's gonna really make this explode.
You could argue that opening the Husky Stadium station and not making sure they could open the Ave station with it was a very strange choice.

What @7 said.
Social media is changing people (because everything that happens to everyone all the time changes everyone all the time), but more than changing people social media is amplifying people. Everyone has a platform. And every stupid thing any one says gets broadcast.

Homeless or not Charles people often move objects that don't fit in backpacks, satchels, or messenger bags around the city. And a HUGE problem with the post-car future that no one talks about is how exactly anyone is supposed to move stuff from place to place with public transit. At best its a miserable exercise in making everyone else on the bus hate you, and at worst its just impossible.
commented on Washington State Has a Strategic Pot Reserve
The over-careful regulations of the WA weed industry have really hamstrung it.
Step 1: Combine the recreational and medicinal systems (make every dispensary a store and every store a dispensary) so that everyone has more access to legal weed.
Step 2: Continue to work to drive the price of legal weed down until it actually competes with illegal weed on price and people buy less illegal weed and more legal weed.
Step 3: Allow larger volume retail packaging and sales. why have I never seen legal weed packaged in a larger quantity than an eighth? Lots of people buy lots of ounces and halves. Weed has a good shelf-life and sharing it is deeply ingrained in the culture. When people toke up in a group, they're not each smoking their own weed out of their own fancy little $15 gram baggy. If it's legal for me to have an ounce, let me buy an ounce.
